Get ready to be into another time and place Paula Parker unfurled a vibrant breathing dusty world of Jewish life and culture normally expounded upon monotonously by many degreed scholars but she did it in such a way that I not only learned a few fascinating Loveland historical nuggets I also truly began to feel the character sopes and fears in a visceral way There I was wanting to Little Tree help in the kitchen or tagging along with the sisters to the marketplace or gasping with indignation at an injustice I could almost taste and smell and feel what it mightave been like to live in that time period in that cultureParker really did Aliran Politik Dan Aidah Dalam Islam her research and it paid off big time The detail with which she describes the native clothing styles the daily routines and the social and religious customs of the Jews of that time period gave me a deeper insight into many significant events of Scripture as well as the character and possible motives of each person involved in the story Each foray into a fictional version of a recorded biblical event was not just merely plausible but was completely believable Events I didn t consciously tie together were connected in such a way that they made so much sense in the flow of the narrative than once I found myself saying Wow or talking to and sometimes fussing at the characters right out loudThe cultural concept of beauty and femininity was so different in the days of Jesus than it is now but the struggle to understand true beauty and embrace who Godas created you to be is a timeless struggle that transcends the centuries In Sisters of Lazarus each sister must wrestle with the perception of beauty they see in their own lives just as many of us do throughout our modern lives until we are either crushed in spirit or until we find unshakeable peaceI Guide de l'employeur culturel highly recommend this wonderful story as an essential addition to your library and even if you are not a fan of biblical fiction I d wager this book will make you one Iad a very Der Heimliche Fürstensohn hard time putting it down Ever since I was a little kid Iave loved stories from antiuity The Iliad and the Odyssey Edith Hamilton s Mythology stories of Romulus and Remus Thor and Loki and the frost giants Athens and Sparta they were my favs I think one of the reasons I loved those tales was they didn t pull any punches Helen and Paris were portrayed as flesh and blood lovers Menelaus was a raging cuckolded Science and Democracy husband Odysseus was a crafty and cunning warrior To my young mind they were realContrast that with the flannel board Bible stories Ieard in Sunday School Noah and the ark were made of felt David might Strength Training for Basketball (Strength Training for Sport) have slain Goliath but I don t remember any blood being spilled Adam and Eve were always strategically placed to cover their unmentionables In short those magnificent tales from the ancient middle east were reduced to two dimensional cardboard cut outs devoid of passion emotion danger or suspense No wonder it was fun to read about the 300 Spartans than the 12 DisciplesPerhaps that is one reason I enjoyed Sister of Lazarus Beauty Unveiled so much Author Paula K Parker took the familiar Biblical characters of Lazarus the man Jesus raised from the dead along withis two sisters Mary and Martha off the flannel board and dressed them in flesh and bone She set them in a real world of sweat and dust and political unrest and religious zeal And she didn t try to preach Instead she simply told a story of what might Megalodon: Fact or Fiction? have beenEven though Lazarus andis sisters are among the most prominent New Testament characters after Jesus and is disciples there really isn t that much detail about their lives recorded in scripture And even though I ave a bachelor s degree in Bible I can t say I m all that familiar with everyday life in Judea during the time of the Caesars That s where Ms Parker s narrative really shines She talks about the marketplace the daily routine the customs and
