Currently Reading “A.D. 30” by Ted Dekker

I finished the book last night (Feb 21), and I must say, I am very impressed. This apparent shift of Genre will not hurt Ted Dekker, I’m sure. Well constructed and developed characters and of course the setting: Circa AD 30 in Palestine. From beginning to end this book speak of Jesus (Yeshau) directly or indirectly. Another wonderful book about The Christ and how He changes lives. I will be sure to check out Mr. Dekker’s earlier works and wait in anticipation for the next book in this series, A.D. 33. If this is the type of Genre you like, you will most certainly enjoys this.  4 1/2 Stars.


I have never read a Ted Dekker novel. It was suggested by a friend.

by Ted Dekker @TedDekker



~~~ Book Description ~~~~

A sweeping epic set in the harsh deserts of Arabia and ancient Palestine.

A war that rages between kingdoms on the earth and in the heart.

The harrowing journey of the woman at the center of it all.

Step back in time to the year of our Lord…A.D. 30.

The outcast daughter of one of the most powerful Bedouin sheikhs in Arabia, Maviah is called on to protect the very people who rejected her. When their enemies launch a sudden attack with devastating consequences, Maviah escapes with the help of two of her father’s warriors–Saba who speaks more with is sword than his voice and Judah, a Jew who comes from a tribe that can read the stars. Their journey will be fraught with terrible danger. If they can survive the vast forbidding sands of a desert that is deadly to most, they will reach a brutal world subjugated by kings and emperors. There Maviah must secure an unlikely alliance with King Herod of the Jews.

But Maviah’s path leads her unexpectedly to another man. An enigmatic teacher who speaks of a way in this life which offers greater power than any kingdom. His name is Yeshua, and his words turn everything known on its head. Though following him may present even greater danger, his may be the only way for Maviah to save her people–and herself.
