A.D. 33: A Novel | Ted Dekker

The sequel to A. D. 30 was just as good as the first.

I appreciate Christian fiction that isn't corny.

Maviah's story continues as she fights for the life of her adopted son and continues to try to understand the teachings of Yeshua.

Imagine how confusing it would have been to be around in Jesus' time without the benefit of history. Dekker does a great job describing what that might have been like.

eanderson Great review! I have this on Audible and I‘m excited for it. 1mo

As a Christian I sometimes feel bad for not liking Christian fiction. I often find it corny.

But A.D. 30 was fantastic!

It is the story of Maviah (a fictional character) who meets various biblical characters throughout her journey from outcast slave to queen of the desert.

I listened to the audiobook and, no matter where I hit pause, it was a cliff hanger I couldn't wait to get back to.

I have already ordered a copy of A.D. 33 😇

Timothy Keller is an autobuy author for me. He preaches in an understandable, wise and compassionate way with references to literature, pop culture and history. This was both an encouraging, challenging and educational read.

An interesting, worthwhile read.

One more book I have on loan from my aunt and then back to our regularly scheduled fantasy book overload!

Interesting information, but the first 100 pages (on the origins/credibility of the Gospels) went on a tad too long - definitely had more of a “textbook“ feel than the latter half of this book or Pitre's Jesus and the Jewish Roots of Mary. Still an interesting, accessible read.

Klou This sounds like it would make for an interesting read. And this author's name sounds familiar but I can't think why. 8mo
TheSpineView @Klou I thought the same thing. 8mo
Klou @TheSpineView I've had a look through his books on Goodreads and don't recognise any of them. I wonder what it could be. 8mo
TheSpineView @Klou If I think of it I will let you know. 8mo
Klou @TheSpineView thank you. Same here. 8mo

An incredibly powerful book (CW: it‘s Christian, if you can‘t tell from the title) written in the late 40s by a Black theologian and activist. It‘s short but meaty, naming many ways in which Black people have “their backs against the wall,” what Jesus and the Bible say, and naming and deconstructing diverse responses and actions. Excellent resource for a short group study.
