Book Review: The Family of Jesus

The Family of Jesus
Karen Kingsbury
Copyright 2014

The Family of Jesus gives us a fictionalized account of Jesus's family.  We see Joseph as a loving protective Stepfather who does everything he can to help Jesus while he is alive.

We are introduced to Zechariah who was Jesus's uncle and the Father of his Cousin John the Baptist, and we get a brirf glimpse into the life of Jesus's bcousin John the Baptist who would later Baptize Jesus and eventually be beheaded.  We learn about Jesus's Aunt Elizabeth JJohn's Mother and get a glimpse of what she went through when her Son was imprisoned for his faith.  I like how this book takes us back to the lives of his doubting brother James and his devoted Mother Marry.

Being a fan of both Karen Kingsbury and Biblical Fiction I found this book to be a great read.  I also loved how Kingsbury incorporated a Bible Study into this wonderful work of fiction.

Five out of Five Stars.

Happy Reading
