From the bestselling author of Women of the Old Testament and Mary, Martha, and Me comes a fresh look into the life of perhaps the most famous mother in history: Mary, the mother of Jesus. The details of Mary's life remain largely unknown. What was daily life like for a young woman in first-century Galilee? What of Mary's other children? What happened to Mary after the crucifixion and resurrection of Christ? Mary's story and mission reveals a woman whose life took an unexpected path, a woman who learned to balance the daily demands and hardship of life with her unique role as the mother of the Savior of the world. But we also discover a woman of great courage and faith, one who was willing to do whatever God asked of her. Richly illustrated and beautifully designed, Mary, the Mother of Jesus provides an illuminating view of a woman whose example of devotion and sacrifice still resonates with those who likewise love the Lord and desire to serve Him.
