Oasis Audio LLC #2: The Hidden Flame: abridged audiobook on CD

Abigail had lost everything - home and family - and left with little promise of a normal life. When she discovers the Messiah and joins his followers, she also discovers new meaning and purpose. Maybe she does have a future after all. But increasing persecution is scattering the burgeoning group "to the ends of the earth." And Abigail may have given her heart to the wrong man. Abigail, an orphan, has found the young brother she had thought was dead. Along the way she also has found a second family - those brave followers of the Jewish prophet Jesus. Under attack from several groups who hate them for their growing influence, these new Christians are spreading out from Jerusalem, taking their life-changing message with them. This further enrages the religious elite, and they engage whomever they can to stamp out this powerful new sect called "The Way." Two suitors desire the lovely Abigail's hand in marriage. One is a successful Hebrew merchant and widower, looking for a mother for his children. On the other side is the Roman soldier Linux, who is captivated by her winsome charm and could offer the sanctuary q maybe even the love - for which she yearns. But her heart has been captured by neither of these. Stephen, one of the leaders of "The Way," has a character and a faith that move her deeply, but his outspoken preaching has marked him for assassination. Will her faith and courage withstand heartbreak beyond comprehension? And then a glimmer of hope appears one she never would have foreseen. Abridged. 6 CDs. 7 hrs. Read by Aimee Lilly.

This series of the telling of the book of Acts in story form was above my expectations. The writer makes the story come to life. When the Holy Spirit came upon the believers, you could almost picture it in your mind. These two authors did a fantastic job in their research. It felt like I was living in the time of Acts.

I awoke this morning eager to pick-up where I left off on the fourth CD of this 6 CD audio book. Bunn and Oke had me hovering in my kitchen thinking of more tasks that I could do just to stay near the audio drama brought to my ears. This is the second book of the Acts Of Faith series authored by Davis Bunn and Janette Oke. They have taken Biblical accounts found in the book of Acts and woven them together with the fiction of their imaginations to create a story that brings life into characters of old. Never before have I thought about how people must have spread rumors saying that Peter killed Ananias and Sapphira; or thought of how the women must have felt when treated with loving respect by transformed men. This audio book allows you to step back into time and use your imagination to be there when God shows His power through miracles and His peace through a martyr's death. The account of firm faith, deep betrayal, and overwhelming loss will keep you riveted and give you a great appreciation for what our Brothers and Sisters went through in the early years of the Church. * * * * * The original book is published by Bethany House a division of Baker Publishing Group. This audio copy for review has been provided by Oasis Audio.
