Since reading this book, which was loaned to me by a friend, I have entertained a different perspective on the human side of Jesus. The book contains an imaginative description of six of the closest family members to Jesus: Joseph (stepdad), Zechariah (uncle), Elizabeth (aunt), John the Baptist (cousin), James (brother), and Mary (mother).
An enjoyable read with both Biblical facts and fictional stories intertwined, it gives the reader an entirely different perspective on Jesus and his relationships with those closest to him.
Each chapter has a study guide that can be used for personal or group Bible study.
