Thief of Corinth Reviews
This was a terrific read from beginning to end. The characters are thoroughly engaging, the plot unique and intriguing, and a simply wonderful novel.
I really enjoyed this read, the tie in with Biblical characters, and the story as a whole. I don’t give spoilers so the best parts you will just have to find out for yourself!
It’s a tremendous read, and readers won’t be disappointed with the twists and turns of this novel.

Tessa Afshar is tied with Laura Hillenbrand for my favorite author, so I fully expected to like her newest book Thief of Corinth. Additionally, I knew that I would walk away with practical insight concerning spiritual matters. However, seeing as Ariadne is a fictional character renown for her athleticism and secretly fancies herself Robin Hood 1.0, I knew that I could not connect with her like I did Ruth in In the Field of Grace and Rahab in Pearl in the Sand. However, doesn’t true literature ca ...more
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 other women. I enjoyed her journey of discovery along with all of her friends. I did not want to stop reading this story. I hope to read many more of Tessa Afshar’s books. I received a copy of this book from the auth ...more
Thief of Corinth by Tessa Afshar is a book that gifted me with entertainment, a message to ponder, and enough tension to keep my attention all the way through. Set in the ancient city of Corinth, Afshar delighted me with witty dialogue, multi-faceted characters, and a sense of adventure. Having read her previous books, I knew I was in for a treat with this one. And while I felt this book carried a more lighthearted tone that the previous ones, I was in no way short changed. In fact, I think the ...more
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.
Set in a time when Christianity was new, this beautifully written story is full of adventure, rich in historical detail, and full of plot twists that made it hard to put down. I especially loved how the Apostle Paul was ...more
Review coming closer to release date.
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 figured it might be something I would enjoy reading. I'm glad that I did. With the Thief of Corinth, I finished the entire novel in one day.
Her writing is amazing. I have a deep respect for writers of Biblical fict ...more
This book is AMAZING!!!!
Thief of Corinth (2018) by Tessa Afshar is a FANTASTIC stand-alone novel. This book comes in all forms including eBook, and is 368 pages in length. With a full-time job and a very busy six-year old at home, this novel took me two days to read. I received a copy of this book in paperback form from the author via her publisher, Tyndale House Publishers. In no way has this influenced my opinion of the story. All opinions expressed in this review are my own. I give Thief of C ...more
