When an angel tells her that she is favored because Adonai is with her, Miryam isn't sure she wants such a favor. All the people in the Tanakh who had known Adonai's presence had also known severe suffering as they brought deliverance to his people. As Miryam accepts Adonai's mission to bear the Messiah in the face of her own fears and misgivings, she learns for herself greater joys and suffering than even she had imagined. But she also begins to see the deliverance--not just of her people, but of the entire world.

About the Author

Hailing from a mono-cultural family with a cross-cultural focus, Jennifer A. G. Layte has loved travel and interacting with other cultures from a very early age. As the daughter of pastor/missionaries, she spent six of her earliest years in Honduras, although her own cultural transition there was rather unsuccessful. In college, she traveled to India for five weeks, where she worked mainly with children. After paying off education-incurred debts by working as a nanny in Connecticut, she moved to London, England, to work with refugees and other migrants in the East End. The author's multicultural and biblical background heavily influence her fiction writing. Her themes revolve around finding meaning through physical, spiritual or philosophical displacement.

Now a pastor, spiritual director, and founder of the Pilgrimage, an online spiritual formation community, Rev. Layte provides spiritual mentoring, formation, and direction for any seeking to deepen their relationship with God-or encountering God for the first time-facilitating movement toward wholeness in Christ and participation in local churches.
A writer, teacher, and spiritual caregiver at heart, she loves team building, introducing people to Jesus, and teaching things she is also learning. A lot of that happens via the written word, as in the book you've just read.
