I was attracted to this book because I love Madeleine L’Engel's writing. I need to make more of an effort to read more of her writing.

This book was about- Madeleine intertwines her personal life story and journey to faith with the story of the Incarnation of Jesus through his death. 


Things I liked about this book - I’m so intrigued how we, Madeleine and me,  had so many of the same questions at the same times in our lives, though we were separated by generations and geographic. It is even more intriguing when I consider how much her writing in A WRINKLE IN TIME impacted me when I was eleven. 


Why you should read this book - This is beautifully written book of the story to redemption for one person and the telling of the life of Jesus accurately, but in a way which brings new insight to His story. If you are a Christian writer, Madeleine pens many words of wisdom you will cherish.


This book lived up to the back cover copy The back cover provides a wonderful quote from the book to draw you to the pages. There is also a short paragraph  describing the contents
