Priscilla and Aquila will experience love and untold challenges in marriage, and not only for matrimonial reasons. They'll join others in the forging of a new way of faith in a Roman world in Priscilla and Aquila, a novel by Lois T. Henderson and Harold Ivan Smith.

I've enjoyed other novels by the late Henderson about biblical figures, namely, Miriam, Ruth, and Abigail--whose stories are rather popular material for fictional retellings. I think it's safe to say that novels about Priscilla and Aqu

I stumbled across this book while skimming through Amazon looking for Biblical Fiction similar to Brock and Bodie Thoene's A.D. Chronicles. Lois T. Henderson, who I'd never heard of before, wrote a collection of books about women in the Bible. Intrigued, I purchased one, choosing Priscilla & Aquila because they're my favorite Bible couple.

Read this book several years ago but I remember liking it quite a bit. I don't think I finished it though.

Priscilla lived at a time when women were thought to be ignorant. They weren't praised for scholarly accomplishments. She was very fortunate to have a grandfather who taught her to read, write, and think for herself. He ignited her desire to learn and have deep conversations about many subjects.
Upon being matched with Aquila, Priscilla tries to settle into an ordinary household routine, but quickly lets Aquila know that she isn't an ordinary woman. As this couple experiences heartaches and joy
