Review:

The study of Mary: Devoted to God's Plan is not for the faint of heart. Take this study seriously--embrace the young teenager Mary as your role model--and you have embarked on a journey that requires courage and self-sacrifice and may mean standing alone. An unflinching determination to follow Jesus comes at a price, so proceed at your own risk. But know for certain that when kingdom issues are at stake, holding back will cost you more.
--Carolyn Custis James, founder and president, Synergy Women's Network, Inc.

What a fascinating journey into the life of a girl who faced many of the same problems troubling teenagers today--unplanned pregnancy, fear, and peer pressure. While we'll never experience Mary's exact circumstances, we will have times when God calls us to follow Him into the unknown. In this practical study, Mary's surrendered life offers life-changing inspiration for us all. A great study for churches, small groups, and personal devotions.
--June Hunt, founder and CEO, Hope For The Heart

Mary's story is familiar to most Christians and can inadvertently be limited to a manger scene at Christmas. Yet there is so much more to ponder and learn from her life as you will see in this study. Mary: Devoted to God's Plan is a thorough guide which can be used to delve deeper. It's perfect for personal or group study, or for any pastor who needs great Biblical content for Sunday mornings or mid-week meetings.
--Arlene Pellicane, speaker, author, and blogger

Mary: Devoted to God's Plan is an informative and inspiring study of the life of one of the great servants of God in the New Testament. Filled with interesting and relevant historical information, the study helps the reader explore more deeply Mary's life and her journey from mother of Jesus to child of God and disciple of Christ. The study does a wonderful job of integrating historical information and application to help the reader see how the story of Mary fits in the larger context of Scripture, while also providing valuable guidance for how we can follow her example of devotion and humility.
--Michelle Lee-Barnewall, Associate Professor of Biblical and Theological Studies, BIOLA University
