    1. Where do I begin? First off, not being a follower of Catholic theology, I naturally differed in the interpretations given. The author tried too hard to make Jesus' family be the source of several biblical parables. Aside from Mary and Joseph, His family are kind of whiney losers. Jesus came off as a really nice guy, but not the literal Son of God. She takes away from His divinity. Also, Jesus is portrayed as almost scornful of the Mosaic Law which I don't picture really happening. My biggest iss [...]

    2. Three From Galilee well-depicts the unrecorded childhood of Jesus Christ, including the believable, multifaceted aspects of what is in an adolescent’s life today. It has an intriguing prompt of expressing Jesus’s ‘missing years’ in the Bible, and the author has a unique way of interpreting what had happened throughout this time. At the beginning of the book (entitled “Boyhood”), it shows Jesus as a toddler and as a pre-teenager, and the second half portrays Him as a young man (“You [...]

    3. I should probably start out by saying that this is a very high three stars. There were a lot of things this book did right. The writing was vivid and beautiful in places, and like all books that seek to humanize Jesus, this one captured my heart and my attention with the possibility of who this iconic person really was. This book covers Jesus' childhood, which, as we all know, is barely mentioned in Scripture, so there's a lot of room for artistic license. And with the license that Marjorie Holm [...]

    4. 3.5 stars. I have recently read several historic fiction books with settings and characters from the New Testament. I liked this best - I think the writing is less old-fashioned. Mostly I read it as a fantasy with characters whose names matched up with members of Jesus' family. That way, any anachronisms were less annoying. And I could skip over the theological differences.The author included inspiration from some of the well known parables, and based some incidents in the book on them, letting [...]

    5. A historical fiction about Jesus as a child and the early part of manhood, ending just after he's been tempted in the desert and sets out to find his first disciple.I've never really been able to grasp the idea of Jesus. Of course, I understood that he was the sacrificial lamb, dying for my sins. I got that part. But I could never picture any human living without sin. Any sin. It's beyond comprehension. But this story helped me to imagine it. To see Jesus for the man he was. To understand his lo [...]

    6. I first read this when I was in high school, I think, or at least the early years of college -- I had certainly very recently become a Christian at the time. I remember thoroughly enjoying Holmes's three books.It's interesting to go back and read this now, a little under 20 years later. While still clearly fiction and a good, quick read, it falls short for me. It is just too romanticized, and very clearly based on a literal reading of the gospels (this can be seen even though this novel is based [...]

    7. I wouldn't say that I agreed with everything in this book. Nor can I say that I devoured it with the rate I would have if it would have been about someone that wasn't real and not of Someone who is real and whose life I have read lots about.I will say that it was neat because it helped me to see Jesus life before His time had come to teach and heal in the world. It shows Him as being a human, which He was. It shows His trials as a real man, helping me know that He truly suffered like each of us [...]

    8. This book was an amazing continuation of the original "Two From Galilee". You can't read one without reading the other to get the full story, so don't expect to read only one of them. I read these when they first came out, and since then have moved many times and lost my copies. But I'm seriously considering buying another copy of each to reread them with my daughter. Great story that brings the story of Jesus to life in our imaginations. It also gives us details on what life was like when Jesus [...]

    9. I enjoyed her writing, but since we know nothing of Jesus' life from 12 -30, I couldn't get past the idea that it was only her interpretation of what happened. I especially couldn't believe that he would fall madly in love in 3 short days and that he knew so little about his mission here on earth. His encounter with Satan at the end did help me visualize the possibility of what might have happened then. I read Two from Galilee many years ago, but with that book we had more facts to base the stor [...]

    10. While I lovelove, Two from Galilee, the love story of Mary and Joseph, Three left me feeling a little apostate and full of speculation. The author obviously does not claim to know anymore about the life of Christ than any of the rest of us but I felt like she used more liberties than she should have. I liked the daily life kind of pictures it painted but as for the rest it was a little off. I'll stick to the love story.

    11. This is one of my very very favorite books. It is a fictional novel based on the old testament account of the birth of Christ. It mostly focuses on the story of Mary and Joseph, which makes it a great love story that is a definate must read for December. It is sure to get you into the Christmas mood!

    12. I only read the first few pages of this book because in the first few pages I found that I really didn't like it. It makes Marys mother Hannah delusional and her family disfunctional and I just didn't like it.

    13. Another wonderful novel about how Jesus' life might have been. She begins when the little family returns from exile and goes until He starts his ministry.Read this book again in January 2017. Truly enjoyed it.

    14. I actually stopped reading this book, and I didn't finish it. Not to say that I won't finish it, but it's not on my list right now. It's very slow, and the print is small and the pages are small and yellowed in the copy I have. It's just not pulling me in right now.

    15. This was also a very fun read giving you a glimpse (albeit fictional) into what life may have been like for a young Jesus. Showing that he had a grandpa and a life before he began his ministry. I love this book.

    17. It's historical fiction about the life of Jesus Christ before his ministry. It was interesting to read one authors' take on the life of the Savior and his very normal yet extraordinary existence.

    18. About Jesus and his parents. I almost fell asleep several times.

    19. This is a novel of Jesus and his family. I really enjoyed reading what life could have been like for him as a child growing up and also picturing how his earthly family was.

    20. Although fictional, it causes one to wonder what Christ's growing up life was like.

    21. this story takes place after Jesus is born and is told from the teenage Jesus's perspective. Marjorie Holmes gives an interesting twist to how He grew up. great read!

    22. Nice story to give a great flavor of the world in which Jesus grew up. I like the flavor given to Mary especially.

    23. It was interesting to think about possibly Christ's life could have been like since we really have no ideas about the day-to day minutiae.

    24. Just as solid as the first book, Two From Galilee.

    25. I liked this book, but there were some things about Jesus growing up that I don't imagine as having happened that way.
