Item Description...
His name is James. He was the brother of Jesus Christ. The Brother's Keeper is a story imagined from the few known facts of the life of a real man. The book tells the story of the latter part of Jesus' ministry, up through his death and resurrection, as seen through the eyes of His own family. Tracy Groot takes readers, with James, on a journey from unbelief to belief as James grapples with the question of who Jesus is.

Publishers Description
Thirty Years after he followed a star to Bethlemen, one of the Magi is back on another mission. This time, he is sent not to an infant "king of the Jews," but to the king's brother James. The sons of Joseph run a successful carpentry business in Nazareth. At least, it was successful until the oldest Brother, Jesus, left home to tell the world he will forgive their sins and save their souls. Now everyone is hearing outlandish reports of healings and exorcisms. Business is suffering; not many people want a stool made by the family of the local crazy man. James wants nothing more than to shut out the strangeness and have a normal life. But normal walked out the day his brother did, and strange things keep happening. One brother starts listening to Jesus' troubling speeches. Fanatical Zealots descend on Nazereth to convince the family to join their fight against Rome. An eerie visitor with a foreign accent tells James to "consider it all joy." James knows that this year's Passover pilgrimage will be more important than ever. He must find Jesus and talk some sense into him. He must warn of a possible plot against Jesus. And he must decide for himself who his brother really is. What does James not know, on the dusty road to Jerusalem, is that more than one faction has murder on it's mind. Tracy Groot is a part time writer, full-time mother, and co-owner with her husband, Jack, of a coffee shop in Holland, Michigan.

More About Tracy Groot
Tracy L Groot Hi. I’m Tracy Groot. I like bullet points. - I was born, raised, and live near Grand Rapids, Michigan. - Michigan’s Upper Peninsula is my favorite place on earth because of the Mackinac Straits, the fish and chips at Brown’s Fishery, and backpacking the Porcupine Mountains with my family. (Whoever called them mountains never made it to Colorado.) - I have no greater joy than to come across a Calvin and Hobbes cartoon I haven’t read. - My husband Jack and I have three sons and a daughter-in-law. They are most excellent. - Reading and writing is just about tied with Jesus as a first love. Jesus wins. - I watch a lot of movies and TV shows. I don’t mind, though. - I have a sweet tooth I am pledged to keep happy. - I’m a Lions fan. - I knit. - I’m allergic to kiwifruit. There are worse things. - That’s pretty much it. The "Official Blurb". Tracy Groot is the critically acclaimed and Christy Award-winning author of several works of historical fiction. Her books have received starred Booklist and Publishers Weekly reviews and have been called "beautifully written" and "page-turning" by Publishers Weekly, and "gripping" with "exquisitely drawn" characters by Library Journal. Tracy and her husband have three sons (and a daughter-in-law) and together own a coffee shop in Holland, Michigan.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Changed  Mar 30, 2005
I felt the uneasiness that James must have felt knowing that his brother was not what he had hoped he would be. It wasn't the dying on the cross that convinced James that Jesus was extraordinary. William Barclay said it best, "That there was a meeting of James and the Risen Christ is certain. What passed at that sacred and intimate moment we shall never know. But we do know...James who had been the hostile and unsympathetic opponent of Jesus became (changed)...." From The Letters of James and Peter.
Flesh and Blood Brother  Mar 18, 2005
Who is this brother, the brother of Jesus? His name is James. Feel the anguish of a younger brother, whose older brother has left the family unit and is bringing scorn on the family. Smell the sawdust of the carpenter's shop where the brothers had worked together. What is the meaning of the rumors about Jesus? But in James' eyes, Jesus is just a man, raised in a devote Jewish family. Finally, when Jesus died a criminal's death, James knew. This Jesus was the Son of God. This is an excellent book telling the story about Jesus as seen through the deep emotions, awakening senses, the turmoil and the conflict that James, the brother of Jesus, felt. The story fits within the scriptural referrences to James in Galatians 1:19; I Corthinians 15:7, Acts 1:13-14 and the book of James.
