I am so excited to be asked by my friend Heather and her husband to review The Passion of Mary. This book couldn’t have been released at a better time. During Advent, in addition to our studies with the kids, my husband and I try to read a book together. I was in the midst of picking one when The Passion of Mary was released:).
Here is what Amazon.com says about Andrew Bowen’s ” The Passion of Mary”:
As the world rushes through the holiday season, let’s dare to take a detour.
Travel back 2,000 years and watch as the untold story of Advent unfolds from the point of view of characters including Mary, Joseph, and even the angel Gabriel. In The Passion of Mary, you’ll take a never-before-seen look into how obedience, perseverance, faith, and a mother’s love foreshadow the very Passion of Christ that shook the foundations of history.
Prepare a place and reopen the manger of your heart as you read the story and ponder the 14 daily Advent reflections of The Passion of Mary: An Untold Story of Advent.
I am not sure about you, but I have always wanted to know more about Mary. I have wondered what her and Joseph may have been thinking in the midst of our Lord and Savior being born. In this Biblical fiction account, Andrew Bowen weaves the Biblical account of Mary, Joseph, and Jesus while creating a story of what might have been going on. This book is full of scripture from Matthew and Luke as well.
At the end of each chapter, there is a time of reflection where Andrew goes a bit further with what his thoughts are for that day. Each days reflections are meant to draw us more and more towards Christ.
Right now The Passion of Mary is available for kindle for only .99 cents! That is an amazing price for this wonderful book. Click on any of my amazon links to go straight there and download your copy. Heather and Andrew are also gracious enough to offer one of my readers a copy of this book. This giveaway will be shorter then my normal ones so that you have time to get into the book before Christmas.
