)-- Miriam is a young Jewish girl growing up in Jerusalem during troubled times, when Jesus still walked the earth. Though she has a loving mother and has grown up in relative comfort, she feels she has a hole in her heart—a hole left by her absentee father. When her mother is killed in a terrible accident, she is taken in by her kind and generous uncle, and she finds some solace in his family and in working at his inn. Her cousin Gideon shows interest in her, but she finds herself falling in love with Adam, a Jewish mercenary working for the Roman army.
Adam shares her affection, and eventually introduces her to the teachings of Jesus. The two build a life together, full of love for each other and for God. Adam’s work with the Romans puts him in danger, and Miriam fears for his life as the king begins to target followers of Jesus. Will Adam’s beliefs jeopardize his life just as the young marriage begins? Will Miriam continue to find strength in God, no matter what trials are set before her? Will Miriam ever learn the identity of her father?
Knowing the Father, published by Dog Ear Publishing, is a gripping story, set during tumultuous times in an exotic setting. It is a glimpse into the everyday life of an average Jewish family of the time period. Carl Zahrte is a pastor who has spent many years teaching, counseling, and preaching to a receptive public. His role as a counselor to many has provided him with “unfair experience… in telling the story of Miriam.” He is a husband, father and grandfather, and his own life experiences enable him to relate to the trials of others.
