Publisher's Summary

The fledgling church is being scattered by persecution. It is spearheaded by a fanatical young Pharisee who does not realize he is unwittingly aiding a divine mandate to spread the truth “unto the ends of the earth …”Young Julia has everything money can buy —except for acceptance by either Gentiles or Judeans in Tiberias. When she discovers the secret her beloved Greek father has kept all these years, she is devastated. Julia and her Hebrew mother are indeed less than second-class citizens. Her future is dark with clouds of uncertainty. Jacob, Abigail’s brother, is now a young man attempting to find his own place among the community of believers. Does it mean trading away the exhilaration and adventure of his current profession as a caravan guard? Hired by Julia’s father to protect a wealthy merchant’s caravans on the secretive “Frankincense Trail,” Jacob also reluctantly takes on the perilous responsibility of passing letters and messages between communities of believers now dispersed across the land. He is alarmed to discover that Julia, hardly more than a girl, is also a courier. Can their initial mistrust be put aside to accomplish their mission? An earthshaking encounter on the way to Damascus has repercussions far beyond the lives of Julia and Jacob.

    Actually, it is Jennifer, not Michael. I enjoy a variety of books but am drawn to romantic historical fiction with a Christian message.

    "Our Lord Lives"

    This is an amazing series! If you enjoy biblical fiction then you are in for a treat. This is the third book in the series, all good. Recommend reading in order. All three books take place in first century AD after the death and resurrection of Jesus. Well written and closely follows scripture.

    "Best of the series!"

    This is the most action packed of the series and follows 4 main characters rather than 1-2 as previous books. Seeing Jacob's character development as a young man was great. I liked the way everything was wrapped up at the end but I'm sure some would think it was a little too "happily ever after". I wish the narrator had been the same as the previous two books. I thought she did a bit better job at differentiating between different characters' voices.

    "Very well thought out and researched. Well done!"

    The reader has done a superb job of showing others the faith of the ancients. Good job. All who had any part of it

    "Good part three of a series"

    I love how the author can spin a story around the brief account in the bible. Very clever and enjoyable!

    "VERY hard to get through!"

    I am disappointed this book was simply narrated instead of being "voice acted" by any one of the many talented actors I have listened to. As I see it, this audiobook has 2 glaring problems. The first I just mentioned was exacerbated by the fact that Ms Lyons seems to have a speech impediment. The second is that there isn't even an attempt to inform readers/listeners that the story threads are changing. I looked at the written book and most of the time when the writer changed story threads, she made a new paragraph at the least or a chapter change at most to give readers the ability to understand events. Instead, I have just spent more than a week trying my best to finish this book with some amount of certainty that I know what it's about. I will not purchase an audiobook with this narrator again and I don't think I'll buy a written book by Ms Oke either. So, now that I've made it through the book I honestly cannot say that I was able to follow all the events. So disappointing, especially since I love the "historical" stories from Biblical times!

    "Enriching Reading Experience"

    The book helped me to but flesh and blood on many of the New Testament characters. It was well researched and often feel the sand of the Middle East in my mouth and on my skin. I now understand the persecution of the early Christ followers.

    "You will be blessed! "

    I just finished reading and listening to all three in this series of books. I absolutely loved each one of them! The reader was fabulous and the stories can't be beat. I am male and 10 tool of historical fiction on the action side. my wife told me about these because she loved them. I enjoy them as much as she did. I hope that there are more books written by these folks in the same time period!
