BIBLICAL CHARACTERS COME ALIVE!
on 1 July 2014
The Family of Jesus by America’s favorite inspirational storyteller Karen Kingsbury is a fictional account of the lives of six of the closest earthly family members of Jesus which will make you laugh and cry, as you connect more deeply to the Bible. Written in her trademark heart-tugging style, the book will renew the reader’s interest in Biblical characters and pave the way for a deeper understanding of God’s Word.
The book brings the following biblical characters to life:
-Joseph – The Protective Father
-Zechariah – The Knowing Uncle
-John the Baptist – The Chosen Cousin
-Elizabeth – The Faithful Aunt
-James – The Doubting Brother
-Mary – The Loving Mother
In the book Karen Kingsbury has painted a sweeping portrait of each of her characters in such a way that it pulls one’s mind to the scene, enabling us to picture it as the story narrated unfolds. Karen’s vivid imagination coupled with her writing skills pulls one along as the characters come alive right before your eyes through the pages of the book. And as Karen writes: So sit back and let the sights and sounds and wonder of the family of Jesus fill your heart.
