Very vivid and engaging description of what it must have been like at that time. You definitely kept my interest.

This is masterfully written. I love the way you weaved in and out of the two scenes and the descriptions intertwined. I felt like I was watching a movie. Goosebumps at the end.

I could really feel the intensity of the story in the dialogue and descriptions. Could almost hear the music swelling in the background as Saul got closer. Great story!

Very nice job. Well written and communicated. The Pharisee being Saul, was a creative touch. God bless.

Goose bumps! This was really good! I like the quick scene changes; they really kept this moving at a brisk pace.
A very well told, fast paced story--easy to believe it could have happened just this way.

You had my FULL attention at this line:

“This is a difficult time, but the Lord is in control. Although this situation seems beyond our comprehension, He has permitted it for a reason.”

Great, stimulating writing!

I could see this as a movie! The pace and action is great, it keeps moving along, I love the character of Rachel. Great writing.

Wow! Talk about bringing the scripure to life. You built this "behind the scenes" story with such terrific imagery, tension, resolve, and Biblical and historical accuracy that I read it spellbound. Wonderful creativity. Can you tell I loved it?

Wow! Can you imagine if this story was fast-forwarded to modern times--now? Where would 'the church' meet? Can you hear the soldiers and humvees and tanks? Masterful film-style writing, from start to finish.

I liked the scene changes, masterfully done in a way that I didn't lose track of the story. I also loved how you incorporated Saul - goosebumps indeed!

I enjoyed the historical colour of the story. I read like a film. Thanks.
Well done! I felt like I was part of the story watching as each scene unfolded.
