Very Good. 9781933794396. 25 oz.; 322 pages; PB owners gift inscription o/w very nice clean/tight condition. When she is chosen to bear the Messiah who will be the next King of Israel, teenage Mary knows that she has found favor with God. But things go wrong in ways she can never imagine. The story of the mother of Jesus of Nazareth is the story of a woman of first century Palestine, a wife, and a mother, who though two thousand years removed has so much in common with women of today. It is the relationship of a mother and son so much like a mother and son today. In the story, Mary manages to avoid an arranged marriage, survive a desert escape from the evil King Herod, raise seven children, endure the loss of her husband, and keep her energetic family together as a single parent. But when Jesus challenges the status quo and angers the religious and political authorities, she begins to lose control. She struggles to bring her sons under control. Then when Jesus is arrested during the Passover festival, her dangerous and frantic nighttime race to save him begins.
