Face to Face


Set in the tumultuous world during Jesus' earthly life, here is a timeless story of suffering, longing, and healing. Conflicts arise between a young woman's devotion to God and the demon that holds her captive; between her attempts to free herself and the judgment and condemnation of others; between the rabbi named Jesus and the legalistic religious leaders; between the daily reality of Roman oppression and the Jewish hopes of a Deliverer-Messiah.
A vivid imagining of the account in Luke 13:10-17, where Jesus calls the bent-over woman to himself.

What a fun blog (gets me in the Christmas spirit) you have and you share many interesting tidbits with your readers, especially for young mothers.

Thanks for posting about my biblical novel, Face to Face. The main character, "Joakima" is portrayed as a young mother with many of the same interests, challenges, hopes and dreams.

Blessings to you,
Catherine Lawton
