From the back cover: They call her the Queen of the Outcasts. Maviah, a woman whose fate was sealed on her birth by this world-unwanted, illegitimate, female, a slave-subject to the whims of all. But then she met a man named Yeshua who opened her eyes. She found strength in his words, peace from the brutal word around her. Because of what he taught her, she has gathered her own traveling kingdom of outcasts deep in the desert, wielding an authority few have seen.
But when her growing power threatens the rulers around her, they set out to crush all she loves, leaving her reeling as a slave once more. She must find Yeshua to save her people, but when she does, she will be horrified to discover that he faces his own death.
Enter a story full of intrigue, heart-wrenching defeat, uncompromising love and staggering victory-one that re-examines everything you thought you knew about the heart of Jesus’s stunning message and the power that follows for those who follow his easily forgotten way.
A.D. 33 picks up where A.D. 30 left off. Maviah is now queen and doing her best to ensure peace according to what she learned from Jesus. However there are events that are occurring that threaten that peace and Maviah sets out to find Jesus again and gain a fresh filling. However what do you do when you find that Jesus is on His way to the cross? How does faith continue? Mr. Dekker has given us a thought-provoking story of faith when it is challenged and pushed to the extreme. Mr. Dekker has provided healthy amounts of scripture to give us the impact of Biblical wisdom. On top of all of this the story itself is very exciting. This is a book that will capture your attention and keep it as you keep flipping pages as fast as you can read to keep up with the story.
