Popular Christian authors Bunn and Oke unite in the second installment in the Acts of Faith series (after The Centurion’s Wife, 2009) to tell the story of Abigail, who, in spite of being injured in a terrible accident, finds herself the object of desire for two vastly different, powerful men: Ezra, a wealthy merchant, and Linux, an officer in the Roman army. Neither of these nonbelievers pleases Peter, the leader of Abigail’s new religion, so he betroths her instead to the saintly Stephen, another follower of the Way. However, many influential men want to see the Christians annihilated, along with their iconoclastic beliefs, making life as one of the faithful increasingly dangerous. Oke and Bunn have re-created Judea in the time immediately following the crucifixion of Christ. Richly textured and filled with familiar New Testament figures, their novel also meticulously describes the political climate of the time, including the conflicts between the Romans, Zealots, and Hasmodeans. More than a simple love story, given miracles, martyrdom, and men on a mission, this is the perfect tale for readers who enjoy such biblical epics as Henryk Sienkiewicz’s Quo Vadis, Lew Wallace’s Ben Hur, and Lloyd C. Douglas’ The Robe. --Shelley Mosley --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.
From the Inside Flap
DAVIS BUNN, a professional novelist for twenty years, has sales in excess of six million copies in sixteen languages. His books have appeared on numerous national bestseller lists. He is known for the diversity of his writing talent, from gentle gift books like The Quilt to high-powered thrillers such as The Great Divide. He has also enjoyed great success in his collaborations with Janette Oke, with whom he has co-authored a series of groundbreaking historical novels. Davis draws on a rich background of international experience. Raised in North Carolina, he completed his undergraduate studies at Wake Forest University, then traveled to London to earn a master's degree in international economics and finance before embarking on a distinguished business career taking him to more than thirty countries in Europe, Africa, and the Middle East. He has received numerous accolades, including three Christy Awards for excellence in fiction. He currently serves as writer-in-residence at Regent's Park College, Oxford University, and is a sought-after lecturer on the craft of writing. JANETTE OKE was born on the Canadian prairie in Champion, Alberta, and has drawn from her own family's heritage in developing characters and plots. She is a graduate of Mountain View Bible College in Alberta, where she met her husband, Edward. After pastoring churches in Canada and Indiana, the Okes returned to the Calgary, Alberta, area, where Edward served in several positions on college faculties while Janette continued writing. She has authored over four dozen novels for adults and children, and her book sales total nearly thirty million copies. Her literary awards are numerous and include the ECPA President's Award and the CBA Life Impact Award for her significant contribution to the growth of Christian fiction. She also has won both Gold Medallion and Christy awards. The Okes have three sons and one daughter, all married, and are enjoying their many grandchildren. Edward and Janette are active in their local church and make their home north of Calgary. --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

While the historical fiction is a little dramatic, and the evangelicalism is a bit overly obvious, I've enjoyed all three books, and, in context, they tell a lovely part of the passion story that's often overlooked or minimized - the early Church. This story - the three books - bring to life people who struggled with their world and their faith in a time and place where life was tenuous at best and death sudden at worst - sounds like now.
Read, and enjoy!
