“The Day I Met Jesus” by Frank Viola and Mary E. Demuth

Have you ever felt invisible?

Most women have at least sometime in their life.

In this book, are the stories of five women from the Bible,

told as if from their own lips.

These women were treated as invisible,

but found guilty because they did not behave the way others thought they should.

They were judged, criticized, and even ignored.

Five women who met Jesus face to face,

and their lives were changed by it!

Don’t you want to know how?

Don’t you want to know these women?

What I most liked about this book,

 it gives these women a voice.

They are finally heard!

And it is because of Jesus.

Frank Viola and Mary E. DeMuth have done a wonderful job on this book.

Some of the gems of truth I remember from the book –

“It’s hypocritical for sinners to want to harm other sinners…”

“If this Jesus could befriend thieves, would He be my friend too?”

“Being a disciple isn’t about serving or keeping a spiritual to-do list.”

You won’t regret reading this book. 

These women will stay in your thoughts,

 because they met Jesus face to face,

just as we wish we could.

I found this book to be very encouraging,

as well as enlightening about women’s lives in the days when Jesus walked this earth.

        Oh in what way. I’ve always enjoyed reading the stories of women in the bible. I can’t count the amount of times I have read the books of Ruth and Esther!

    • Ally, This book reads from the woman’s voice herself, as if she is telling you her story. It makes the story come alive. The women all met Jesus when they really needed help. The woman at the well, the woman caught in adultery, the woman bleeding for 12 years and 2 others. Mary DeMuth writes as if she is the woman herself, sets up the background and situation for each woman, and then Jesus changes their lives!
