Description

"A Mary like Me" unites twenty-first-century women with first-century saints by exploring the hearts of some of the most famous women of the Bible. One gave birth to the Son of God, another sat at his feet, and another was the first to proclaim his resurrection. These women shared the name Mary, which means bitter, defiant, and rebellious; and a closer look at Scripture reveals their personalities in light of their name. "A Mary like Me" uncovers the fear, doubt, bitterness, and faithlessness the biblical women fought, just as we do. In Jesus's presence, their weaknesses became strengths and their flaws were redeemed . . . just like ours. The reader discovers camaraderie in the imperfections of the Marys.

Advance Praise

“Andy’s words often left me breathless. There were times when I had to stop reading, close my eyes, and allow the truth of what she’d written to wash over me. I recall often having to journal my thoughts. Her words will affect you . . . but her heart will stay with you for a long, long time.”

— Eva Marie Everson, author of many books, including Reflections of God’s Holy Land; A Personal Journey Through Israel (Thomas Nelson). Christy Award nominee.
