Accessible For All
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.
