As a child I wondered if Jesus ever had a pet. In C. L. Francisco’s beautiful novel, he has a cat. And the story of Jesus’ ministry, told by his feline friend, is wonderfully true to the Biblical account, gorgeously evocative, and thoroughly enjoyable. Have you ever wondered why Jesus calls God his Father, not his Mother. Mari the cat wonders too, and is given a truly beautiful answer. Do animals pray? What would parables sound like if given to cats instead of men? And why did Jesus have to die?

A pleasingly convincing portrayal of Jesus the man, coming to terms with his divinity, of Jesus the healer, dealing with human frailty, and Jesus the teacher, carefully avoiding the lure and temptations of human fame and power, this novel is truly one to treasure. Enter the desert, see the sea through kitten eyes that have known only rivers, learn that a Roman might not always be evil, and visit foreign towns, but hide in His arms.

By the end of the tale, the cat understands so much more than human language, and recognizes the pain of human choice. Readers, seeing the familiar through different eyes, might learn a lot as well, for how easily we “forget that human hearts can only be loved into loving.” How quickly we condemn and fail to eat with those who are only sinners like ourselves, or cats like our pets. I love this book!

Disclosure: I learned this was free and couldn’t resist. I just wish I’d read it sooner. A real treat for all ages! ( )
