Christian Fiction by Kimberly Black

My First Love is the Bible. Since I was a little kid, I’ve loved Bible stories. I would spend hours not just reading the Bible, but imagining these people in the stories, their lives before and after the portion included in Scripture. I wrote Lydia, Woman of Purple and Her Most Precious Gift because of the love I have for the strong women in the Bible, and for the way Jesus and His followers loved and respected women in spite of cultural norms of the time.
