Item description for The Mark of the Maker by Tom Hegg & Warren Hanson...
Overview Hegg tells the biblical story of Joseph as the apprentice carpenter. The lessons from his father are not understood at first. It's only as Joseph matures, learns his craft and is then given the remarkable experience of becoming the earthly father of Jesus, that the lessons finally make sense. As Joseph gazes at the manger that holds the Christ child, it all becomes clear. The Mark of the Maker is an inspirational version of Joseph's story. The sepia illustrations are beautiful and add an important dimension.

Armchair Interviews says: The Mark of the Maker is a wonderful gift book for any time of the year. But with the Christmas season approaching, it is a poignant reminder of what came before Jesus' birth.
A Must Mar 17, 2006
This is a fantastic story of the manner in which Mary and Joseph grew up and met, an account that we don't hear very often. I highly recommend it as an important part of the Christmas Story.
Life's lesson Dec 14, 2000
Mr Hegg has obviously had differences with his own father sometime in the past. He has imagined a story about a young man's dilemma's growing up and tied it in beautifully with the Christmas story. Every American male should read this book or have it read to him. Then take 2 or 3 days to think it over and see if he can relate. It can remove any doubts about his own worth and about the worth of doing a job right. Maybe I'm reading too much into a juvenile story but I got the message that there's a deeper mature meaning to the last passage in the book. And Tom had the astuteness to leave it open to the readers interpretation. I absolutely loved the book.
A joyful celebration of a father's love... Nov 10, 1998
This beautiful version of the Christmas story is lovingly told from Joseph's perspective. It allows you to begin to understand the terrible fear and apprehension he must have felt knowing that Mary, the woman he loved, was pregnant by the grace of God. It also explores the father/child relationship on several levels. This book is filled with grace, love, and genuine heart. Enjoy the peace that it can bring to your world...
