    If you've ever read Francine Rivers' Mark of the Lion trilogy and have ever wanted to read something else like it, this book has the same feel without all the gladiator games. Ancient Corinth/Athens, underhanded Romans, the early church. Skilled writing. ...

    I have thoroughly enjoyed every book I have read by Tessa Afshar, but Thief of Corinth is my new favorite! Reading this book was like stepping back in time to first-century Corinth, accompanied by Ariadne, a bold young woman who had run away from Athens to her father?s home there. S...

    I won the kindle version in a Goodreads drawing and I purchased the audible version. Tessa Afshar is an excellent Biblical fiction author. I?ve received an additional blessing listening to her books, as I?ve grown even more intimate with our Lord. The narrator was outstanding as we...

    Tessa Afshar has become an author that I one-hundred percent recommend. I hardly have to wonder anymore if I'll love her books; each new one I read is phenomenal. Thief of Corinth was beautiful. It was deeply emotional, as well as an intriguing, adventurous page-turner. I'm not sure...

    Thief of Corinth, by Tessa Afshar, is a compelling story of a courageous young girl who yearns to be loved and accepted. (And don't we all?) Although other novels of this author are based on true Biblical stories, this book is a fictional story set in first-century Corinth and readers ...

    I enjoy books that also teach me about history or society, while I am reading for pleasure. Thief of Corinth certainly fulfills both goals. Neighbors Dionysius, Justus, Theodotus, and Ariadne grew up together as family and neighbors, but with quite different personalities, abilities, ...

    Beautiful. Moving. Fast paced. All the feels. ?The Thief of Corinth? by Tessa Afshar is all these things and more! I took two courses specifically on 1 and 2 Corinthians in college, so my heart has a special place for these books of the Bible. Paul is also one of my favorite Bible ...

    Some novels leave you feeling so full you don?t have room for your own words. For real though, if I could I'd fill this review with only quotes from the book but I'll leave it to you guys to explore ;-) Tessa Afshar has truly written as a masterpiece! In "Thief of Corinth" we expe...

    Tessa Afshar is one of the best writers of biblical fiction today. Her stories are well researched and well told. I love the characters she creates. Ariadne is a spirited young woman who tries to be true to herself in a time when women were property. She is a lively, athletic young wom...

    What I love about Tessa Afshar?s books is that her characters are so well developed and seem almost real to me. I love how she helps you feel their emotions and hear their thoughts. The Thief of Corinth is set in the days of early church history which I am fascinated with. I?d love...

    Thief of Corinth is set in the New Testament and Tessa will transport you back to those days. When reading you will forget you are in the 21st century and be back in Biblical days. You will smell the rich scent (yep good and bad), feel the heat, taste the sand, find yourself fleeing th...

    Thief of Corinth is Tessa Afshar?s newest release. The author sure knows how to bring a reader back in time. The historical details were quite vivid and believable. I was drawn into the characters? lives. I enjoyed Ariadne?s story. I found it to be exciting, adventurous, suspense...

    I loved this very different book of fiction. This is a very interesting time period. I have never read a book based in Corinth and enjoyed learning a bit about it. I loved the character of Ariadne and how strong she is. It had to be hard to choose to do something different than most ot...

    Redemption and Restoration There is a reason that Tessa Afshar is one of my favorite Christian authors. She pens Biblical fiction with consummate skill and keen insight, and ?Thief of Corinth? is no exception. The ancient world of first-century Corinth springs to vivid life and off...

    It has been a while since I have had the pleasure of reading one of Tessa Afshar's books, but I always enjoy them when I do! When I was invited to be a part of her launch team for the first book in a new series, I jumped at the chance to get a complimentary ARC and help spread the word...

    This book. My heart. It might just be part of my new 'everything is emotional' way of life (honestly, I cry over the smallest thing) but this book touched my heart and made me cry more than once. It's a beautiful, beautiful story of redemption and just YES. I've read two other books by...

    I have not read a lot of Biblical Fiction. It isn't my first choice of genre to reach for. I have read a book by Mesu Andrews and Connilyn Cossette and have mixed feelings about the writing. But the Thief of Corinth by Tessa Afshar's cover looked amazing. Then I read the synopsis and ...

    Tessa Afshar's Thief of Corinth is a rich treat. Thought provoking, action-packed, and filled with memorable, well fleshed out characters, Thief of Corinth delivers a fascinating tale of an athletic woman once suppressed by society.  Adrianne flees a brutal engagement (and I do mean ...

    While I think it was more me than the book, I had a little bit of a hard time getting into this one. I knew Tessa Afshar was amazing, though, after meeting her in person and reading her first book, Pearl in the Sand. So I took a break in the middle and then binge-read the last 200 page...

    Beware: Rambling review ahead. STYLE - It?s Afshar?s writing style that really bumped my rating up a star. Her rhythm and meter cause her to be several cuts above the standard, homogenized writing of most Christian Fiction authors. Afshar?s beautiful style is so evocative ...

    Tessa Afshar never fails this devoted reader! I devoured Thief of Corinth. The spunky, clever, bright, though-so-damaged-by-life heroine had my heart from page one. Ms. Afshar writes a heroine in which we can all see ourselves, if even just a little. Ariadne leads a life of grand adven...

    Thief of Corinth is a read that I just didn't want to put down. The plot never slows. I also like the way Paul's teachings were woven into the story. At the end, I wanted more adventures and for the story to continue on. ...
