Such a short book yet so powerful. This is truly a classic. A story between Christ and his earthly father Joseph and the unique love and devotion only they shared. Heart warming and touching. Love in the pure form. Remarkable.
Delightful novella. Written by co-author of the Left Behind series. Book is written as two conversations - one being Joseph and his newborn baby, Jesus, as he attempts to comfort a fussy baby at night. The second is Jesus comforting his earthly father on his deathbed. Offers a brief glimpse into the life of Jesus while here on Earth. Recommended reading!
