"Someone to love me." That's all she wanted—all anyone really wants. We are addicts, “sinaholics,” says the author, trying to fill with various addictions a gaping void in our hearts designed for God. Take Mary Magdalene. She was a prosperous prostitute, but her life was one sad, sordid story—until she met Someone who loved her with a pure, unconditional love. Ever afterward the shame of her past was eclipsed by her absolute devotion to the One who set her free.
Doug Batchelor unveils the beauty of the gospel with original insights through the eyes of Jesus’ most dedicated disciple. This imaginative yet biblical retelling of Mary’s experience clarifies several significant biblical teachings with a kaleidoscope of vivid illustrations. Discover a fresh picture of a gentle, loving Savior who without condemning or condoning our past offers us a new future as we, like Mary, linger at Jesus’ feet.
A refreshing portrait of Christ
A beautifully written book depicting Jesus through the eyes of a woman. The insightful description of the relationship between Mary and Jesus is heart warming. The book helped me to know Jesus on a more personal level. Would highly recommend it to any one.
Hope for all of us
This is a great gift idea
BEST GOSPEL PRESENTATION EVER
Encouraged whole church to get and read, especially chapter three. As a former Roman Catholic, was slightly concerned about alluding to the Veronica story in chapter 5.
so humbling yet educatonal and INTERESTI
I love to read, bu a lot of biblical books are quite difficult to follow, or dry reading, or too scholarly. This is NOT one of them. I found it interesting, informatuve, humbling.....and wanted to read it again as soon asI finished it. A good read.
To the Heart
I have my own personal copy. I like to get others to pass along to people I feel can greatly benifit from reading this Awsome book!
One of Pastor Batchelor's best
I work at ABC and I recommend this book to everyone. God may ask us to do the impossible, but He makes a way that makes the impossible, possible. Every Christian should know how to do Bible Study on their own, not counting on others to feed them, spiritually
One of the best books I've ever read!
This is a great sharing book. It truly shows God's love for us sinners.
The first time I read this, I could not put it down! Found it again, now with studies after each chapter. Loved it so much I recommended it to my church family to share with others. I have bought several copies as my sharing book!
I just finished reading this book. It helped me to see things from the bible that I never knew or understood. Very insightful and Pastor Bachlor totally brings the story to life with his details of what it might have been like! I'm reading it again outloud with my husband starting today.
I received this booklet as a gift at a Women's Ministry weekend. From the moment that I started reading it, I could hardly put it down to continue with my daily duties and looked forward to my next reading. Jesus's forgiveness, His grace, His love, His power of changing a sinners life, gripped me once again. The characters were brought to life, as if they could be living in my town or if I were living in Bethany at the time, it is REAL, the sin-problem is so clearly brought to view but also the glorious solution. It is a perfect gift and one that should be read and shared with at least all your female friends. It can also be used within a small group discussion for teenage girls for development of character. Praise to our Lord and Saviour for this booklet, it is timeless and precious, every woman from age 15 should read it.
