 What Readers Are Saying!

“A powerful testimony of faith.

It is 33 A.D. Maximus Vitruvius Messalla, a hardened warrior shunned by his wealthy family, has been sentenced to a life of bloodshed as a Gladiator. After proving his merit within the walls of gore, he is liberated and returns a different man. A changed man. A calloused man.
Andromeda Ayana is a freed slave with unshakeable faith in the rabbi Jesus Christ—a messiah of love and peace who has brought her to a faith like none other. In her, a deep light of peace and tranquility radiates—traits in which Maximus longs to experience, for peace and tranquility have never known him.

I have a difficult time with short stories because I don’t want the story to end. I fell in love with both characters, with the depths of each as they came to life so powerfully within the pages. Having a great love for Christ myself, I find pleasure in learning of other’s conversion stories, for they are always filled with tears of joy. In Gladiator’s Day of Grace, Jewel Adams has beautifully captured a love story based on tenderness, mercy, and forgiveness. She truly is an inspired writer!”  ~ Elizabeth Mueller, author.

“Wow! Hallelujah! Praise God for His indescribable gift! Thank you so much, Jewel, for this beautiful story. A story which tells the old, old story.”  ~thelphred, a reader.

Coming September 30th!

I am so excited about The Gladiator's Day of Grace and consider it the most important work of fiction I have ever done.

About the Book
Maximus Vitruvius Messalla has learned about the unpredictability of life the hard way. Raised in aristocratic prominence and wealth, one moment Maximus is a decorated centurion in the Roman military, quickly rising in the ranks. The next, he is betrayed, charged with treason, and forced to be a gladiator in the Roman arena to earn his freedom.

Throughout the course of these events, Maximus comes to question all he has been taught to believe.

Lifted by his love for a freed slave, Maximus follows her to
Capernaum where he learns of the gospel of Jesus Christ. After witnessing the healing of a fellow centurion’s servant, Maximus’s hunger for truth grows and his questions about the rabbi increase. He knows that if anyone can tell him more about the Messiah, the woman he loves can. On the shore of Galilee, she shares her testimony of the Messiah, and for Maximus, just being in her presence gives him a glimpse of heaven.

Over the course of a single day, he receives answers to questions that have haunted him for years. But when certain events come to light that reopen old wounds, he wonders if he will ever truly have peace.

The Gladiator’s Day of Grace is the story of love, forgiveness, redemption, and one man’s journey to discover the saving grace that is available to all of us.


“It is a selfish statement, but I am glad you are here,” he said, placing his other hand over hers, enclosing it.
Dropping her eyes, she gave a slight shake of her head, and then she freed her hand and stood. “I should go, my lord.”
Maximus stood as well. “Maximus. Call me Maximus.”
Andromeda looked away. “It isn’t proper.”
“I say that it is.” He moved closer and touched her face.
“Please, my lord,” she said, closing her eyes, releasing a shaky breath.
“Don’t be afraid of me, Andromeda,” he said huskily. “You never need to be afraid of me.”
She looked into his eyes then, and he wanted to fall at her feet and worship her. Instead, he kissed her hand and let her go.
