Product Description

Julia has everything money can buy.except for acceptance by either the Gentiles or the Jews. Her Greek father already has a wife and family, leaving Julia and her Hebrew mother second-class citizens. But when they are introduced to followers of the Way, they become part of that community of believers.

Abigail's brother, Jacob, now a young man, is attempting to discover his own place as a Christian. He is concerned that being more serious about his faith means trading away the exhilaration of his current profession as a caravan guard. Hired by Julia's father to protect the wealthy merchant's caravans on the secretive "Frankincense Trail"-undercover transport of this highly valuable commodity- Jacob also passes letters and messages between various communities of believers. He is alarmed to find out that Julia, hardly more than a girl, is also a messenger. Can their immediate mistrust be put aside to finally bring their hearts together?

    I read this book in two days. I really enjoyed the descriptions of the life and country of Israel and surrounding areas; and the daily life scenarios for people. The living with sometimes daily news of fellow believers' sufferings and the actions of the Roman occupiers of the country are also enlightening.

    The story itself was a bit slow, but worth it for the examples of what it really takes to live the life. This is still going on today! Militant Islam, rather than Rome, are the antagonists, and they are less obvious, but the fear is just as sudden and the hurt is the same.

    I loved being able to recognize names from Scripture and to experience what it was like for them. It was refreshing to try a new type of fiction as well. Unfortunately I chose to read the 3rd in the set instead of the 1st...my mistake but none the less I am enjoying the 2nd in the set as well. It also has helped me contemplate scripture in a deeper sense. Great book!!

    Title: The Damascus Way.

    Author: Davis Bunn and Janette Oke.

    Genre: Christian, Historical Fiction, Biblical Retelling, Romance, Sequel.

    Plot: Julia, the only daughter of wealthy merchant Jamal, has everything in life that money can buy. A wonderful palace to call home, fine clothes, plenty of food, servants to wait on her - yet she and her mother Helen live a very lonely existence between her father's visits. When Julia learns the secret why they are shunned, her world is thrown into chaos and only her new-found faith remains steady. A new depth and peace fills her as she embarks on a journey that will change her life in more ways than one, and lead her parents to salvation in Christ.

    Meanwhile, Jacob, now a young man ready to take his place in the world, escorts an ill Alban to Jerusalem and leaves him in the care of the few remaining believers there. Taking charge of a secret commission for Jamal, Jacob searches for God's will in his life and hovers in indecision. Jamal, grateful to him and impressed by him, promotes Jacob and gives him another dangerous mission to fulfill. Unknown to Jamal, the believers also entrust Jacob with a secret mission, causing him to become a courier for the persecuted Christians scattered aboard - a dangerous task.

    With Saul's persecution of the church increasing, the believers flee from Jerusalem while they still can. One of the last to flee, Abigail and her young daughter Dorcas leave with Alban and a caravan of other believers. Escorting them for the majority of their journey is Linux, once a Roman officer and now a strong faithful brother in the faith. Newly returned from a visit to his homeland, Linux sees the recent changes in the country and wonders with the others what will happen next. He is assigned command of the garrison near the village where Abigail takes up residence and quietly goes about making a change in the hearts of those he comes into contact with.

    With several character stories all growing, intertwining and reaching toward the final epic climax, this book will hold your interest to the final page.

    Likes/Dislikes: Beautifully written and populated with wonderful characters, some new and some old friends, this is a classic. It was well organized and flowed well between each character shift in viewpoint. I was quite satisfied with the conclusion to Linux's interesting life story, told over the span of the three books in this trilogy. I would have liked at least one more chapter or even just a paragraph on what happened to Jacob and Julia but with my imagination, it's fairly easy to figure out. All in all, I highly enjoyed this book!

    Rating: PG-14 and up, mainly for reading level. Highly recommended to all audiences!

    Date Report Written: March 24, 2012.
