Among the many issues that plague Christian sensibilities, perhaps none is as stressful as the virgin birth. Since the advent of higher criticism the concept itself the concept had grown increasing untenable to the point that an anonymous cleric decided to take action in this booklet. Scientific study of the Bible had revealed that what had appeared to have been predictions were often mistranslations, and many were shaken by such revelations. Succinct and irenic, this treatment will be appreciated by Christians who are still concerned over the implications that serious biblical study raises.

Among the many issues that plague Christian sensibilities, perhaps none is as stressful as the virgin birth. Since the advent of higher criticism the concept itself the concept had grown increasing untenable to the point that an anonymous cleric decided to take action in this booklet. Scientific study of the Bible had revealed that what had appeared to have been predictions were often mistranslations, and many were shaken by such revelations. Hoping for a peaceful resolution of the growing tensions in turn-of-the-twentieth century church, the author addresses the issue directly. Only after examining the textual evidence does the author begin to consider the more practical questions such as who Jesus might be to readers of the period. Liturgical and doctrinal statements frequently allude to the status of Mary as a virgin. Events that had recently transpired in the church of the early twentieth century are brought to bear on the issue as well. Succinct and irenic, this treatment will be appreciated by Christians who are still concerned over the implications that serious biblical study raises.
