Reviews - What do customers think about 3 A.D.: Mary's Story?
A captivating, and human, look at a religious icon May 2, 2003
I'm not sure what I expected, but what I found was an interesting story of a young woman destined for a life even she couldn't imagine. At the same time, the book takes this woman off of her pedastal and places her firmly in our hearts. Not as someone to be deified, but as someone to identify with and draw comfort from. She faced personal doubts and conflicts and nurtured and raised a family all the while knowing that her oldest son would be taken from her and given to the world.
Even though you know how the basic story is supposed to play out, you will still find it more and more difficult to take a break from reading this book until you finish it.
MARY NOT AS DEMIGOD, BUT ONLY A FRIGHTENED WOMAN Feb 24, 2003
This book shows the human side of Mary, mother of Jesus. Just as Amy Grant's song does. It is a book long overdue and will be welcomed by Christians everywhere.
