St John’s Ladies Book Club will meet on Saturday 20th September at 7:00pm so please put this date in your diaries! We will be discussing the first two books of The Mark Of the Lion trilogy by Francine Rivers. They are ‘ A Voice in the Wind’ and ‘An Echo in the Darkness’. The venue has yet to be confirmed.
A Jewish Christian teenager Hadassah is captured at the fall of Jerusalem in 70AD and is taken to Rome to be sold as a slave. A pagan chieftan Atretes is captured in Germany and taken to Rome to train as a gladiator. The lives of Hadassah and Artretes intertwine with those of the family that Hadassah serves. Each person has to face up to who they are and what they believe in. This story shows how the Lord works through those faithful to Him, even in the darkness that was decadent Rome at that time. A story of His grace and mercy, also of love, forgiveness and redemption.
You can buy the trilogy from 10ofthose.com ( Christian booksellers in Leyland ) – or from Amazon, or Kindle. A few sets will be available to borrow, so if you’re interested, then please get in touch via the office.
