Product Information

The Virgin Birth of Christ (1907), written by Scottish Presbyterian minister and church historian James Orr , is a classic exposition of the scriptural integrity of the virgin birth of Christ. James Orr is widely known even in our day as the editor of the immensely popular International Standard Bible Encyclopedia. The ISBE is still used by many conservative Bible students as the “go-to” reference for Bible or church history information. Orr was an early defender of biblical integrity during the higher criticism battles of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. He was a contributor to the famous “Fundamentals” articles series that challenged the liberal theological trends of the time.

The book, The Virgin Birth of Christ, came out of a series of lectures given in New York to the Bible Teachers' Training School and consists of eight lectures.

These lectures are:

  • Statement of the case: issues and preliminary objections
  • The Gospel witnesses: genuineness and integrity of the records
  • Sources of the narratives: historical and internal credibility
  • The birth narratives and the remaining literature of the New Testament: alleged silence of the New Testament
  • Relation to Old Testament prophecy: witness of early church history
  • Mythical theories of origin of narratives of the virgin birth: alleged heathen analogies
  • Doctrinal bearings of the virgin birth: person of Christ as involving miracle: sinlessness and uniqueness
  • Doctrinal bearings of the Virgin birth: the incarnation: summary and conclusion.
