    One thought on “STORIES FROM THE LIFE OF JESUS, BY HIS MOTHER”

    1. when we think of the birth of Jesus, we generally think of a manger scene, all calm and quiet. I imagine, however, were we to look into Mary’s diary, it would be a lot more like this:“I am just exhausted. Coping with a new baby is a stress at the best of times, but you try doing in in a cave with cows and a donkey breathing down your neck.”and“I sent one of the shepherds up the hill to politely thank the angelic host for their serenade, but, ‘Would they mind finishing now, as I had a b [...]

    2. Authors who make a parody of God and Saints are often misunderstood to be disrespectful, or worse, atheists. But I think it is actually completely opposite of that. Some authors love and believe in God so much that they want to put themselves in the shoes of God and Saints. Don’t we all wish to be close to our object of our affection by getting into their head? Such an act is no way disrespectful because love is full of positive feelings including respect, while ‘lust’ is void of respect. [...]

    3. This is a great idea for a story told in a way that readers will understand better than some of the Bible writing. You have to remember that this is a story told with a bit of sarcasm and a more modern attitude about the life of Jesus. I thought the author did an amazing job combining what we know with what wasn't explained before. What would the actual story have been if it was told by a writer from today without all the thees and thou's thrown in? Read the book and see! I think you will enjoy [...]

    4. I thoroughly enjoy comedy and humor. I am no prude. This book wasted an opportunity to give a new lighthearted perspective on Mary's life. It unnecessarily injected vile language and drunken behavior into the mouths of the apostles and the holy family. It even had a scene in which Jesus taught the apostles to sing an extremely vile song. I had hoped to find enjoyment, but mostly found disgust with this book.
