Abigail, an orphan, has found the young brother she had thought was dead. Along the way she also has found a second family--those brave followers of the Jewish prophet Jesus. Under attack from several groups who hate them for their growing influence, these new Christians are spreading out from Jerusalem, taking their life-changing message with them. This further enrages the religious elite, and they engage whomever they can to stamp out this powerful new sect called The Way.

Two suitors desire the lovely Abigail's hand in marriage. One is a successful Hebrew merchant and widower looking for a mother for his children. On the other side is the Roman soldier Linux, who is captivated by her winsome charm and could offer the sanctuary--maybe even the love--for which she yearns. But her heart has been captured by neither of these. Stephen, one of the leaders of The Way, has a character and a faith that move her deeply, but his outspoken preaching has marked him for assassination. Will her faith and courage withstand a heartbreak beyond comprehension?
And then a glimmer of hope appears, one she never would have foreseen.

GauryCastle Rock, COAge: Over 655 Stars Out Of 5August 7, 2012GauryCastle Rock, COAge: Over 65Quality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5After our study group had just finished a nine-month search into the book of Acts, finding this trilogy felt like a reward for our effort. We all know the story of the leaders. Insights into the lives of the 'followers' in their extremely difficult, yet richly blessed, days at that time convinced me that we who love the Lord now are actually spoiled brats! He knows that, but He still puts up with us. Thank you, Bunn & Oke, and thank You, Lord!
