Under the Penalty of Death

It’s difficult to imagine my life without books. For as long as I can remember, reading has been my form of escape, my outlet for stress, for learning, or broadening my horizons as I am exposed to new ideas, thoughts, or a pleasant trip to another world.


I can’t quite wrap my mind around having a hard time reading … but today’s author had many challenges to overcome as she struggled with severe dyslexia, discouragement from others, and her own spiritual battles to emerge as my favorite type of author I love to interview … the debut novelist.

At sixty-four years old, Kristena Mears has published her first book called, Under the Penalty of Death.


Will running set them free or sentence them to death?

Keturah idolizes her brother, Justus. He stood his ground with Abba, declaring Yeshua Messiah, resulting in Keturah’s desire to know more about Yeshua, and Abba proclaiming Justus dead to the family.


Today, Keturah became a woman, but her joy ends in terror when Abba accepts an offer for her betrothal. Devising a plan to escape the arranged marriage is dangerous, but it works. Now she’s able to find her brother and live as she chooses.


Every choice she makes turns into disaster. Manipulating to get her own way puts her in difficulty and danger. Women get stoned for what she is doing. What happens if Justus and her new friends see through the deception? Will her actions alienate her from her brother forever? Most of all—how much does Yahweh demand of her life?


Listen in as debut novel Kristena Mears talks candidly about her journey, her book, and what the Lord has done new in her life on Tuesday, February 20th, at 7 pm Eastern time. You can follow PJCmedia.net. Subscribe to our YouTube Channel at @pjcmedia.
