What would it be like to journey back to biblical times and talk with the mother of Jesus? To hear of Jesus' ministry firsthand from the one on earth who loved him the most? In this remarkable book, bestselling author Roberta Kells Dorr explores the person of Mary through the eyes of the physician Luke, the author of the third Gospel.
Determined to find answers to his many questions, Luke travels to Jerusalem with John and Peter to meet Mary. As he talks with this beautiful woman who is aged by time and sorrow, Luke hears the story of Mary's betrothal to Joseph, her visitation by an angel, and other events from Scripture. Captivated by her story, Luke travels with her to Bethlehem to reminisce about the events surrounding Jesus' birth.
Rich in cultural details, warm and personal in narrative, this imaginative novella will make the Gospel story of Jesus newly relevant for contemporary readers of all denominations. It is a beautiful gift for Easter and Mother's Day, and a timeless story that will appeal to fiction aficionados all year round.
