Born Divine, Robert Miller

Recently out from Polebridge Press is the following:

Robert J. Miller, Born Divine: The Births of Jesus and Other Sons of God
In this compelling study of the birth and infancy of Jesus, Robert Miller separates fact from fiction in the gospel narratives and relates them to stories about the miraculous births of Israelite heroes and of Greek and Roman sons of God. Born Divine analyzes the Christian claim that the birth and childhood of Jesus fulfilled Old Testament prophecies. The historical and theological dimensions of the virgin birth tradition are discussed with honesty and insight. This wide-ranging book also presents additional infancy gospels from the second century through the Middle Ages.
Polebridge Press Paperback, 360 pages 2002 ISBN 0-944344-95-X

The link above takes you to the Westar site which also features an excerpt:

Did Jesus Fulfill Prophecy? Probing Matthew's Gospel

This also features apparently in The Fourth R Volume 16, 2 (March/April 2003). Also available is the following:

Free on-line study guide

The latter is only any use if you have the book (which I have not yet), i.e. it's not free-standing. See also: Amazon link here.
