Mary, Chosen of God by Diana Wallis Taylor

About the Book
Goodreads | Amazon
"Blessed are you, Mary, chosen of God." 

Mary is ordinary girl from Nazareth. She helps her mother with household chores, she daydreams about a handsome carpenter's son named Joseph, and at night she lies on the roof and contemplates at the stars. But one evening, a heavenly visitor comes with unexpected newsand her life is changed forever. 

Experience the life of the Messiah from the perspective of his mother, who must place her trust and obedience in Adonai, the Most High, as he fulfills centuries of anticipation in the middle of her daily life. Walk with Mary as she witnesses Yeshua grow, mature, minister, and even crucifiedand then raised again, to the kindling of her new faith.

Diana Wallis Taylor’s Mary, Chosen of God offers readers of biblical fiction a fascinating look into the life of Mary, mother of Jesus. While Mary is a well-known, well-loved, and well-discussed biblical figure, Taylor still brings a fresh perspective to her experiences and incredible faith. This beautiful story gripped me emotionally and I really enjoyed reading it. Without hesitation, I recommend it to readers who like reading fictionalized accounts of familiar characters - it’s worth a read. 

Thanks to Celebrate Lit, I received a copy of Mary, Chosen of God and the opportunity to provide an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review, and all the opinions I have expressed are my own.
