Mary Knew: A Biography Of Mary From Ancient Scriptures by Irene Baron

Accessible For All

Mary Knew: A Biography Of Mary From Ancient Scriptures by Irene Baron is an account of Mary, the mother of Jesus. Irene Baron has used ancient and biblical texts to produce a very personable read.

Mary Knew is not designed to be read instead of the Bible but alongside it. We know very little about the life of Mary but Irene Baron has pulled everything together to produce this fabulous and very approachable account.

Mary becomes a fully rounded 3D character in her own right, showing she is more than just the mother of Jesus. Set apart before she was born, the reader ‘feels’ the anguish, shame and desire experienced by Mary’s parents as they longed for a child. We share their elation when their hopes come true. Mary was a much loved child, dedicated to God and used in a way her parents never imagined.

Irene Baron has produced a, very accessible for all, account of the life of Mary. It is fascinating and I thoroughly enjoyed reading it. I could recommend it for Christians young and old, as well as those exploring the faith and those who just want to know more about the historical figure of Mary.

I received this book for free. A favourable review was not required and all views expressed are my own.
