The project has disseminated reviews and other information about Christian books since the start of the Millennium. We regret that it is no longer possible to sustain it.
Escape from Danger
by Gill Jacobs
Publisher:Day One Publications
Naomi is a young girl living in Damascus during the Roman occupation. She runs away from her violent stepfather and her home and eventually finds herself living in Jerusalem with a family who are employed by a leading Pharisee called Saul. She becomes a witness to many of the events that we read about in the gospels and in the book of Acts, but they are given a new slant as they are seen through the eyes of an outsider.
Naomi's personal story takes her from unbelief to repentance and faith in this story aimed at older girls. Those who are familiar with their Bibles will enjoy recognising familiar characters, and those who are not will find out about the events surrounding the Crucifixion, the Resurrection and the birth of the early church. A good Sunday School prize.
