Publishers Description Many commentators assume John's reference to "the chosen lady and her children" in 2 John 1 refers to the church. But what if there really was a respected Christian sister in the community to whom John entrusted his epistle? What might have been this woman's life story? What might she remember of the apostle "whom Jesus loved"? Thom Lemmons's biblically based fiction -- third in his popular Daughters of Faith series -- recounts what life might have been like for this woman, whom he envisions as a young Nubian mother. In his dynamic portrait of "Amanis," we become eyewitnesses of the last days of the apostolic era, gleaning insights into our own ways of dealing with monumental change within the church and society today.

Reviews - What do customers think about Mother of Faith (Daughters of Faith)?
A well told story Jun 5, 2001
When Patroclus learns his wife's newborn is female, he sends for Marcus Scaevolus to take away the unnecessary brat. Remembering how she felt like an animal in that same courtyard, Ethiopian slave Amanis intervenes and defies the word of her Master by rescuing his newborn female. With no place else to turn, Amanis takes the endangered infant to the Jews.
When Patroclus turns to sorcerers to learn why he has had a string of bad luck including a female infant, a frightened Amanis panics and flees. Patroclus and Scaevolus pursue Amanis to punish her for her crime. Wherever she goes, Amanis rescues infants until she adopts a crippled baby, but will they ever be safe?
The third book in the Daughters of Faith series, MOTHER OF FAITH, is a superb biblical fiction work that will electrify sub-genre readers. Thom Lemmons paints a realistic picture of the times through his characters. Especially hooking the audience is Amanis whose caring and kind persona rings genuine even though she constantly places her self at risk. Fans of Mr. Lemmons will enjoy his latest tale and newcomers like this reviewer will hunt down the two previous novels.
