The Promise - Mary tells the Christmas story from her perspective
November 01, 2014

We are very excited that The Promise is now available in print and on Kindle. Release is today, November 1.

The author is a 16-year-old girl who had been considering Mary's experience each year as her family went through the Nativity story. I discovered the story on her blog, and I was so captivated I offered to buy it so I could publish it.

The story is told from Mary's perspective, and it is both gut-wrenching and thrilling. Megan Cupit brings you into the events of that first Christmas, struggling with the embarrassment of an out-of-wedlock pregnancy, but thrilled with being chosen to carry the baby that would fulfill the promise of God to deliver Israel.

I'm a man, and my eyes nonetheless filled with tears when Elizabeth called Mary "the mother of my Lord." I could feel the relief as Elizabeth verified the words of the angel. The story is all the more moving for those who are, have been, or could be mothers themselves.

"By the time we get to the song of Mary, when it bursts forth, it doesn't feel contrived, but rather the overflow of a bursting heart."--Garry Nation, pastor and lead actor in Polycarp: Destroyer of Gods (to be relased, 2015)

"Megan has faithfully adhered to the Biblical account but manages to draw the reader into those events in a way which the simple facts could not.  I heartily recommend this as a mature work written by a remarkable young woman."--David Parker, pastor

Both the Kindle and print versions are now available for immediate order. The Promise is a perfect small Christmas gift and offers an experience of the first and greatest Christmas gift like no other.

This weekend only, Christian History for Everyman readers can get the print version for 25% off with code 586JKE46 at (processed by CreateSpace, an Amazon company).
