emotional connection to the family members of Jesus, learning about
their lives and falling in love with Scripture along the way. Bible
studies and devotionals abound, and in churches everywhere people gather
to seek a deeper understanding of God's word and its application to

and ultimately care more deeply about the Bible by helping you grasp the
truths in Scripture not just with your mind, but with your heart. The

intersperses fictional, emotionally gripping details anchored in
Scripture with historical and theological insights and questions that
will guide soul-searching and reflection.
"The Family of Jesus" not
only provides a deeper understanding of the relatives of our Savior, but
also helps readers acquire tools that will draw them closer to Christ,
to the Scriptures, and to each other.
