#80: A.D. 33 by Ted Dekker

They call her the Queen of the Outcasts. Maviah, a woman whose fate was sealed on her birth by this world-unwanted, illegitimate, female, a slave-subject to the whims of all. But then she met a man named Yeshua who opened her eyes. She found strength in his words, peace from the brutal word around her. Because of what he taught her, she has gathered her own traveling kingdom of outcasts deep in the desert, wielding an authority few have seen. But when her growing power threatens the rulers around her, they set out to crush all she loves, leaving her reeling as a slave once more. She must find Yeshua to save her people, but when she does, she will be horrified to discover that he faces his own death. 

Enter a story full of intrigue, heart-wrenching defeat, uncompromising love and staggering victory-one that re-examines everything you thought you knew about the heart of Jesus's stunning message and the power that follows for those who follow his easily forgotten way.

REVIEW:
Empowering read.
A book that fills your soul with God's word, love and forgiveness. 
I didn't read the first book, A.D. 30, and it didn't matter. I didn't feel lost or miss anything. So this can be and was read standalone. 
Ted Dekker has a way of using a story to make you see the nature of some of God's most important teachings. In this book, he used many familiar biblical characters and a couple not-so-familiar ones to show the power of faith. I really loved Saba. His heart never wavered from God's way once. For all he had been through, it shows how pure his faith and love went. It was beautiful to read.
There were some deep heart-wrenching moments though. It is a biblical story, and we all know how barbaric life often was in that era. You can just imagine some of the more uncomfortable scenes in the story.
Still, those scenes were real and have a deep impact on the reader, as well as in the story. I liked this book, and know many of you biblical fiction fans will like it too.

How Reading Helps Your Brain

The brain is one of the most complex biological structures that scientists and doctors have ever encountered. It is like a machine that runs non-stop that has the computing power to be able to make very complex decisions and experience unexplainable phenomena like emotions. The brain controls every other organ in the body so it is arguably the most important one. Unfortunately, probably due to its brilliance, it is a fairly vulnerable structure that can and does degrade over time.
Many experts agree that one of the best ways to maintain the health of the brain is to keep it active, just as you would with your muscles to keep them strong. There are also a number of nutrients that are very important to maintaining a healthy brain and preventing its decline.
