For prosperous landowner Lazarus, hard work and extensive travel are a means to comfortably support his family, including his two sisters, Mary and Martha. Following a journey to sell his wares, Lazarus stumbles upon an opportunity to assist a stranger in need, delaying his return home. Through Lazarus's selfless act of service, he, Mary, and Martha find themselves standing witness to miracles they never dreamed possible in the presence of a man who will forever change them and those they love—a man called Jesus of Nazareth.
Experience as never before the accounts of those who knew Christ, not only as the Savior of the World but also as a friend.
My ReviewMary and Martha is a beautiful Biblical retelling of two sisters and their brother Lazarus, whom Jesus raised from the dead. This novel lets readers experience what it would have been like to be a friend of Jesus. The siblings each have chapters devoted to their point of view. The author does a wonderful job writing her Biblical stories with authentic descriptions for the people of that time. Things that were told so well were the relationships between the siblings, their individual trials, and awakenings to Jesus and his teachings The readers are shown many of the miracles that Jesus performed during his short ministry. Of course, the one that had me in tears was Jesus raising Lazarus from the dead. Reading of the feelings the sisters possibly went through brought even more meaning to this great miracle.
H.B. Moore is a great researcher that writes believable stories mixing facts and some fiction. Any reader that loves a good story, especially one based on Bible stories, will adore the story of Mary and Martha.
