The Centurion’s Wife is the first book in the Acts of Faith series.
While reading it, I couldn’t help but think of Francine Rivers’ Mark of the Lion series, which is also set in the first century during the early years of Christianity. If you enjoyed that series I recommend The Centurion’s Wife to you.
I look forward to following Leah and Alban in future books. While author Davis Bunn is new to me, I have enjoyed Janette Oke’s books in the past, and I am excited to see how the story unfolds as Mrs. Oke explores a Biblical setting for the first time.

I just picked this up and am so looking forward to it. Love anything of Janette Oke’s. She and Davis Bunn (used to go by T. Davis Bunn) have collaborated before.
Heading over now to read your review…I love historical fiction

I just finished the book and loved it, and recommend it to anyone interested in not just Christian historical fiction,but those interested in walking in faith. In the days ahead, we will have to make some of the same choices and walk the same narrow path these first ones did. I’m looking forward to the rest of the series!
I was captivated by this book. The Centurion’s Wife I could not put down– just one more chapter– which led to two days in finishing the book. Thanks to the authors for a heartwarming Godly book.
