Mary of Bethany is one of my favorite Bible women and I was happy to be offered a review copy of this book. As I went through the book for this review I quickly found that I want to go back and take a longer time period to really dive into the Scripture and study with Ms. Kimball. I recommend it to ladies out there who want to learn from the examples we have in the Bible. It would also make a wonderful group study. I received my review copy from Cross Focused Reviews in exchange for an honest review.

"Memorial: The Mystery of Mary of Bethany" by Dolores Kimball
There are many "Mary's" mentioned in the New Testament. Which one are we talking about here? Mary of Bethany was a quiet woman who loved the Lord. She chose to anoint His feet with precious ointment and was blessed by Him for that act. Judas, always looking at the money angle, thought it should be "sold." But, Mary chose to give it to Jesus in a very humble, emotional way. Mary also chose to sit at Jesus' feet and listen instead of serving, much to her sister's chagrin. That was a teachable moment for Martha. So, you might ask, what does this have to do with me? What is its relevance to my life? In her new book, Dolores Kimball takes us on a journey to discover Mary's secrets. In this Bible study, she gives plenty of Scripture to go along with the story she tells. So come along and gain insights on life choices, listening, silence, worship, and peace.
