Hold the Faith

Rated 5.00/5 based on 1 reviews
There was no 'Plan B'!
Jesus was God's plan of salvation. After His crucifixion, His disciples, still growing in faith and understanding were all that remained to continue the truth.
Sixty years later most of the original disciples had been martyred. Had the plan been overthrown? Far from it! Living in Ephesus was the apostle John... teaching, travelling, writing. God's plan was in good hands. More

About Susan Preston

If you met Susan face to face would you like her?
What would you see?
An older woman with an engaging smile, soft brown eyes that 'tear up' when hearing of the hurts of others, and as you would discover after a while... a loyal friend who doesn't gossip and keeps your secrets.
Born and raised in the beautiful border town of Peebles in Scotland, she learned to 'make do and mend' as the old-fashioned saying went. Rationing in the UK lasted well into the 1950s and when they were no longer required, like granny's button box, the ration books were great fun for a small child to play with.
Over the years since then Susan has had a number of temporary occupations and a couple of very rewarding careers all of which has added to her understanding of human nature and shows in the characterisations in her novel.

Review by: Mariela Reiss on July 05, 2013 :
Have you ever wondered what life was like in the early years of the Christian Church, when believers lived under Roman rule and faced tests on every side? This fast- moving tale brings that time to life as we follow the story of Benjamin, the great-grandson of the apostle John, the last living apostle of Christ. As a young man living in Ephesus, raised in the Christian life, he faces tests of his faith at home and on his travels with the apostle John around the various church groups in Asia Minor. And just as his great-grandfather begins writing his account of Christ's life, Benjamin faces his greatest trial.
This book is historically researched but never overwhelms with detail. it is easy to read and really made me think of how i would act in similar circumstances. This is the first book in the series, so I look forward to reading more about Benjamin, John and their fellow- believers. A wonderful, inspiring story.
