Not A Silent Night - Mary Looks Back to Bethlehem - by Adam Hamilton

Mary Looks Back to Bethlehem
Adam Hamilton
Copyright 2014 by Abingdon Press
ISBN  978-1-426-77184
What a truly wonderful read! I sat and read from cover to cover straight through!
Hamilton takes us on a journey backwards from the Crucifixion to the Birth of Jesus.
Spell binding at times, the author leads us into the feelings Mary, the Immaculate Mother of Christ, must have felt at each stage of Jesus' life. But more importantly, the author allowed me to learn of the ties between those two miraculous events, and how each is to be treasured. How we should think of one when thinking of the other.
A wonderful read for any time of the year! This book is available on in both the hardback and paperback editions, as well as Kindle book.
I give this book...
...Five Stars and...

...a big BIG Thumbs Up!

I found this quite an enjoyable read, being that I perform genealogy research and had to dig up much information on the Old West.
Enss paints a written picture of the events surrounding the deaths and burials of the notorious Old West.
He included photographs of tombstones where available, as well as photographs of the individuals as well, as available.
I read the book in one sitting.
I enjoyed the read immensely in Kindle version, but it is also available in written paperback.
I give this read...

...a big THUMBS UP!
I highly recommend the read.
