Rejected and alone, Maviah, the outcast daughter of a Bedouin sheikh, is the only one left to protect her people. Traveling across the barren desert with two of her father’s warriors, Saba and Judah (a Jew), Maviah must reach Herod with the dagger of Varus, proof that she is who she says she is.
Maviah hears stories of Jesus and seeks Him out hoping that He might save her,. She is fascinated with the man Jesus as He is not exactly what she expected but later discovers that He is exactly who she needs. What a wonderful depiction of life in the biblical era. As brutal as the world is, filled with power, greed, violence and death, the peace Jesus brings makes the bad seem bearable.
Ted Dekker mesmerizes with this unique story of Jesus who cares for the outcast and turns his/her life upside down. Reading about Jesus from Maviah’s point of view was almost like being right there with Him. Don’t miss this experience and read A.D. 30.
