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?

  • “Exciting reading.”

    Booklist (starred review)

  • “Oke and Bunn have cowritten several successful novels, including the Song of Acadia series. Oke is a big name in the genre and has numerous fans. The success of the first two series titles make this an essential purchase for public libraries, but the relaxed, character-driven pace and engaging story will win the authors new readers.”

    " I do believe I should have read these in order. It was a good book though. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Katie | 2/17/2014

    " This book was pretty good too, I think it was the best book in the series so far (are there plans for another one?). It was pretty good, and I'll recommend it to my mom since I think she'll like it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cheryl | 2/15/2014

    " I continue to love this inspiring series. I can't wait for the next one. I love the characters and imaging what it would have been like to know the Bible heroes portrayed in these books. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Christine | 2/10/2014

    " Unfortunately neither the 2nd or 3rd book in the series lived up to level of the first. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Pegg | 2/8/2014

    " An enchanting tale of a time long gone, at the birth of Christianity. To be a Christian meant to risk your life. Live through it with Julia and Jacob as they seek to find truth in a chaotic world. Feel the sand and the fear. See the miracle of Saul's conversion. Learn the joy of following the Messiah. I highly recommend this book! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Trish | 1/26/2014

    " This is the third in their Acts of Faith series. I enjoyed this one just as much as the first two, especially once I realized that the title was referring to the conversion of Saul and was looking forward to seeing how the story would lead us to that point. This is a wonderful book that ties in people that Jesus met and spoke to with fictional characters and circumstances in an exciting and encouraging way. Definitely a strong finish to the series! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Chris | 1/19/2014

    " The Damascus Way is the third book in a series about the early days of the first Christians. I enjoyed the historical depictions of the time period. Life was precarious, even in the early days, for the first followers of Jesus. I'm not sure of the fundamental interpretation of those early Christians thought process, though, or am I just that skeptical? "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Michelle | 1/17/2014

    " I really love this series of books. They have all been very well written and are lovely stories. I really love reading about the early followers of Christianity and how they shared the message and carried on despite growing opposition to their faith. I hope there are further books in the series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Monica | 1/16/2014

    " This is the final book in the series and I found myself liking this book better than the others. Many of the characters still felt like they had the same personalities, but the story line was more of a page turner then the previous two books. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Francie ( glitter glu ) | 1/13/2014

    " did not like the series. i only read half of the third book because i just i am not liking these books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joy Gerbode | 1/4/2014

    " I think this was my favorite of this series ... good Biblical history, with a wonderful fiction story of romance, danger, even terror, and faith woven throughout the characters I have long known from Bible study. Truly enjoyable. "

    " I wasn't sure about this series when I started it, but I really like it. They're fictional accounts of people in the early church, some of them real and some imaginary. They keep getting more and more interesting, I think. "
