The thrilling conclusion of the Sisters of Lazarus trilogy.
Jesus Christ has risen from the dead. After walking with His disciples for 40 days, He left them with one final admonition: “Do not leave Jerusalem, but wait for the gift My Father promised, which you have heard Me speak about. For John baptized with water, but in a few days you will be baptized with the Holy Spirit. You will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be My witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”
Honoring the words of the Lord Jesus, Lazarus and his sisters, Mary and Martha–along with the followers of The Way–gather in the upper room to pray, and await the promise. Little do they realize their tiny sect of the Jewish faith is about to shake the gates of hell and threaten the power structure of the mightiest empire the world had ever known.
A riveting story of love, longing and faith. Paula combines masterful storytelling with well-crafted dialogue. The result is a cast of biblical characters fresh, human and real. Through the eyes of Lazarus, Mary and Martha, the reader eagerly connects with three siblings from a normal, dysfunctional family.

“Glory Revealed” picks up immediately where “Beauty Unveiled” ended, and carries the story of Christ to its glorious conclusion as seen through the eyes of those who witnessed firsthand the greatest story ever told.
