Publisher's Summary

Disciple Matthew, a former tax collector, is invited to work with Peter, James, and John in Jerusalem. He dreams of preaching and performing miracles like his fellow apostles, but he finds his dreams postponed because of a request from Yeshua's mother. Well aware of the passing years, Mary asks Matthew to help her record the stories of Yeshua while the eyewitnesses are still alive. Reluctantly, he agrees, though the longer he and Mary work together, the more difficult their task becomes. Not only are they pressured by opposition from friends and foes alike, but Gaius Caesar, better known as Caligula, is determined to raise a statue of himself in the Holy Temple, even if it means killing every man in Israel. 

As Matthew works to save his people, Mary encourages him to come to terms with issues from his past. When they finally near the completion of their project, Matthew realizes that the job he reluctantly accepted might be his God-given destiny.

thank you

I loved this book! What a awesome gift to be able to hear of the life of the Mother of Jesus. I am so happy that writers are able to entertain us while reminding us of the everyday lives of people of faith. During these end times we must live and share the 'Good news of Salvation '. May our Lord bless and keep you.

Strolling Through Scripture

I LOVED THIS BOOK!!!!
The story takes you into the lives of the early church giving you a glimpse of their experience. I enjoyed the way the book introduces the idea of how the New Testament came to be. The book also reminds you of God's love, what we gain through the cross and how excellently and intentionally the Holy Spileads and guides.

Amazing!

Plausible biblical fiction at its finest... a beautiful way to tell how the book of Matthew may have come about. :)
