In The Light of the Sun Nov 17, 2007
This is one of the most exciting books that I have read in a long time, once I started to read it I didn't want to put it down. The author put much effort into her research about what the life style and culture of early believers in Christ must have really been like. Although it is a fictional book, the story is so well written and captivating that you feel like you are right there living out the story yourself. Her descriptive use of words is so masterful that it adds even a greater element of excitement and emotion to the story. You feel as though you were part of the ministry that was getting started then and continues strong today. A must read book for anyone who would have enjoyed growing up and old during the time of Christs earthly ministry. This story is a tribute to the early believers and the sacrifices they often chose to make because of their convictions.
