Just released!

Akeldama

Step into the pages of this historical novel of Faith. Meet beautiful Yo-hannah, whose tortured past has imprisoned her body and heart. Walk in the stooped steps of Veronica, whose mysterious malady has made her ceremonially unclean. Thirst for living water with a half-breed whose checkered past is about to catch up with her.

Thrown together from dead-ends, each woman seeks answers to her own desperation. Will Yo-hannah find the peace she craves? Can an unclean woman receive a touch of mercy? Where can a despised half-breed go to be made whole? And what about old Hadessa, whose enigmatic past is as mysterious as the young rabbi who crosses each woman’s path?

Each woman’s life and future hinges on the Nazarene’s answer to one question: Who are you?

What readers are saying:

Akeldama is a book rich in descriptions of Bible history. If there is one thing I want when I read a book, it is to feel as if I am there, tasting every taste, smelling every scent on the breeze and, yes, even feeling the agonizing emotions that the characters are feeling. Through Akeldama I experienced the forgiveness, the healing power and the heartbreak that each woman who encountered Christ felt. I could place myself in their lives and sing the Hallel right along with them! Thank you, Kristine Lowder, for allowing me to encounter Christ in such a powerful way.

I have read only a few Christian novels worthy of the name. My favorite Christian authors are C.S. Lewis, Stephen R. Lawhead, Joseph F. Girzone, and now Kristine Lowder. I must tell you that her book, Akeldama, touched me so deeply that I cried like a baby as I read the final chapter. Yes, the final chapter is about the resurrection of Jesus Christ—not a new subject. But something in her telling of it blessed me with joy, gratitude, awe, and wonder. I cannot remember a time when I wanted to re-read a book as soon as I finished it. Treat yourself to a great book!
