Faithful Journey is a historical novel based on the Acts of the Apostles, one of the Bible's most recognized adventure stories.
Christian tradition says that Luke, a Greek physician from Syrian Antioch, wrote Acts sometime before Jerusalem was defeated in 70 AD. Acts is the second half of his two-part book, the first being the Gospel According to Luke.
The novel is a modern portrait of the lives and times of people who played roles in this New Testament odyssey. This portrayal is viewed through a series of fictional, first-person voices that mirror and embellish Luke's familiar and remarkable story.
