Three-time Christy Award winner T. Davis Bunn collaborates with the beloved Janette Oke to evoke the spirit of the original followers of the Way.

Abigail has lost everything and is left with little promise of a normal life. Then, when she discovers the Messiah and joins his followers, she finds new meaning and purpose. Maybe she has a future after all. But increasing persecution is scattering the burgeoning group “to the ends of the earth,” and Abigail learns that she may have given her heart to the wrong man.

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 Abigail’s faith and courage withstand a heartbreak beyond comprehension?

Quotes & Awards

  • “Oke and Bunn bring a wonderful combination of creativity and masterful prose in the second installment in the Acts of Faith series. The vivid scenes and the gripping emotion, set against the backdrop of first-century Christian persecution, will have readers contemplating the strength of their own faith in traumatic times.”

    RT Book Reviews

  • “More than a simple love story, given miracles, martyrdom, and men on a mission, this is the perfect tale for readers who enjoy such biblical epics as Henryk Sienkiewicz’s Quo Vadis, Lew Wallace’s Ben Hur, and Lloyd C. Douglas’ The Robe.”

    " 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. "

    " Usually I like historical fiction but I had a hard time getting into this book. The characters just didn't seem very well developed and things jumped forward quickly and therefore just couldn't get into the book. I wont' be reading the others in the series. "

    " This is the second book in the Acts of Faith series. I'm not usually a huge fan of religious fiction, but I read the first one, The Centurion's Wife, for a book club and enjoyed it so much, I wanted to check out the second installment. I think the thing I find so compelling about this series is that it's not just a statement of faith, it focuses a lot on the Judean and Roman cultures during the first century. Plus, it deals with the historical factors as well. It strikes me as being a well researched, intelligent and faith promoting project. This one wasn't quite as good as the first one, but I still enjoyed it very much and am looking forward to finding out what happens with the purely fictional characters, as well as seeing how the authors present certain events for the religious and historical figures. I give this one four stars and recommend it for anyone open to a good, clean, uplifting read. "
