I began reading books by Ted Dekker when my daughter was in high school. He has a style that grabs your attention from the beginning and makes it difficult to put the book down.
The story is from the viewpoint of Maviah, a Bedouin slave. She is sent to bargan with King Herod in Sepphoris so her people may be set free. She has a couple of traveling companions, one of which want to go to see the man who is the Messiah, Yeshua. Along her journey, Maviah actually crosses Yeshua's path herself and this changes her life forever.
I identified with the fear that Maviah felt along the way and the feeling of the need to rely on concrete things and the love of the Messiah.
I was given this book by NetGalley and Faithwords in exchange for my honest review.
