As historical fiction, the book intends to educate. The stories accurately reflect that era’s culture and historical context.
The purpose of this book is to imagine what a First Century person who met Jesus might have thought and felt, and the impact that encounter may have produced.
What are people saying about this book?
“Cheryl Wills has a wonderful way to express the faith of biblical people as that faith arises in response to being with Jesus. I felt like I was there.”
Nancy HC Ward, JoyAlive.net , Catholic author and speaker
“Cheryl Wills has written a beautiful, compelling book – a collection of ‘you are there’ stories. It’s especially rich in human descriptive language that speaks to every emotion. It will confirm your faith, affirm your hope, and draw you into a closer relationship with a God that loves you. A ‘must have’ at your bedside or prayer group. The book is a tribute to a writer that really ‘gets it.’”
Patricia L. Mitchell, Teacher (retired)
