Heaven in Her Arms by Catherine Hickem

Heaven in Her Arms by Catherine Hickem offers a reflection on Mary's story and offers practical applications from the Bible for the contemporary woman.  This story offers Ms Hickem's views on the Virgin Mary and why she was chosen by God to carry His son and raise him with the help of Joseph.  She says that God chose her for her heart and her steadfast faithfulness.  She also offers a 6 week Bible study for groups or individuals wishing to study the book in a more in-depth manner.  This book takes the reader from Jesus birth through His resurrection.  This book remains true to the scriptures yet offering Ms Hickems views on the story.
I thought this book was a good book but it could have been so much more.  I agree with Ms Hickem that not many books are written on women in the Bible let alone Mary's Jesus' mother.  I just think that a woman who has spent her lifetime thinking and studying the life of Mary could have made the book much deeper and provided more information.  I think that any woman wishing to study the life of Mary would like this book but I feel that Ms Hickem could have done so much more with this subject.
I received this book from Booksneeze for this review.
