Daughter of Rome

By Tessa Afshar


When the daughter of a Roman General meets a disinherited Jewish immigrant, neither one can dream of God's plan to transform them into the most influential couple of the early church. Nor can they anticipate the mountains that will threaten to bury them. Their courtship unwittingly shadowed by murder and betrayal, Priscilla and Aquila slowly work to build a community of believers, while their lives grow increasingly complicated thanks to a shaggy dog, a mysterious runaway, and ruthless foe desperate for love. But when they are banished from their home by an emperor, they must join forces with an unusual rabbi named Paul and fight to turn treachery into redemption.

Book Takeaway:

Priscilla and Aquila inspire us to fight for our marriages, and create deeper community. They challenge us to love more deeply, forgive more radically, and offer unreasonable grace. Daughter of Rome calls us to be tougher in faith, more resilient toward hardship and spiritual attack, and stronger in our resolve to contend for the faith.

Why the author wrote this book:

Although we know little about this extraordinary couple, what we do know is spell-binding: they saved Paul’s life, worked together in business and ministry, and became influential spiritual leaders through some of the most harrowing years of the church’s history. Their marriage must have been remarkable! An exceptional woman, a powerful marriage bond, a courageous couple who faced danger more than once for the cause of Christ. It’s the stuff good stories are made of.
