Storyline

What if Jesus were born in the year 2002 to a young Jewish couple in New York City, instead of Bethlehem two millennia ago? Mary is an 18-year-old high school senior, and Joe, her fiancé, is 23, working hard to get Techweb established as an Internet consulting firm. Would anyone believe Mary and Joe's claim to abstinence? What kind of advice would they receive from family, friends, neighbors, and folks at the corner deli? Spurning her mother's insistence that she get on with her life, Mary is thrown out of the house, rejected by Joe, and expelled from school as she grows larger with child. Her family doctor is baffled; his examination reveals her story to be true! Mary goes to live with her beautician cousin in a crowded apartment, and begins to lose heart. But a sassy Hispanic angel in a Mets cap and jacket wrestles Joe in an alleyway and makes him listen to the divine message of the miraculous, "Fear Not." The couple is reunited and together face a hostile and unbelieving world. ... Written by Del Rey Communications
