More About Francine Rivers

Francine Rivers Francine Rivers began her literary career at the University of Nevada, Reno, where she graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in English and Journalism. From 1976 to 1985, she had a successful writing career in the general market and her books were awarded or nominated for numerous awards and prizes. Although raised in a religious home, Francine did not truly encounter Christ until later in life, when she was already a wife, mother of three, and an established romance novelist. Shortly after becoming a born-again Christian in 1986, Francine wrote Redeeming Love as her statement of faith. First published by Bantam Books, and then re-released by Multnomah Publishers in the mid- 1990s, this retelling of the biblical story of Gomer and Hosea set during the time of the California Gold Rush is now considered a classic work of Christian fiction and continues to be one of the Christian Booksellers Association’s top-selling titles; it has held a spot on the Christian bestseller list for nearly a decade.

Since Redeeming Love, Francine has published more than 20 novels with Christian themes - all bestsellers- and she has continued to win both industry acclaim and reader loyalty around the globe. Her Christian novels have been awarded or nominated for numerous awards including the RITA Award, the Christy Award, the ECPA Gold Medallion, and the Holt Medallion in Honor of Outstanding Literary Talent. In 1997, after winning her third RITA award for Inspirational Fiction, Francine was inducted into the Romance Writers’ of America Hall of Fame. In 2007, the feature-length film version of her novel The Last Sin Eater was released in theaters by Fox Faith. In March 2010, Francine officially became a New York Times bestselling author, when Her Mother’s Hope debuted at #12 on the hardcover fiction bestsellers lists. The sequel, Her Daughter’s Dream, debuted at #12 on the same list just 6 months later, in September, 2010. Francine’s novels have been translated into over twenty different languages and she enjoys best-seller status in many foreign countries including Germany, The Netherlands, and South Africa.

Francine and her husband Rick live in Northern California and enjoy the time spent with their three grown children and every opportunity to spoil their five grandchildren. She uses her writing to draw closer to the Lord, and that through her work she might worship and praise Jesus for all He has done and is doing in her life.

Francine Rivers currently resides in the state of California. Francine Rivers was born in 1947.

Reviews - What do customers think about Unafraid: Mary (The Lineage of Grace Series #5)?

As a Mother...  Oct 13, 2008
I have read 2 of this series of novellas by Francine Rivers. Both this one and about Bathsheba. Both I think have expressed thoroughly a woman's perspective. I wept reading this book. As a Mother, it is impossible for me to imagine witnessing the events surrounding Christ and His crucifixion. Francine made this real for me. As far as being a "Catholic/Non-Catholic" version of Mary? Do Catholics have more information than the rest of the religions on Mary's character? Keep in mind it's a fictional book based on a real event. None of us were there. She put the "female" spin on it because that's what the series is about. I'll read the rest of the series. So much of the Bible left out the woman's perspective. Be blessed we have that freedom now.
Disappointing  Aug 22, 2008
I read the entire Lineage of Grace series and was thrilled with the other books, but this one was disappointing. I am a protestant and do not believe that Mary was sinless, but Francine Rivers made Mary out to be a complaining, and pushy mother. It is interesting that the author did not dwell on the sins of the other women in the series, eventhough we know that they were sinners. But, she chose to dwell on Mary's sins. I believe she was trying to make a point, which I agree with, but she took it too far.
Disgusting.  Jun 17, 2008
I'm surprised this book has so many positive reviews!

This is a good book about Joseph, Mary's husband. The picture Francine Rivers paints of Mary the mother of Jesus is nothing short of bitter and dishonest-- not Scriptural at all (one of the greatest scenes of the Bible with Mary-- her visit to Elizabeth where Mary sings, "My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior..." is LEFT out!). It's a gross oversight that gives away Ms. Rivers' struggles with the person of Mary... it seems like she tries to make her Mary "less Catholic" by making her into a terrible person. I can understand that Ms. Rivers wants to make Mary 'more human' to her readers... but Ms. Rivers forgets that sin makes us LESS human, not moreso. Adam and Eve were more themselves in the Garden of Eden than after they were cast out.

Even though this is a work of fiction, I still think that, at best, it's a dishonest account of the mother of Jesus--an attempt to erase the picture the Catholic Church has painted instead of an honest openness about Mary's life as revealed in segments of Scripture and early Christian writings.

I was highly disappointed. It was a struggle to even finish the book.
Shameful  Jun 4, 2008
This book is a shameful end to an otherwise wonderful series of women in the lineage of Christ. It is poorly researched, and extremely disrespectful of the Mother of God. Think about it - Mary is the vessel through which God was made man and came to earth. Doesn't it make sense that the vessel would be as perfect as is humanly possibly? I was shocked and offended by this book. What a shame.
Creates a great picture   May 2, 2008
This is a great speculation on what Mary's life might have been like. It sticks to scripture but helps us to see life as it may have been. Very enjoyable and encouraging.
