I am awed and humbled by the five star review given to Hold the Faith by William Struse.
This book by Susan Preston is a touching story that makes you think about what it would have been like to be a believer in the era of the 1st century church. Walk with the apostle John and his great-grandson as their faith is tempered in the events which followed the death and resurrection of Jesus.
For the past several weeks I have been reading this story during our evening family reading time. What an impression this made on our children. The story, as seen through the eyes of the young hero, gave them a new perspective on those events. Each night it was they who asked for me to continue with the story.
I believe this story offers a wonderful perspective on the events which shaped the direction of the early church. With anticipation we wait for the next book in this series.
This meant that all I hoped for in presenting this book… worked!
