Iíve really never given Claudia much thought, though I knew a little about her role when Jesus was put to death by her husband. I really grew to love her in this book. You can see that Claudia is the backbone of her husband by the way he depended on her and drew his strength from her. But though she was so committed to him, she was still her own person, and not afraid to make decisions on her own. I found it really heartwarming the way she treated their son, and the way she worked it out that she could go see the teacher teach, which was Jesus.
I have read several books by Diana Taylor, and I really like her Biblical fiction. In her writing, she mostly stays true to the events as the Bible records them. And when she doesn't, she makes sure she explains where she goes on her own. Donít misunderstand me, Ms. Taylor stays with the Bible principles and promises, by makes changes in the timeline, how the people live, etc. Since there is not a lot about Claudia in the Bible, she was able to use her imagination to create a life for her, and I really enjoyed Claudiaís story very much! If you enjoy Bible fiction, you will really love Claudia, Wife of Pontius Pilate, so I recommend you pick up a copy for your enjoyment. You will surely be entertained!
