Publisher's Summary

Based on the major motion picture, The Nativity Story is the very human, very dramatic, and uniquely inspiring saga of a journey of faith. Best-selling author Angie Hunt, who most recently wrote Magdalene, a historical fiction novel of the story of Mary Magdalene that was tied to The Da Vinci Code movie, now focuses on Mary, the mother of Jesus. She has adapted the screenplay for The Nativity Story into a powerful, historical novel. Her moving novelization tells the extraordinary tale of two common people, Mary and Joseph, a miraculous pregnancy, an arduous journey, and the history-defining birth of Jesus. Brought to life with an unprecedented attention to detail and commitment to historical accuracy, Hunt tells how, from humble beginnings, great things can come.


What the Critics Say

Could have listened to the movie sound track

It was like listening to the movie sound track. I expected additional information as is usual when a book is made into a movie. Not so with this audio.
The narrator was disappointing. She has a sweet voice but all voices were almost identical. I guess I have been spoiled by excellent narrators.
