Stargazer is a first century masterpiece of the life of Mary, mother of Jesus. In retelling the biblical story, we follow Mary from a young girl, through her betrothal to Joseph, the birth of Christ, his childhood, his ministry, and his eventual crucifixion and resurrection. This heartwarming story will help you better understand the biblical story of Mary and the culture she lived in, as well as bring you to a new understanding of the humanity of Christ.
Would you consider the audio edition of Stargazer to be better than the print version?
Usually, I prefer a book I can hold in my hands... but the audio was so inspiring and natural, I'd much prefer to HEAR this story! The narrator's tone and pace perfectly presented this powerful story.
Who was your favorite character and why?
Mary was my favorite character because she became like a best friend. I wept when she did, laughed with her, and rejoiced to see a side of her I'd never imagined. She's just like my mom! I was also pleased that the book, though fictionalized, was Biblically accurate.
What about Misty of Echoing Praise’s performance did you like?
I'm usually not one for audiobooks... but this narrator was AMAZING! She portrayed strength, yet vulnerability. The narration was professional, but profoundly tender. As compared to other books I've heard which are metered and stilted sounding, this audiobook was like sharing a book with a friend. I was truly swept away!
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
I listened to this book while on a long road trip. When I reached my destination... I just couldn't get out of the car; I ended up sitting in the parking lot! I was too engrossed to be able to walk away!
Any additional comments?
I highly recommend this book. At first, I thought it might be cumbersome or boring. I couldn't have been more wrong. This book impacts your life and changes your heart!
