Transported two thousand years into the past, readers are introduced to Antipas, a Roman civic leader who has encountered the writings of the biblical author Luke. Luke's writings spark Antipas's interest, and a correspondence transpires between them. As the two delve deeply into each other's lives, Antipas begins to see things in fresh ways, causing him to rethink the values upon which his life had been founded. In due course, a gladiatorial contest in Pergamum forces difficult decisions on both the Christians in that city and on Antipas himself.

Talk about taking a time machine back to the times of the early church! I actually felt like i was right there. The language used is so descriptive and flows so well that the imagination just follows. It gave me a clear and accurate idea of what life may have been like for early christians in and around roam after Jesus was killed and the gospels were being written. A good read historically, spiritually and academically as a lot of the accounts echo what the text books say.
"a great read to a compelling dialogue"
the story that is presented here is a great dialogue mostly between Luke the position, and antibiotics, benefactor of the city of Pergamum. the story is both compelling and motivating to become the Christ follower that God wants of each of us. boldness, courageousness, and a choice to who you will serve is presented here. The reader of this book could not have done a better job. I highly recommend the audiobook.
"Troy and the reading of The Lost Letters"
Troy narrated well. The story was rather excellent. Not as good as some books but alright.
