Publisher's Description

America's favorite inspirational novelist offers a fictional view of six of the family members of Jesus, all anchored by Scriptural truth, creating a life-changing and unprecedented emotional connection to the Bible.
Through "The Family of Jesus," readers will develop an emotional connection to the family members of Jesus, learning about their lives and falling in love with Scripture along the way. Bible studies and devotionals abound, and in churches everywhere people gather to seek a deeper understanding of God's word and its application to their lives. But too often these studies engage only the analytic approach to Bible learning.
In "The Family of Jesus," #1 "New York Times "bestselling novelist Karen Kingsbury will make you laugh, cry, and ultimately care more deeply about the Bible by helping you grasp the truths in Scripture not just with your mind, but with your heart. The characters in these short stories were among those closest to Jesus--Mary, Joseph, Jesus' brother James, John the Baptist, Zechariah, and Elizabeth. Each has a compelling tale to tell. Kingsbury intersperses fictional, emotionally gripping details anchored in Scripture with historical and theological insights and questions that will guide soul-searching and reflection.
"The Family of Jesus "not only provides a deeper understanding of the relatives of our Savior, but also helps readers acquire tools that will draw them closer to Christ, to the Scriptures, and to each other.

    This review was written for The Family of Jesus.
    The Family of Jesus by Karen Kingsbury is a unique book. I have not read much from Karen Kingsbury (gasp! I know! My mom and several of my friends have read her works, but for some reason, they usually don't hold my interest), but what I have read from her is contemporary works, so to read a biblical fiction/Bible study was interesting. Ms. Kingsbury wove in fictional details about Biblical characters lives with the intent of making Bible study and characters more interesting and relatable to us. This was tastefully and creatively done, and I think it is a neat idea. This would be a great conversation starter in a book club, or a neat study for a Sunday school group. There are correlating study guides and DVDs that can be purchased in addition to the book also.



    Thank you so much to Net Galley and Howard Books publishers for providing me with an electronic copy of this book to read and review. All opinions are my own and were not required to be positive, nor were they affected by anything other than the book itself. I was not compensated beyond receiving the book itself.

    This was a very good book. I enjoyed it very much. It gave a different possible perspective to the family members of Jesus. It was easy to read and though it was from the perspective of the author it made the people come alive for me.

    This review was written for The Family of Jesus.
    I don't know what I was expecting when I purchased this book but I can definitely tell you what I got. I got a heartwarming and sometimes wrenching story that took the Bible off the black and white pages and brought it to life. I cried in every story. My heart broke along with Mary as she's watching Jesus being crucified on the cross. I smiled as Joseph brought Mary orchids. I felt John the Baptist's doubts as he's in prison wondering "what is God's plan?". I can go on and on. You can tell Karen put a lot of thought and prayer into this book and was exceptionally careful not to taint the facts but to enhance the story and characters with fictional details. I will definitely be sharing this book with my friends! It is also a great way to share the life of Jesus and witness to someone.

    I would highly recommend this book to a new Christian. I think the new Christian would learn so much from this book and definitely get the feeling of things as they truly happen. for a new Christian or a non Christian I give this five stars .
