A boxed set of two popular books (Women Who Knew the Mortal Messiah and Men Who Knew the Mortal Messiah) combined into one volume for the first time. Twenty-five stories, presented in chronological order, show Christ’s life and earthly ministry as seen through their eyes.
Would a glimpse into Christ's eyes change your life forever?
Women & Men Who Knew the Mortal Messiah shares stories of twenty-four New Testament women and men who did look into Christ's eyes--and their lives were forever changed. Their stories are presented in chronological order, so the entire book, is a picture of Christ's life and earthly ministry, from beginning to end, as seen through the eyes of these women and men.
USA Today bestselling author Heather Horrocks brings these New Testament men and women to life, as they walk beside Jesus, listen to His words, leave their nets to become fishers of men, drop their burdens of sin and sickness at His feet. .
Elisabeth, the mother of John the Baptist.
Christ's Mother, Mary.
Anna, prophetess at the temple.

Imagine the love they must have seen. When the Messiah laid His hands upon their heads and blessed them, what great power and love did they feel emanating from Him? When the Savior forgave them of their sins and healed them, body and soul, imagine the power that must have surged through them. Is is hard to imagine what they must have felt just standing in His presence, one of the crowd.
We may know others by their fruits. Christ’s ministry and Atonement has brought about the greatest and sweetest harvest ever. His followers and apostles also bore fruit of sweetness and light.
These women and men did not have to imagine. They knew. As long as there is a Savior, there is hope.
