Forbidden Gates is historical fiction by Denise Williamson, set in Jerusalem in the first century. This Christian fiction book tells the story of Nathan, the son of a temple money-changer. Nathan knows the laws of God’s house, and he has never questioned the rules. But when Dorian, a young Gentile, asks to meet with God, Nathan decides to take him into the temple, a forbidden act that defiles the temple on the eve of the Feast of the Harvest. Nathan is caught not only in the center of a growing conflict between temple officials and the disciples of the recently crucified Jesus but also in his own struggle to find real truth.

Great for teaching how the early church sufferedMy kids were " on the edge of their seats " with this book. I loved how it showed the drawing of a young boy's heart to God through another young peasant boy who had become a believer. Just loved this.
