Unveil the Truth Behind King Herod and Mary — Explore Their Lives Like Never Before with The First Book in This Eye-Opening Series!

Behind the well-known names of Mary and Herod lies a story untold, until now. Kathie Lee Gifford’s latest book ventures beyond the surface, exploring the intricate dynamics of their lives against the backdrop of ancient societal forces.

The first installment in the Ancient Evil, Living Hope series, Herod and Mary begins with the tragic life of King Herod — Christianity's first true persecutor. As an impressionable boy, he is forever marked by the raw power of Rome. Throughout the course of Herod's career, he gains power, fame, and riches beyond belief. Yet murderous intrigues stalk this man — and infect his own dark soul.

But, Mary saw the struggle of her people under a tyrant. Like all Jewish women, she knew the promises of Torah and longed for a deliverer. But no one could have prepared her for what the angel of God revealed: that the Messiah wouldn't arrive with the blaring of trumpets, the clash of arms, or the fanfare of a mighty host. He would arrive as an infant within her own womb. The light of the world was born in a cave: not a king who maims and destroys, but the gentle King of the Jews.

Prepare to have your views on these historical figures forever changed… Through meticulously researched narrative and a fresh perspective, this book sheds light on the complex relationship between Mary and Herod. It combines historical accuracy with compelling storytelling, offering readers a unique opportunity to experience the biblical world from an insider's perspective.

This riveting narrative nonfiction work reveals deep insight to how Herod came to power, how corruption and an ancient evil threatened the stability of a nation, and how a teenage Mary was called to traverse these obstacles to bring the Savior, Jesus, our living hope, into the world.
