    Walter Wangerin writes like he speaks. I heard him speak at a conference in the late 90's and thoroughly enjoyed his dramatic, poetic flare. He swept his audience into the biblical world with his rich, deep voice and lyrical prose. Breath-taking. Heart-stopping.

    But 400 pages of it was a little more than I had bargained for.

    I found myself tempted to skip over portions of the book because I knew that portion of the story, or I wasn't interested in the character he was portraying at the moment. However, as I continued reading, I was captured by some outrageously wonderful description or seized with such emotion for Mary that I couldn't see through my tears.

    This book was the first of Wangerin's work I've read from cover-to-cover. I've often read his fabulous Book of God to read a chronological retelling of a portion of Scripture. No one can write a description in the gritty, unspeakable obvious like Walt Wangerin.

    He describes Martha, the sister of Mary and Lazarus: "Her great neck was so ringed with folds of flesh that they drove the lobes straight out below her ears." Can't you see a chubby Martha bustling around a house?

    He describes Jesus, deep in thought: "_something was on his mind, some driving conviction which he seemed, by the fierce bunching of his jaw muscles, the muscles in his temple, to be chewing, chewing, never swallowing."

    But the most precious—and soul-searching—descriptions were of Mary, the mother of our Lord Jesus. I've never before been so moved by the changes she endured as the mother of a miracle, and a boy, and the Messiah: "Mary doesn't hate the holy mysteries; but they shut her out; and if they are capable of love, it is a love too noble and composed to care about white hairs or the flab above a woman's elbow or the insufficiencies of her soul."

    Perhaps this book affected me so deeply because, a little like Mary, I'm discovering the exquisite pain of changing relationships with my children. They're growing older, becoming less dependent on me...and I'm becoming less relevant in their everyday lives. They're now the experts on culture and the world in which we live. I've become "cute" and "precious." When did that happen? ;)

    Jesus: A Novel, was a good read for me during the Fall season of the year and this season of my life. Perhaps it can speak to others during their own changing seasons.

    This is a beautiful book once I started I couldn't put it down. It is one of the best books I have read about Jesus. Walter makes you feel as if you are right there going on this journey with Mary and her beloved son Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior. I would highly recommend this book and have told my friends to get it. I am looking forward to reading more of Walter's book as he explores and gets right to the hearts of these wonderful people from the Bible.

    I haven't finished the book yet, but I can hardly put it down! Walter Wangrin has done it again. He is a very gifted writer. I would recommend any of his books.
