About The Book


Mary’s Lament is an attempt to connect our religious struggles of faith with those who lived through the birth of our religion, and it provides a narrative walk with Jesus’s mother, brother, and sister as a way to assist us in honoring Jesus’s command to walk with him through the kingdom of God’s love. Author Joseph C. Nyce also explores through this narrative the tragic religious history of violence, presenting a fresh look at the violent beginnings of Christianity.

The violence of nascent Christianity still haunts us through the barriers of belief. We can explore this transformative time in our religious history to discover a deeper meaning of faith through imagining real persons caught up in this division of faith between two groups of people devoted to the same God and agreeing that righteousness was the way to honor him.
