About this title:
Behind the men who shaped history are the heroes who forever changed it. The Scribe, the fifth and final book in the Sons of Encouragement series, beloved author Francine Rivers illuminates the life of Silas. Like the other Sons of Encouragement, this book tells the story of a lesser-known biblical character who made an impact on eternity. The Scribe tells the story of Silas, the man behind the spotlight who recorded most of the New Testament Scriptures we read today. In classic Francine Rivers style the story lets readers grasp the Scriptures in a whole new light—from a perspective never before imagined. Along the way readers will be captivated by the growth of the early church and the trials Paul suffers before he is martyred for the cause of Christ.
About the Author:
began her literary career at the University of Nevada, Reno, where she graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in English and journalism. From 1976 to 1985, she had a successful writing career in the general market, and her books were highly acclaimed by readers and reviewers. Although raised in a religious home, Francine did not truly encounter Christ until later in life, when she was already a wife, a mother of three, and an established romance novelist.
Francine and her husband, Rick, live in Northern California and enjoy the time spent with their three grown children and every opportunity to spoil their grandchildren.
Chris Fabry animates and freshens the story of Silas, a little-known scribe who recorded most of the New Testament scriptures. Fabry uses subtle inflections, Middle Eastern accents, and an urgent tone to tell Silas's story. Fabry's powerful characterizations of the anguish experienced by the Apostle Paul, and to a lesser extent Peter, during their final days are especially believable, as is their request to Silas--that he pray for them to remain faithful unto death. Listeners will be fascinated by the story of Silas's faith, the trials and temptations of early Christians, and the martyrdom of the apostles--all of which exalt Jesus Christ and reveal the steadfastness of God during the most extreme trials.
