MEDIA ADVISORY, January 8 /Christian Newswire/ -- Faithful Journey, a historical novel based on Acts of the Apostles in the New Testament, continues to receive praise from reviewers as a modern retelling of Luke's remarkable first-century account.
In Faithful Journey, first-time author Warren Lamb paints a portrait of the lives and times of people who played roles in this 30-year early Church odyssey to spread the gospel. This portrayal is viewed through fictional, first-person voices that mirror and embellish Luke's familiar account.
"Told with equal measures of flair and solemn respect for Holy Scripture, Faithful Journey is highly recommended reading both for its spiritual and adventure-laden qualities." – The Midwest Book Review
"This is an interesting adaptation and moving account of the early days of the Christian Church, told from the very mouths of the players themselves." – Historical Novel Society.
"Faithful Journey is a unique retelling of the events of the book of Acts…a biblical novel worth reading. The book is recommended to both students and teachers."
– Protestant Reformed Theological Journal

Other favorable comments about the book by Christian authors and scholars:
Dr. Dennis E. Johnson, an expert on the book of Acts from Westminster Seminary California, says that Faithful Journey "hews closely to Luke's account, adding touches of fiction only to help us meet the flesh-and-blood people who carried the good news of Jesus from David's city to Caesar's city."
Dr. David Williams, author of the New International Bible Commentary—New Testament (Acts), comments that Faithful Journey "remains true to the narrative of Acts, but enhances the original text and injects new life into Luke's account of Christian beginnings."
Carol Ruvolo, author of His Witnesses to the World, a bible study on Acts, says "the emphasis on biblical and historical accuracy gives the book [Faithful Journey] a great deal of credibility, and the writing style is very clear and engaging."
