Nov 13, Mary rated it liked it Shelves: small-group , real-book. Hamilton certainly made me think and think differently about the stories of Jesus' birth and life I've been reading forever.
I have a real appreciation now for Joseph - a guy who didn't even get a speaking part - and the role he played. I especially appreciated Hamilton's history lessons about the marriage customs, Roman census, and geography of ancient Israel.
Dec 22, Angela rated it it was ok. The man reading the audiobook had such a soothing, lovely voice and intonation, I loved listening to it. I wanted this to be more about research and historical info, and less like a modern sermon where the pastor was always looking for tenuous modern applications of everything.

You don't hear much about Joseph in the Bible and this book gives us a different insight as to how he may have felt raising a child that wasn't his. Was he a young man or was he much older than Mary? Who were Jesus's brother's and sister's? This is a fast read book and now I have the DVD to watch.

James says, borrowing from Psalm and from the book of Proverbs chapter 3, that God rejects the proud and gives grace to — whom?
