Yes, this is another book review.
Sorry to all of ya'll who are not readers, but I made a resolution, and I am sticking to it!
Lost letters is a historical fiction, loosely based off of facts about the New Testament. This means that the author created a scenario and a character, who would be the vehicle of the narration of what occurred during New Testament time.
The main character is Antipas, an elitist living in the roman city of Pergamum. Idol worship and
emperor worship run rampant in this up and coming city. Through happenstance, Antipas begins exchanging letters with Luke, a disciple. The entire story is told through these letters that an archeologist discovers in the 20th century (fictional,) and discusses historical and theological matters pertaining to the Gospel of Luke.
It was an awesome read, and I have come away from it learning SO much. If I had a group wanting to do a study, I would read this book and read Luke, and discuss the two. It was a great way at looking at issues through a non believers eyes.
The book is well researched, and the author clearly states what points are absolutely fictitious and which points can be defended historically.
I've found that most book distributors carry this book online, so it should be easy to find!
