A blissful tale of Divine Love, honor and reverence a spiritual journey like no other. Mary of Magdala tells of her personal relationship with Yeshua, from the time they were both twelve years old, up until Yeshua's ministry began. Her story begins in Magdala, ending two decades later in the town of Bethany. She recalls vividly, the wondrous events, the trips to the outer fringes of Heaven, and the candid visitations past the boundaries of surrealism.

At seventeen, Mary is smitten, and her father, who despises Yeshua, wants him out of her life. Mary ignores her father, and presses on terribly missing the point. She is heart-broken and will wallow in self-pity, angry with herself for not trying hard enough.

This is when the romance of her soul begins; the subsequent trips are unique and super-extraordinary. But Mary's heart will cloud the gifts; she is lacking in cleanliness of spirit to comprehend the searing and beatific images of God before her. She will never know the true nature of the boy she had fallen in love with, until that awesome day in the desert night eighteen years later.

Engaging. Compelling. Entertaining. Beautifully written.
Ever wondered what it would be like to travel back in time and walk with the Son of God, as his closet friend and companion? To experience the
frustrations of not understanding his proverbs, parables, allegories and metaphors, as he shares them with you in the intimate setting of a nighttime campfire? This Provocative novel draws you into a world where you want to remain, long after you’ve finished reading. Perhaps no other novel has captured some of the stories from the Holy Bible and made them come alive, as this novel has. From the very start, Yeshua, My Love, brings it’s audience as close as possible to the experience of befriending Yeshua as a little boy on the playground, to the miracles of his adulthood.
Don Okolo, through his creative and vivid imagination, stimulates the mind of his reader by brilliantly capturing the rich details of what might have occurred moments before and after every miracle. You become each character as you explore their cherished relationship with Yeshua, as your own personal bond with him is awakened. You are privileged to see what’s in their hearts and minds, to feel their emotions and to laugh at Yeshua’s humor. Okolo stays true to his storytelling style; flamboyant, intriguing and vibrant! In the original story of the Son of God (The Holy Bible) we search for in-depth conversations and small human details that we can relate to. This book fills in those gaps, helping us to connect the dots with possibility thinking!
