Janette Oke has more than thirty million copies of her books in print. She has also won both the Gold Medallion Award and the Christy Award for fiction. Janette and her husband, Edward, live in Alberta, Canada. But this last book in the trilogy - loved it! Janette Oke and Davis Bunn make a good writing duo. I liked how we got to see the progression of the characters in their faith, while also seeing the events from the book of Acts take place (although I would've liked to have seen an appearance by Leah, though I understand why that didn't happen). And, quite honestly, while reading about these characters, it was a reminder to me about certain things in my own walk with the Lord.

Janette Oke, Davis Bunn. The book intertwined a number of key New Testament people with the main characters of the book in an interesting way. The careful attention to setting and geography of the land was informative. Although the Spirit's work is life-changing and dramatic, I was a bit put out by the instant decisions of some of the characters.

I re-read the final chapter over and over again. So many feelings about this entire series. First off, when I read the synopsis of this one I thought we were going to only get the perspectives of Julia and Jacob and get updates of the other characters through them...sooo I was very pleased to see that we also continued the perspectives of Linux and Abigail, 5 years after the events of the last book. I love how each of these books led up to a big event in the rise of Christianity, first the day of Pentecost, then the stoning of Stephen and finally is this book, the conversion of Saul. The romances that were created in this book were so sweet and moving YET the authors never lost their purpose which was the ultimate love story, Christ's love for us. This was never overshadowed. I appreciated that the love that was created between the characters were built off of tender gazes, and slight touches and kind words. Nothing too overpowering, because anything extra wasn't needed.

The winning storyline for me was the development of Linux's character. I didn't really think much about him in the first book, but in the second book and this book I really couldnt wait for his scenes. In the second book when he was looking at the way Abigail looked at Stephen, he said that he had never done anything to deserve to be looked at in that way. 5 years later...he has done a lot of things to deserve that kind of love! I'm glad they kept him as a Roman Officer, because realistically God needs his people in all jobs. I love how his relationship with Dorcus was built. I love how they took two books to establish a connection between him and Abigail. There's something so real about a relationship that came from rejection, loss, grief, separation and uncertainty.....sigh....just sooo many feelings! I have these books in Kindle but I think I"m going to buy hardcover now!

I have so enjoyed getting to know Stephen and Abigail,Dorcas and Martha. Each chapter was full of suspense and Biblical truths that I got a vision of what life was like for new believers in the way. Many trials and hardships are seen yet their trust and faith in God grows and touches others lives. This speaks to me about how our lives should improve others and bring them to the Lord. Much thought was given to this series and written well. I would encourage others to read this series, you won't be disappointed.

Janette Oke has collaborated with Davis Bunn in creating a wonderful read. The story behind is over the top. The rest is HIStory in a fabulous way of knitting friendships of early believers along the way. This being the last of the series makes it hard to finally put it away. I wish it could have continued longer. It ends a little quicker than I hoped, but, all in all, it was a wonderful series. Great books. Interesting stories and a delightful new way of looking at the Disciples and their families and friends.

"The Damascus Way" was my favorite to the series. I was hooked. I enjoyed how each character was written. Finally someone gives a "What ever happened to...?" to the lady from the well. Germany's story has always captivated me...I know there was creative licensing with her but I have always wondered whatever happened to her after that fateful day. This book to me was filled with so many stories of healing, redemption, encouragement and personal growth. The description of th terrain...I could see it all...and that storm! I also liked the presentation/description of Saul's conversion. There numerous witnesses to that fateful moment. Also thank you for sharing Phillip's ministry. I did not have any idea of his ministry.
This book was well written! I could not put it down but I didn't want it to end. It convicted me to pray more fervently as I read of Abigail's prayer life. Thank you for writing "The Damascus Way".

I actually started this series just before the movie Risen came out, which made me wonder if the movie was based on the first book in this series. Alas, it wasn't. But this last book in the trilogy - loved it! Janette Oke and Davis Bunn make a good writing duo. I liked how we got to see the progression of the characters in their faith, while also seeing the events from the book of Acts take place (although I would've liked to have seen an appearance by Leah, though I understand why that didn't happen). And, quite honestly, while reading about these characters, it was a reminder to me about certain things in my own walk with the Lord. Nothing seemed contrived; there were no pat answers. I like that! It all fled naturally, nothing seemed forced. Great book!
