Description
Book 3 in the 3-book historical Christian fiction series by the New York Times bestselling author of Redeeming Love and A Voice in the Wind. The thrilling conclusion to the Mark of the Lion series.With Hadassah confined to the cells below the arena, facing death once again, and his sister Julia dying of a strange new illness and longing for a forgiveness beyond her reach, Marcus goes in search of God. Meanwhile, Atretes, the Germanic warrior, vows to move heaven and earth to find his son--the baby he thought was dead and whose life Hadassah saved--and take him back to Germania. Only one thing stands in his way: Rizpah, a Christian widow who has cared for the baby since his birth. Atretes did not count on Rizpah's fiery resistance to having "her son" taken away, nor is he prepared for the woman's strength and beauty. From their first meeting, the two are caught in a stormy battle of wills. Includes discussion questions suitable for individual use or group discussions. "Once more, Rivers transcends the genre."-- Booklist , starred review "Francine unlocks the longing in each one of us to connect to God in a deeper, life-changing way. No one reading her books will ever be the same again."-- Debbie Macomber "As we 'watch' Hadassah and Atretes struggle through first-century trials, we learn how to handle similar situations in the twenty-first century. The 'costumes' may vary, but our Lord does not change."-- Angela Hunt "Francine redefined Christian fiction--honest, unflinching, powerful, life-changing--demonstrating why storytelling is the most effective way to communicate God's truth. Every Christian novelist writing today owes a debt of gratitude to Francine Rivers for lighting the way."-- Liz Curtis Higgs "Francine Rivers writes from her heart to touch the hearts of her readers. Her books are essential reading for all who love Christian fiction."-- Bodie Thoene "Francine Rivers puts readers right into the history of the moment."-- Romantic Times
