Inspired by true accounts of early Christians, the followers of the Way of course being those who recognize Jesus as the Messiah, is a fiction book of events that quite possibly could have occurred during that time. Written both beautifully and demonstrably, Abigail is an impressive and brave woman. Bunn and Oke mix affection and knowledge, bereavement and awakening into a charming and memorable book that you can lose yourself in. I'm a big fan of historical fiction, especially those that are about the early church. I very much enjoy reading plausible stories of what may have happened during those times. Reading about the apostles and other Biblical people through Bunn's & Oke's words, as well as the characters imagined, was a bit like being there myself. In addition, I learned more about the culture at that time in history, adding to the knowledge I already had. Seeing that this is actually the second book in the 'Acts of Faith' series by Bunn & Oke (the first being The Centurion's Wife) I did not find myself confused in the least. This book is able to stand on its own, and seemingly has its own plot - obviously many of the characters are the same, but one is not left disconnected and honestly unless I had known there was another book in the series, would not have guessed there was a previous one penned. The Centurion's Wife is definitely on my to read list know as I found the characters in The Hidden Flame were both thoughtful and animated.

After many years of reading secular fiction, I wanted to read something that was better for my faith. I really enjoyed this book. I see my own struggles with my faith in that of the main character. I would highly recommend this book.

The Hidden Flame takes you back in time to the early church. You can feel the heat of the day and the cobblestones under your feet as you walk through the streets of Jerusalem with Abagail. She is a quiet, unassuming, gentle lady who has two suitors vying for her hand in marriage. The history of the early church comes alive. You feel Abagail's joy and pain as she experiences celebration and hardships during the growth of the early church and the beginning of persecution of the followers of The Way. I love the way Bunn & Oke show the traditions and daily lives of the Jews using both fictional and Biblical characters. This narrative explores the lives of the early believers in ways I'd never thought of. Who were the families of Ananias and Sapphira? Were they angry at God and Peter for the death of the couple? What about Stephen's family? Were they proud of his sacrifice or confused by what God had asked of him? As the authors explore these questions in this fictional story, they present many truths and make the characters come alive. The Hidden Flame is the second in the Acts of Faith series. I haven't read the first book The Centurion's Wife but do plan to pick it up soon. However, it is not necessary to read the first in the series to be able to follow the story in this book. It was a book that was hard for me to put down. I'll be looking forward to reading more in this series! *Thank you to Bethany House for providing this book for me to review. All opinions expressed are mine.

I loved this e-book. Go with the followers of Christ in this amazing journey of diciples. The road was paved with much joy, but to be a follower of Christ was not as easy as today, it was a road filled with trials and tribulations. I was sad when I had completed the three books, wish their could have been more books in the series. I will certainly read them again!

It was a good book to read but I would have done a different ending, but Iknow there is another book so it might fit when I start to read it. Overall it is very good series to read and follows the bible very close.
