PROMISE KEEPER by Katheryn Maddox Haddad
Welcome today as we feature author Katheryn Maddox Haddad in Book 6 of her series.
Have you felt like an outcast all your life? That’s what Zaccheus and Jesus were.
Do you want to honor someone people are overlooking? That’s what Mary of Bethany did when she anointed Jesus with the oil of coronation.
Would you like to celebrate someone who has become a hero to the downtrodden? The commoners did that for Jesus and created a triumphal entry into Jerusalem.
Do you feel like an outsider at church? Jesus gave the Grecian Jews special attention.
Do you keep the Lord’s Supper every Sunday to honor Jesus’ terrible sacrifice? Jesus took time out of his busy life to suffer and give his life for you when he did not want to.
Is there someone trying to force you to do something wrong to accomplish good? Judas tried to force Jesus’ hand, and it backfired on him.
Are you ashamed because you fear death? Jesus cried with loud cries not to have to go through what he had to do.
Have you run away from something you need to do for Jesus? Jesus apostles did.
Are church leaders declaring you guilty in front of the congregation? The high priests did that to Jesus.
Is a government leader or law condemning your goodness? That’s what Herod
Antipas did to Jesus.
This series of eight novels—THEY MET JESUS—is dedicated to everyone who has ever doubted. It shows people who met Jesus in their stark humanness and curiosity, sometimes loving him, sometimes hating him, but never left the same. I was very careful about adding words of Jesus that are not in the Bible. At the end of each chapter are “Life Application Questions” for individual readers or book clubs, and ancient historical sources such as Josephus. At the end of each book are suggested readings for special occasions. COME, MEET JESUS ALL OVER AGAIN.
Katheryn began writing at age ten, and was “published” that same year in her local newspaper. She grew up in the cold north and now lives in Arizona where she do not have to shovel sunshine. She basks in 100-degree weather along with my palm trees, cacti, and a computer with most of the letters worn off.
With a bachelor’s degree in English, Bible and social science from Harding University and part of a master’s degree in Bible, including Greek, from the Harding Graduate School of Theology, she also has a master’s degree in management and human relations from Abilene University.
Her newspaper column appeared for several years in newspapers in Texas and North Carolina ~ Little Known Facts About the Bible ~ and she has written for numerous Christian publications.
She spends half her day writing, and the other half teaching English over the internet worldwide using the Bible as text book. She is a member of Christian Writers of the West and is also an energetic public speaker.
