Do not judge this book based solely on the rating I assigned to it as I do recommend this book. This is a very good book; however, the three stars were given because the book is short in length and is not a book a serious scholar would probably add to his or her theological library. The book is only one hundred pages in length with a great deal of 'white space' on each page. However, it is well written with excellent introductory information. It is designed for mass, personal consumption rather than for theological students or researchers seeking another ponderous, scholarly tome. If you are searching for only one book on Mary, Jesus' birth, and the Infancy Gospel of James; and you are willing to spend approximately sixteen dollars (not including shipping and handling) for a one hundred page, small-size book, then this one is for you. (Note: This book would make an excellent gift for anyone with a personal curiosity in spiritual or theological history.) Personally, I enjoyed the book's brevity, well-written style, and overall presentation, so I happily add it to my own library. However, if you are in need of heavy theological analyses; source, form or redaction criticisms; or detailed research results, this is not the book for you.Was this review helpful?
