#76--a Christian novel
  mullinstreetzoo | Feb 12, 2021 |
Another great book by Bunn and Oke. Leah is a young woman who came from a home of wealth and power. Her father lost his wealth and honor so he married off two of his three daughters and sent Leah, his youngest, to live with her uncle, Pontius Pilate. After living as a servant to Pilates wife, Procula, for three years, Pilate gives her hand in marriage to Alban, a Centurion who is on a mission for Pilate to find the missing body of Jesus and to find if the disciples are planning a revolt against Rome.

Leah is afraid she will end up in a marriage in which she will be a slave and abused as her sisters were. Leah is sent on a mission by Procula to find the same information that Alban has been sent to find. Along the way Alban and Leah have a change of heart. Toward each other and the Judean God.

This book was a wonderful surprise in both its accuracy in utilizing the Biblical account, as well as its mastery in enlivening the recorded events pulled from the Bible by weaving in the fictional story of Leah. I have read these parts of the Bible more times than I can count, but this novel made the events fresh and exciting, as if I were living in the time period and watching them first hand. It made me realize as I read it how much I take for granted in having the completed Bible, which those first believers did not have. I could relate quite easily to some of the characters, especially the portrayal of Mary Magdalene. I also especially loved how the authors described the scene at Pentacost, as well as the allusions to the wedding in Revelation using Leah's wedding plans.
This book is the first book in the series Acts of Faith, which I like because not only are all the loose threads not accounted for, but also because I would love to see other Biblical characters portrayed by these authors, such as Paul. I look forward to continuing the series with the next book, The Hidden Flame.
This is how Christian fiction should be written, in my humble opinion. The beliefs and doubts of the characters are real and believable - even to the point of looking messy and contradictory. Their faith hasn't been softened and molded by political correctness, too afraid to quote more than a few fee-good verses from Psalms or even use the name of Jesus. A Christian is not a one-dimensional type-cast description, and neither should the characters in a Christian fiction novel be.

The Rapture! I had to read it to save my soul!

Actually I think I must have wandered into some kind of Christian part of the library without knowing it to pick up this and the last book both at once.

The time period of this book, AD 33, is fascinating to me but I could have used more history and less romance. Leah and Albert are the two main characters. Albert is far more interesting than Leah and the book would have earned an extra star if his was the only point of view in the book.

Also. There are so many typos!!!! I know it's petty but that drove me nuts.

Apparently I'm a sucker for a pretty cover. This book looked so promising sitting all pretty in the library bookshelf next to the other drabby books. It just screamed to get picked up. However, much to my disappoint the content was boring. I got 100 pages in and I just couldn't continue anymore with the snooze fest.

****Potential Spoilers****

There wasn't much to Leah who is the female protagonist. Her father suffered a lost and her reputation ruined. Um, okay what else? Yeah, she's now a loyal servant in her uncle Pontius Pilate's house, yet he wants to set her up in a "strategic marriage". Did I miss something here? Someone who wants to marry up is not going to want to marry a lowly servant...well, at least the last time I checked. Apparently, Pontius' power is so great and Leah is so wonderful Alban can't pass up.

Alban, if you haven't guess is the male hero. All brains and good looks. Oh, yeah and of course he's the stereotypical fearless leader who all the men respect and doesn't loose any of his men in battle. *yawn*

So there I pretty much summarize the first 100 pages for you. I would like to get repaid in time please.

I'm still counting it for my read shelf because I wasted time reading the 100 pages. I definitely won't be picking this one up again. ( )
