Ill admit, I didnt think Id like this book before I started it. I figured, I already knew the story of Mary and Joseph, so how interesting could this be? But one thing the book did really well was make them into real people and the more I read, the more involved I got.I really liked their different views of God. Joseph viewed God as this big God with more important things to do than listen to the prayers of one poor carpenter. But Mary saw God in everything, thinking that if hes a part of all those small moments, liking blessing their meals, he must be a part of her life too.

I liked the contrast.The story also incorporated the expectations of the people. They expected the Messiah to be a conqueror who would defeat Herod and redeem the Jews, leading the fight against their enemies. They wanted a king with a crown and an army, not a fisher of men.

When you see that build-up, its easier to understand why they crucified him. He challenged everything they believed and they didnt like it.The only thing that threw me off about the book was the seemingly random POV switches that often happened mid-paragraph. Sometimes it took a bit to realize whose head I was in. But once I got used to that, I really enjoyed it. Particularly Josephs POV. I think, hes a character thats often overlooked, since Marys the one who gave birth to Jesus. But Joseph is the man who raised him and he went through an awful lot with them.
