BETHEL, Conn., Feb. 11, 2020 /Standard Newswire/ -- 'Serah: The Daughter of Rebekah and Lucius,' is the latest novel in the critically acclaimed 'Good Thief' Christian historical novel series by Author Barry Connolly. All three books describe the lives and challenges of the earliest Christians and are an inspiring read in preparation for Holy Week and Easter. The trilogy is profiled on a new web site: www.TheGoodThief.net.
The most recent novel, 'Serah: The Daughter of Rebekah and Lucius' introduces us to the spirited Serah Corvinius, a young Christian girl coming of age in the shadow of the Emperor Claudius's Rome. Serah is the daughter of a Jewish artisan and a former Roman centurion who follow the Way of Jesus. She leads an idyllic life on her father's equestrian estate outside Rome, where magnificent horses are raised and trained for competition in the Circus Maximus. But when a powerful and vindictive senator threatens her family's welfare and her own life, Serah is compelled to flee to her mother's homeland in Judea. In Jerusalem, she experiences for the first time the extreme prejudice and danger facing the followers of Jesus Christ. It is an adventure that will test her faith, challenge her courage, open her heart, and change her life.
'Serah,' continues the journey set in motion with the author's first two books: 'The Good Thief,' which tells the story of the penitent thief crucified alongside Jesus on Good Friday, and 'On the Road to Damascus: The Story of Rebekah and Lucius,' which recounts the persecution of the earliest followers of Jesus by the Sanhedrin and Saul of Tarsus.
