Jesus Author Walter Wangerin JThis man Consider this man who by his power his peace his simple presence and his fierce purity uietly turned the whole world upside down None other could evoke such joy at his astonishing deeds such anger at his strange aloofness such fear when he began to draw the attention of powerful enemiesand such heartbreak when the inevitable came to pass Surrounded by a circle of close relationships his mother and her extended family men and women drawn irresistibly by the light of his personality the authority of his words the power of his deeds and above all by the depth of his love this carpenter from Nazareth moved toward a singular destiny A destiny he would both fear and embrace A destiny that would mark forever the lives of those who followed him Walter Wangerin writes like he speaks I heard him speak at a conference in the late 90’s and thoroughly enjoyed his dramatic poetic flare He swept his audience into the biblical world with his rich deep voice and lyrical prose Breath taking Heart stoppingBut 400 pages of it was a little than I had bargained forI found myself tempted to skip over portions of the book because I knew that portion of the story or I wasn’t interested in the character he was portraying at the moment However as I continued reading I was captured by some outrageously wonderful description or seized with such emotion for Mary that I couldn’t see through my tearsThis book was the first of Wangerin’s work I’ve read from cover to cover I’ve often read his fabulous Book of God to read a chronological retelling of a portion of Scripture No one can write a description in the gritty unspeakable obvious like Walt WangerinHe describes Martha the sister of Mary and Lazarus “Her great neck was so ringed with folds of flesh that they drove the lobes straight out below her ears” Can’t you see a chubby Martha bustling around a house?He describes Jesus deep in thought “something was on his mind some driving conviction which he seemed by the fierce bunching of his jaw muscles the muscles in his temple to be chewing chewing never swallowing”But the most precious—and soul searching—descriptions were of Mary the mother of our Lord Jesus I’ve never before been so moved by the changes she endured as the mother of a miracle and a boy and the Messiah “Mary doesn’t hate the holy mysteries; but they shut her out; and if they are capable of love it is a love too noble and composed to care about white hairs or the flab above a woman’s elbow or the insufficiencies of her soul”Perhaps this book affected me so deeply because a little like Mary I'm discovering the exuisite pain of changing relationships with my children They're growing older becoming less dependent on meand I'm becoming less relevant in their everyday lives They're now the experts on culture and the world in which we live I've become cute and precious When did that happen? ;Jesus A Novel was a good read for me during the Fall season of the year and this season of my life Perhaps it can speak to others during their own changing seasons
