Item description for The Nativity Story: Contemplating Mary's Journeys of Faith by Rose Pacatte...
Overview Although she is the Mother of God, Mary was a woman who experienced the full range of human emotions: amazement and confusion, fear and exhaustion, tenderness and wonder, tranquility and joy. In this inspiring book, contemporary women ponder Mary's journeys-both spiritual and physical-and contemplate her growth as a person, a woman, a wife, a mother, a child of God. Each of these authors has made a journey of faith that has been enriched or guided by Mary's example, and they show us how-through our roles and women and men, daughters and sons, wives and husbands, mothers and fathers, sisters and brothers, professionals and religious-we can find in Mary both a role model and source of insight and encouragement for our own "journeys of faith." Includes photos from the movie.

Insightful... Nov 28, 2006
Each chapter opens with a Nativity Scripture and scene from the movie, and is followed by thoughtful questions to ponder in response to the journey about which the viewer has read. Each chapter is short enough for a quick read, perhaps as a daily devotional, and encourages each reader to consider Mary in a number of aspects and how we as humans today can also identify with her. This book is an insightful compilation book to read, particularly during the Advent season.
