Praise for The Eye of God
“Many of Jesus’ parables are woven into the story. Some dialog feels too modern for the time but that might have been an attempt to reach the modern reader. The novel is primarily about Simon Peter and his relationship with the Messiah, Jesus, even at the expense of his own family. It is well written and should appeal to those who enjoy stories based on the bible.”
—Debra Spidal, Historical Novel Review Online
“... a truly impressive work of scholarship. It”s an easy read in a winsome style.”
—Thomas Trzyna, Professor of English, Seattle Pacific University.
“This well-researched depiction of the life of Simon as he becomes Peter, “fisher of men,” is an engrossing tale—full of savor. I was totally engaged in this imaginative and intriguing story. There are so many passages that have lingered in my thoughts because of the authors elegant and precise descriptions. Her background research and references also add much to this great depiction of life during Roman times.”
“Excellent book. Written from the perspective of St. Peter who meets Jesus and starts following him. The book is biblically accurate, following the Gospel of Mark in the text. Makes the life of Jesus and Peter come alive.”
“Truly well written and compelling. The people of the Bible brought to life. I really feel as though I have a clearer understanding of the cultural climate in the middle east during the life of Christ, and why His news was so compelling.”
