I also thought the branches of the story that focused on Abigail's suitors were interesting as well. They both were witness to miracles and they both felt the Holy Spirit calling to them, but only one of them came to accept Christ and become one of his followers. The other let his jealousy and anger lead him to a position where he became a vocal opponent of Christ's followers. The different paths the men end up taking are thought-provoking.
I enjoyed this newest book in the series, even though it ended at a bit of a cliffhanger (just like the first book did). I have no idea when the next book in the series is going to be released (or who it is going to focus on), but I am looking forward to it. I don't often read biblical fiction, but I have found this series to be very engaging. It is awe-inspiring to imagine actually living during that historic time and I've enjoyed gaining a better understanding of what life was like then. I have especially enjoyed learning more about what life was like for women in that time and place and what it was like for gentile converts in the early Church. If you have any interest in fiction set immediately following the crucifixion of Christ, you would probably enjoy this series.

This is the second book of the Acts Of Faith series authored by Davis Bunn and Janette Oke. They have taken Biblical accounts found in the book of Acts and woven them together with the fiction of their imaginations to create a story that brings life into characters of old.
Never before have I thought about how people must have spread rumors saying that Peter killed Ananias and Sapphira; or thought of how the women must have felt when treated with loving respect by transformed men.
This audio book allows you to step back into time and use your imagination to be there when God shows His power through miracles and His peace through a martyr's death.
The account of firm faith, deep betrayal, and overwhelming loss will keep you riveted and give you a great appreciation for what our Brothers and Sisters went through in the early years of the Church.

The original book is published by Bethany House a division of Baker Publishing Group. This audio copy for review has been provided by Oasis Audio.
The Hidden Flame excellently portrays the political and cultural setting of the time, while giving a look into life was like for the early Church. What impacted me the most was what it meant then to be a follower, that the cost was truly everything dear in this life. I highly recommend this book, both for its historical and spiritual value. (I received a copy of this book free from Bethany Publishers.)
