SHADOW OF DEATH BY Katheryn Maddox Haddad
Welcome back Katheryn Maddox Haddad again as she spotlights her series, They Met Jesus.
Have you been condemned for standing by someone who is being ridiculed? Governor Pilate stood by Jesus against the priests and tried to free him.
How can you bring an innocent bystander to Jesus? Simon the Cyrene happened to see church with his cross and was pressed into service.
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be beaten nearly to death, then suspended by nails for half a day? Read “Crucifixion I ~ the Substitute” and you will never be the same again.
Some believe Jesus faced down Satan, then escaped from hell to do the impossible for us. Read what it might have been like.
Would you like to convert a prisoner? Jesus converted one of the thieves being crucified with him.
Have you hidden your faith to save your job? Joseph of Arimathea did, then got the courage to declare it openly.
Do you know someone who lies about Christianity? The guards who witnessed Jesus’ resurrection from death did.
Can you gather friends around you in the middle of the night to worship? The five wealthy women who helped Jesus did.
Have you denied Jesus in public? Peter did.
Do you tell everyone who will listen that Jesus overcame death for us? James the Less and Alphaeus did.
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.
