A.D. 30 book review
Title: A.D. 30: a novel
Author: Ted Dekker
Genre: Historical Biblical Fiction
Plot: Maviah, the illegitimate child of Bedouin sheikh, is sent to Jerusalem. Her traveling companions Saba, a quiet and steadfast warrior, and Judah, a passionate and courageous Jew, believe Maviah can help save their people from massacre .Can Maviah convince King Herod to aid her, before it's too late?
This book is set during the time when Jesus had begun His earthly ministry. Maviah, Judah, and Saba meet Jesus half-way through the book. It was interesting to see what a gentile thought of Jesus words and miracles.
This book has great descriptions, so it was easy to imagine how life was during that time. I also liked learning about the culture of the Bedouin and how Jesus' life affected them.
This book ended on a big cliff hanger so I'm looking forward to reading A.D. 33 soon.
My rating: 3
