About the Book

Book: When Only Faith Remains

Author: Amy C. O'Reilly

Genre: Christian Living/Personal Growth

Release Date: May 6, 2019

Hidden just beneath the surface of Mary’s unique calling to serve as the mother of Christ lies an equally captivating story of her journey of faith.

Sometimes when our plans are derailed or we encounter struggles, our faith is the only thing we have to draw upon. Trusting God through those hard times is the bedrock of what will keep us grounded. But what happens when fear creeps in? Perhaps that’s what it was like for the virgin Mary when Gabriel came to her with news that she was highly favored and chosen to bear the Christ child.

Drawing parallels from her own journey-of-faith life experiences and the life of Mary, the mother of Jesus, Amy C. O’Reilly offers encouragement and inspiration to readers who seek to strengthen and move forward from fear to faith just as Mary did.

With Luke 2 and 1 Corinthians 13 as reference points, readers will connect their faith in ways that bind them to love and hope in the person of Jesus Christ. While your circumstance may differ from Mary’s, the similar deepening of faith through heartache and suffering and hope and triumph will inspire you in your identity, calling, and destiny in Christ.

My Thoughts . . .

In Only Faith Remains, Amy C. O'Reilly shares her personal stories to help us focus on spiritual truths and then shares how they relate to the life of Mary in scripture. I was moved by the author's transparency and willingness to share the struggles that have brought transformation in her life. Each chapter makes a perfect daily devotional (there are fifteen) giving the reader opportunities to reflect on Mary's journey. This book is perfect as the Christmas season approaches (or for any season!) to take us much deeper into considering everything that Mary experienced from the first time she is mentioned in scripture to the last.

I was given a copy of this book for free. I was not required to give a favorable review nor was any money received for this review. All comments and opinions are my own.
