And Their Numbers Grew JustRead Blog Tour

Welcome to the Blog Tour for And Their Numbers Grew by Naomi Craig & Donna E. Lane, hosted by JustRead Publicity Tours!

And Their Numbers Grew

Title: And Their Numbers Grew
Naomi Craig and Donna E. Lane
Bear's Place Publishing
Release Date: November 7, 2023
Biblical Historical Fiction

Four lives. Four destinies. One gospel.  

Fans of Mesu Andrews and Connilyn Cossette will love And Their Numbers Grew.  

If you love The Chosen, the story continues in And Their Numbers Grew.
Rumors of the risen Christ spread through Jerusalem like a wildfire—and the Sanhedrin is paying attention. 

Their efforts to stifle the name of Jesus only fuel the cause until a young Pharisee gets involved, breathing threats of imprisonment—or worse. Stephen’s brutal stoning accelerates the persecution and sends the faithful fleeing the city for their lives. 

They are afflicted in every way, but not crushed. As the fledgling church disperses, their numbers continue to grow. Now, the apostles must train the new believers in the ways and words of Jesus—and what it means to live in God's Kingdom here on earth. 

The Kingdom of God spreads to Damascus, Joppa, Caesarea, Antioch, and Tarsus through the testimonies of Ananias, Tabitha, and Barnabas. While an outraged Saul sets out for Damascus to arrest them all, the followers press on fervently, with the help of the Holy Spirit—though it may cost them their lives.  

Four disciples whose lives are intertwined, told in four novellas, chronicling the birth pains of the early church.

 Biblical Historical Fiction is not usually a genre that I read. I felt compelled to read this book, And Their Numbers Grew by  Naomi Craig and Donna E. Lane. I have read a few books by Naomi Craig and have always enjoyed her books. 

I will be truthful, I wasn't sure how much I would enjoy this book. Well, I was captivated from the very first novella. The book is Four Novellas in one book. I really LOVE how the Authors have taken the Biblical Hisotry of the Beginning of the Church and turned it into a Fiction Novella. The four main characters 
are  Stephen, Ananias, Barnabas, and Tabitha. Each has their own story and the stories are based on the Book of Acts. The book is intriguing as it has different storylines that also contain Romance and Spiritual aspects.  The flow from one novella to the next is smooth. I truly enjoyed this Fiction Book of the Early Christians. I HIGHLY recommend this book to those who want to learn more about the Early Church and enjoy Fiction books. GREAT BOOK!
