    I usually don't enjoy Biblical fiction around the time of Christ because most writers make it so focused on the Roman debauchery and violence of the times, that the story is generally depressing and I don't even usually finish them. Bunn and Oke have delivered an awesome representation of this time period with this series - I recommend all of them. The characters come alive and most importantly, the amazing miracles, the closeness of the Spirit of God, and the movement of the early church all come alive in these books, where the impact of the risen Jesus ripples out believably in the lives of those who were the forefathers of the church we have today.

    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.
