Human beings are embedded in a set of social relations. A social network is one way of conceiving that set of relations in terms of a number of persons connected to one another by varying degrees of relatedness. In the early Jesus group documents featuring Paul and coworkers, it takes little effort to envision the apostle's collection of friends and friends of friends that is the Pauline network. The persons who constituted that network are the focus of this set of books. For Christians of the Western tradition, these persons are significant ancestors in faith. While each of them is worth knowing by themselves, it is largely because of their standing within that web of social relations woven about and around Paul that they are of lasting interest. Through this series we hope to come to know those persons in ways befitting their first-century Mediterranean culture. In her exploration of the texts about Priscilla and Aquila, Marie Noël Keller asks, "What does God want us to learn from their story?" The biblical writings show that they worked, lived, and traveled with Paul. As his trusted coworkers, Priscilla and Aquila provided a presence that strengthened the early Jesus groups. Their mutuality in ministry and their leadership as laypeople can inspire members of church communities today to work together as teachers and preachers of the gospel.

Priscilla loves to explore the mysteries of consciousness and the unseen spiritual world, inspired by her Irish father’s Druidic practices and mother’s Native American traditions. After inheriting the Cannady Ranch in Sister’s, Oregon, she must decide whether to keep it and commute to her job as a Professor of Psychology or sell. The appaloosa he left her and a local Stetson-wearing deputy, who happens to be single, just might sway her toward keeping it. Her spiritual gifts are tested when she discovers she and two others are the reincarnated souls of fourth-century Spanish Bishops. As her memory of past lives unfolds, she learns the three were executed for heresy and had vowed to seek revenge on the usurper, Judge Evodius, who sentenced them to death. When he reawakens and possesses the body of a pious priest bent on ushering in the second coming of a messiah, he selects his next human sacrifice. How can Priscilla stop him from killing again?

The astonishing true story of a young woman's adventures, and misadventures, in the dangerous world of Nazi-occupied France. For Priscilla, pre-war Paris was an exciting carousel of suitors, soirées and heartbreak, and eventually a lavish wedding to a French aristocrat. But the arrival of the Nazi tanks signalled the end of life as a Vicomtesse, and the beginning of a precarious existence under German Occupation. Over half a century later, her nephew, Nicholas Shakespeare, found a box of Priscilla's notebooks and journals. He began investigating the rumours that she had escaped a prisoner-of-war camp and fought for the Resistance - and he finally unearthed the truth behind suspicions of disreputable love affairs and far darker secrets.
