I began reading another Bodie and Brock Thoene book this week entitled Second Touch from the A.D. Chronicles series. It was copyrighted in 2004 and published by Tyndale House Publishers, Inc., Wheaton, IL in association with the literary agency of Alive Communications, Inc., Colorado Springs, CO.
Part of the story deals with leprosy and its affect on major characters. I began to cry at one point and then decided to pray for a real situation. A young lady I know posted a prayer request on Facebook. She contracted the Corona Virus and wants prayer for the pain to leave and for her sense of taste and smell to return. So, I did pray and called other pray-ers from our church.
Before writing this post, I checked on the internet. Leprosy does exist in the world, but is treatable by antibiotics. If caught soon enough, there are little to no effects. If not, then there may be damage to skin and nerves, etc. We are blessed not to live in times of hopelessness for this dreadful disease.
I’m enjoying this book, Second Touch. I feel like I’m understanding Scripture better because of the examples of the Jewish and Roman cultures when Jesus was in Israel as a man in His early thirties.
I’ve not read the first book in the A.D. Chronicles series. I’ll have to search for a copy. Do you have a favorite author or two you’d like to name for us?
May God bless you!
