The Damascus Way by Davis Bunn and Janette Oke is the third and final installment in the Acts of Faith series. I didn’t read the first two, however that didn’t keep me from enjoying this one very much.
It’s well written – and from what I’ve heard, it’s the best of the three so far. I still would like to read The Hidden Flame and The Centurion’s Wife, though, just to round out the story for myself. The reason being because the lives of the characters from these previous books become intertwined with Julia, whom this book is about. She is the daughter of a rich merchant who is devastated when she learns a secret about her family.
The story begins after the resurrection of Christ and as such, tells us of the early days of the church. You will read about people you’re familiar with from Bible stories, including Saul of Tarsus – I’ve always enjoyed that aspect of Biblical fiction. I think readers of all ages will enjoy, and be inspired by, this book.
