What was it like meeting St. Paul in Corinth — seeing him work with his hands and hearing his passionate words that revealed his profound and unbreakable connection to the living Christ? And what was it like to be a girl, highly educated and gifted and in love in mid-first century, in the Greco-Roman world? You will find the answers to these questions hidden among the layers of eros and agape in A New Love.
“A New Love is a gift shaped by solid scholarship and beautiful storytelling.” — Greg Garrett, author of The Prodigal and Entertaining Judgement
“Katerina Whitley has succeeded in crafting a novel which deftly portrays the earliest years of the Christian faith. The plot, while following scripture, offers a sense of real people who suffer real tragedies, whose lives are made new by the gospel. She captures a moment in history before the Bible was written, before the creeds were crafted. While reading this novel, I found myself engaged, and discovered that my own faith was quickened.” — Mary C. Earle, author of The Desert Mothers, Days of Grace, and Beginning Again
