Review: Heaven In Her Arms by Catherine Hickem



Heaven in Her Arms: Why God Chose Mary to Raise His Son and What It Means for You by Catherine Hickem is an AMAZING book.  This one really makes you stop and think.  Written in an enjoyable and thought provoking style, Heaven in Her Arms brings to the reader a look at Mary and God that most never consider.

Heaven in Her Arms takes a look at Mary as the untouched virgin, God's choice in a Mother for his son.  It shows Mary as mother to Jesus.  Mary - there the day Jesus was born, there the day he was crucified - from first to last breath.  Mary is the Mother we all wish to be.

As a Mother, I found this book touching, bringing tears both for Mary as a Mother watching her son grow, knowing his life would be short but that he'd been brought to save the world.  What an AMAZING gift to give the World!  I can only imagine the joy and pain she felt in raising this man but this book definitely helps to bring that image to life!

This isn't just a book on Mary's gift but a book that leads as a guide to Mother's everywhere.  A six-week Bible study is provided inside the book to be used for personal use or in group studies.  Heaven in Her Arms provides an experience like none that I've personally known before.

Heaven in Her Arms is a Thomas Nelson book and is priced at $15.99.  This book would make an amazing Christmas gift for Mothers of any age, as well as Christians everywhere.  It's definitely one of my favorite books.
