The Liberty Bride – Mary Lu Tyndall

There are two time periods I can’t get enough of when it comes to Mary Lu Tyndall’s novels – her pirates and her romances set during the War of 1812. Luckily for me, the sixth title in the “Daughters Of The Mayflower” Series, “The Liberty Bride,” was set in those turbulent times between America and…

Shelter of the Most High – Connilyn Cossette

“We are surrounded by killers! Surrounded!” …So said Sofea to her cousin, after discovering what a city of refuge was in the land of Israel.  Imagine escaping a near death experience, only to find out that your rescuer and the home they’ve opened to you is a refuge for people who’ve taken the life of…

Michal – Jill Eileen Smith

Ever read a Bible story and go, “Oh, that person!  Why are they acting like that?” For years, that’s been my opinion of David’s wife, Michal.  We only get a short glimpse of her in Scripture, but it isn’t a favorable impression…at least not to me.  But opinions can change, and that’s happened when I…

Redeeming Grace – Jill Eileen Smith

Earlier in the year I read Sarai by Jill Eileen Smith and really enjoyed it, so I decided to dig into another one of her books, Redeeming Grace.  The Biblical story of Ruth is my favorite.  I’ve always viewed it like an ancient Cinderella, where loss and heartache turns into true love and the couple…

The Reckless – Mary Lu Tyndall

Frederick and Reena couldn’t be more different than night and day.  He’s a preacher, she’s a pirate and together, they make an odd couple.  Odd, because one is trying to follow God and the other is running as far away as they can from Him.  Throw in an old map that’s scattered among the Caribbean…

A Light On The Hill – Connilyn Cossette

Some Biblical Fiction novels focus on people from the Bible you’d recognize; like Ruth, Esther, Sarah, etc.  Then there are some that set fictional characters in a Biblical setting, and that’s the structure of A Light On The Hill by Connilyn Cossette.  With no particular story from the Bible to set the course, the author…

Live The Let-Go Life – Joseph Prince

We’ve all seen the t-shirts, tote bags and coffee mugs that boast, “Too blessed to be stressed.”  Maybe you even have one. (I do, too!) But after we pour the caffeine into our favorite mug, or, look in the mirror wearing a cute shirt, reality begs for an answer to the question, “How do we…

Behold The Man – Bodie and Brock Thoene

The last book in the Jerusalem Chronicles, Behold The Man, was such an eye opener for me.  Set during the time of Christ’s earthly ministry, it’s written from a Roman point of view and had this theme, “What did Rome think of Jesus?”  Honestly, every time I’ve read the gospels, it never occurred to me…

Take This Cup – Bodie and Brock Thoene

Take This Cup is the second book in the Jerusalem Chronicles, a biblical fiction series set at the time of Christ.  If you read my review of the first book (When Jesus Wept) you may remember I began this series for Easter and really enjoyed it.  The writing style and characters drew me into the…

When Jesus Wept – Bodie and Brock Thoene

For Easter, I wanted to read a Biblical Fiction series set in the New Testament.  I wanted something that would connect me to the time period Jesus lived in and maybe even offer new understanding in the way fiction does best.  I chose The Jerusalem Chronicles by Bodie and Brock Thoene and what can I…
