This book was amazing! I so fell in love with the characters and the story line. I was so wrapped up in it emotionally, that when the search for the truth about Jesus came to a head my heart was pounding so fast!
This is a biblical based story from the point of view of a Roman Centurion (the one whose servant was healed by Jesus) and the people he knows and meets, wrapped up in how the birth of Christianity started. This is a great angle. I think sometimes, as Christians, we only accept the story of Christ from the perspective of the Hebrew (Jew) because they are the ones who wrote the words of God in the bible.
The story is well written. The plot is very understandable and easy to follow. Character development is full and believable.
Overall, a great read and well worth your time.
The Hidden Flame (Acts of Faith, Book 2)
I very much enjoyed this book. Again I was totally captivated by the story and writing. This is a biblical based story about one of the followers of Christ who had a small role in Book 1: The Centurion's Wife.
The story line is easy to follow and is inspiring. Abigail could be anyone of us. Reading about how the followers of The Way went about their daily lives after Jesus' Resurrection, and how they shared the love of Christ to bring unbelievers into the faith is in no way different than how we need to be doing that today.
SPOILER (sorta) ... this book also builds a great mystery which will be lived out in book 3: The Damascus Way. Though we already know the biblical "ending", turning the pages to read the story of the characters was a must! You just wanted to know how they would react to the biblical events.
This story is well written, and the plot is easy to follow. The character development is full and believable and flows seamlessly from Book 1.
Very well worth your time.
The Damascus Way (Acts of Faith Series, Book 3)
This is book 3 in the Acts of Faith Series. This is a biblical story set amongst the followers of The Way after the resurrection of Christ. A new subset of characters are introduced that further explains the culture of the area and time. I liked this book, the story is written very well, but I found it to be a bit choppy than the other two books in the presentation of the story. It seems like the writers were trying to tell too many stories in one place.
The story(ies) in this book flow seamlessly from book 2, but are just a little bit darker because of what was going on in their lives at this point in history.
This book completes the series and closes up the characters in an acceptable way. You don't want to miss reading this book if you have read books 1 & 2.
Well worth your time.
