Bringing First Century Christianity to Life

Prairie Grace by Marilyn Bay Wentz
This book will take you back in history to the planes of Colorado when the pioneers were moving west into Indian lands. She puts you into the heart of the struggles and attitudes between these two cultures. It is worth the read.

Land of My Dreams by Norma Gail
This book put me in the heart of Scotland with Norma’s wonderful descriptions. Now I want to visit there. The love story was touching and exciting.

Pearl in the Sand by Tessa Afshar
This book tells a beautiful and believable story about Rahab. I walked with this woman through the abuses and battles she fought to become a respected and loved leader.

Martha by Diana Wallis Taylor
This book brings the characters of Martha, her sister Mary and her brother Lazarus to life. The book took me back to the site of their home I visited in Bethany.

I am Nujood, Age 10 and Divorced by Nujood Ali with Delphine Minoui
Although this story is very disturbing, I could not put it down until the end. Nujood was a determined and brave young lady in a culture abusive to women.

When Mockingbirds Sing, by Billy Coffey
This book keeps one riveted to the story of a troubled child and how she is led by a voice and vision that gets her into trouble with the people in the town where she just moved with her family.

Mark of the Lion Series by Francine Rivers
This series of three novels is one of my favorites set in the first century. You won’t be disappointed.

Unveiled, Unashamed, Unshaken by Francine Rivers
These three novellas about Biblical women will keep you reading to the end.

Unveiling Islam by Ergun Mehmet Caner and Emir Fethi Caner
This book will help any Christian who wants to have a more meaningful conversation with Muslim friends. It’s worth the read.

Jesus is Shalom by Joseph A. Grassi
This is one of my favorite books for personal and group study.
