-------------------------------------------------------------------------------- This is how your review will appear: 5.0 out of 5 stars Foremost Historical Biblical Fiction, December 3, 2011 By Edwina E. Cowgill "book lover" (Georgia) - See all my reviews (VINE VOICE) (REAL NAME) This review is from: Yahshua's Bridge (Paperback) Mesmerizing, Moving Book I have just finished reading Yahshua's Bridge, award-winning author Sandi Rog's second book in the Iron and the Stone series. I have just returned to present day after spending days in Rome, AD 88. I witnessed unspeakable cruelty in the midst of beauty, hate eventually overcome by love and bitterness defeated by forgiveness. With brilliant descriptions of scenery and dialogue appropriate to the period, readers of Yahshua's Bridge will have no problem becoming involved in the lives of David and Alethea, their daughter, Elianna and the hero of the story, Alexander. Full of Biblical truths, this book centers around the message of forgiveness and salvation. I believe readers will be motivated, as I was, to examine their life for areas for which they need forgiveness. Equally as important, readers will be challenged to forgive people who they need to forgive. Written during a time of extreme challenges, in my humble opinion, Ms. Rog has written one of the foremost historical Biblical fictions of our time. This is a book you will want to read, and read again. I was provided a complimentary copy of this book for purposes of this review. I am not being compensated for this review.

YAHSHUA'S BRIDGE is the second in The Master¿s Wall series by Sandi Rog. Set in ancient Rome, the book takes place during the turbulent years of the early Christian church. Here we meet Alexander, a young slave who also happens to be the son of his master. The book spans twelve years of his life, full of interesting descriptions of Roman customs as well as the sometimes sordid truth of what life for a Christian was like at that time. His story is woven together with several other people, most importantly David and Alethea, who carry over from book one, and their young daughter Ellianne.In the beginning the story simply rolls along, chronicling Alexander¿s trials and adventures as he moves through various stages of life. About half way through, though, the book takes a riveting turn when we realize that each one of these adventures has great significance, not only for his future, but for the lives of everyone he holds dear. The dramatic climax had me riveted to the book.In the end, YAHSHUA¿S BRIDGE is a very satisfying read.

Best-selling author Robert Liparulo's opening endorsement, "Sandi Rog has done it again..." is spot on. She really has. Book Two in the "Iron and the Stone" series, and sequel to the award-winning "The Master's Wall," "Yahshua's Bridge" follows our beloved characters, David and Alethea, as they experience the trials and the victories of the early Church. This time, however, a previously supporting cast steps to center stage and transports us from Rome to Alexandria to the depths of desert-bound Egypt, and beyond. Young Alexander has come into his own. Tutored in the physical arts of the warrior and the spiritual disciplines of a believer by his mentor and de facto father, David, 'Zander' discovers himself and his surprising past--but that's not all. He also discovers his future in the person of David and Alethea's daughter, Elianna. Elianna's take on this? Well, she's not so sure. On her own journey of self-discovery, Elianna sheds the shackles of societal convention. When Zander disappears, her persistent hope in his return to the fulfillment of his promise dwindles. Meantime, David whisks her away from Rome in the charge of protectors on a journey from her enemies and from what he has become. But he doesn't count on the Lord's intervention, as so few of us do. Hold on for the ride, folks. Oh, yeah. It's dizzying. Ms. Rog's in-depth research pairs wonderfully with her exceptional storytelling ability to yield a gripping 1st-century tale of betrayal and love, failure and faith. You don't read about early Rome, you feel the paving stones beneath your sandals as you race with Elianna through the streets. The wind-blown sands of the Egyptian heartland prick your face, and you blink in the intense rays of its blinding sun with Zander as he seeks his heritage. Ultimately, the bittersweet conclusion will have you cheering and brushing the tear from your cheek at the same time. Few authors can achieve that so fluidly. Ms. Rog does. Highly recommended for the historical-Biblical fiction enthusiast. You won't be sorry you took the ride. Great read.

This was a book worth waiting for. It was so moving. The characters were so real, even Heaven felt real. To learn more about David and Alethea were such a good feeling to me. I loved watching Alexander grow up. Several things happened that I had not expected to happen, but it was natural. We all have to make decisions and some of the people in the book did not make good decisions. This is definitely a love story. A love of a Christian for their God. A love of a man and a woman. A love of holiness. I knew it would be graphic, but I knew that happened at that time. The writing is good, and the history of the time is magnificent. You feel the energy of the time. After reading this book, I'm a better Christian.

Sandi Rog has taken us into the heart of the early church, into the complicated lives of Yeshua's early followers. In a masterfully woven tale, Rog leads us into a number of fantastic settings. We experience the arena of lions where faithful believers met their fate in Rome. She takes us to the sand dunes of a sheik and the cave cities of Capadocia--all within the amazing, yet believable story of a young girl cradled by the love of her persecuted family, carried in the arms of her loving God. There were literally points in this story that I could not force the book from my hands. I was compelled to discover the fate of the characters Sandi had created, characters so committed to each other and to Yeshua--yet so confused when God acted in ways they couldn't explain. This book does not specifically tell of biblical characters, but it depicts a time in history when the Church was forming and the Gospel was gaining ground--in the face of its most severe persecution. This work of biblical fiction tells of real struggle, real faith, and a real God. It takes its place on the top shelf as one of my favorite reads this year.

This novel has something for everyone - adventure, action, romance. Sandi Rog knows how to weave a story that will draw you in. Admittedly not a "light" story as the authors explains, yet a picture of the life of a slave, a gladiator, and a Christian. The theme will resonate in your mind long after reading the last page.

I'd read and enjoyed the first book in this series, The Master's Wall earlier this year and hoped this one would be as good. Well, it was better and that really surprised me. You don't usually see that with book 2 of most any series. The story is great, the writing fantastic, and the characters will send you the full gamut of human emotions. It is not a light read, and doesn't shy away from bad stuff that's always been around, like child abuse, revenge, unexpected loss, betrayal, but it certainly leaves you thinking about how the characters endured their hardships, celebrated their triumphs, and long after you finish, you'll still be thinking about it. This book is strong enough to stand alone, but for the full effect, I recommend ordering book one, The Master's Wall too. I promise you'll end up getting it anyway when you finish this one and then kick yourself for having to read them backwards.
