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.
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.
