The award-winning nonfiction, MARY KNEW, is based on the written testimony of James, the youngest son of Joseph. It tells how God named, blessed and ordained Mary to be the mother of Jesus, Immanuel before her conception. It gives data about Mary's parents, her birth, early life and the decade she lived in the Jerusalem Temple. James traveled to Bethlehem with Mary and his father. His eyewitness account of the birth of Christ is astounding. The whole book is filled with miracles and angels. It is a compilation of traditions and a narrative history which tells of difficulties she and her parents experienced. James' testimony explains how everyone in the Province of Galilee knew why Mary was born.

The sacred scriptures by James were used in the early Christian churches for hundreds of years. James became a chief Apostle and was first Bishop of Christians in Jerusalem.
