Yancey noted: "Today as I read the accounts of Jesus’ birth I tremble to think of the fate of the world resting on the response of two rural teenagers. How many times did Mary review the angel’s words as she felt the Son of God kicking the walls of her uterus? How many times did Joseph second-guess his own encounter with an angel – (was it) just a dream? - as he endured the hot shame of living among villagers who could plainly see the changing shape of his fiancee?"
