    This review was written for Centurion's Wife, The - eBook.
    The authors capture well the sense of intrigue and uneasiness that plagued the palace and the surroundings in those difficult times. The ego clashes, the petty thrusts for power, they are all visible here. The authors have conducted tremendous research into the history and milieu of the time. The writing is dreamy and imaginative, aspiring to heights of glorious description.

    When we read the Bible, it is sometimes hard to remember that the minor characters were all real people, with real fears and failings. Christian fiction based on the Bible helps bring these to light.

    I found the pace a little slow at first but it began to pick up a few chapters down the line, and I found myself intrigued by the whole premise and the manner in which the authors had captured it.

    I recommend that you read this investigation into the Resurrection story.

    I have always loved Biblical fiction. It takes the Biblical stories and weaves imaginary characters in with historical fact that teach as well as entertain.

    I read this book about a year ago, and I just loved how it put the Bible into real life perspective. I know it's fictional, mixed with historical, and yet it's meant a lot. I prayed awhile back that God would bring the Bible alive to me, more than just a text book, so I could see the realness.. and reading this book did a bit of that. I loved it so much, I started a "Biblical Fiction" Book club, hoping others will start to see the Bible in a real and personal way.
