Description

Twenty-four years before Jesus’s birth, a wealthy man, with thousands of sheep and goats and hundreds of workers, proves instrumental in helping King Herod the Great keep his country in order during a devastating ten-year drought. The king is now indebted to this man for his counsel and financial loans—and he hates him for it. What no one knows is that this prosperous man will become the grandfather of God in the flesh—Jesus Christ. This first installment of a three-book series organically weaves well-known, biblical biographies with a careful, passionate, and studied hand. These characters’ narratives unfold toward a revelatory conclusion as though tracing the very lines of God’s plan for their lives and for salvation. Discover Mary’s service in the temple and her experience with a real-life miracle. Experience Joseph’s rise to influence over the construction of a new temple. And live the moments that lead them to the miraculous birth of their son, Jesus. This story of Christ comes to life like never before through personal relationships between family members, friends, leaders, and outlaws—all with a focus on core human wants and needs that every one of us feels, even today.show more
