Online PR News – 26-February-2014 – Canton, Ohio – The majority of Christians know the life, times and ministry of Jesus from the gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John.

Just in time for the Easter celebration, a new book titled â€śThe Gospel According to Mary, Mother of Jesusâ€ť by Donald W. Bartow, is now available.

A wonderful Library Journal review brings to light two exceptional reasons to read â€śThe Gospel According to Mary, Mother of Jesusâ€ť: â€śBartowâ€¦does an excellent job of humanizing Mary and making her story resonate with any woman who has had to stand strong in faith for the sake of her children.

Although fiction, it is often the case that a well-researched and presented historical novel imparts more truths than a non-fiction book which may have inaccuracies due to either author bias or shoddy research.
â€śThis scripturally sound, culturally sensitive, and compellingly practical book brings religion to the forefront for many who would never read the Bible,â€ť Bartow says. â€śWritten in ordinary language, adults will find it refreshingly different and youth will find it inspirational and entertaining. It is indeed a timeless story with a timely message of powerful biblical teachingsâ€ť
â€śThe Gospel According to Mary, Mother of Jesusâ€ť is as easy to read as an entertaining suspense novel, while at the same time as informative as a textbook. Creatively it presents the essence of the Gospel of faith, hope, and love. This engaging and insightful work â€“ intended for young, old, believers, and unbeliever â€“ flows tenderly from the heart of the aged mother of Jesus.
Spiritually poignant, Maryâ€™s entire gospel possesses a very touching human quality. Reading and studying Maryâ€™s Gospel will deepen ones faith, and greatly increase the readerâ€™s desire to study the Bible, especially the Gospels.
