I keep forgetting to do this, but I want to take a moment to plug a wonderful book. I sat down and read Michelle Levigne's The Price
on Easter Sunday. I thought it was fitting and had saved it until then. Anyone who might like to read about the time of Jesus would do well to pick up this book. It's full of historical accuracy and, best of all, it tells the story of Jesus' death and resurrection from the view of a character not completely caught up in the action. It's powerful and heartwarming.Elisheva lost everything when her father was condemned as a heretic and her brother joined the rebels against Rome -- and was caught. Sold as a slave, she faced life as a prostitute, until a man sacrificed everything to redeem her. She thought she knew what love was, until Jesus came to Jerusalem...
You can pick it up here
and I highly recommend you do.
