In the eighth chapter of the Book of Acts, Luke records the baptism of an Ethiopian chamberlain. Vessel of Honor picks up where Acts 8 left off. Chamberlain Sahlin Malae is in the service of Amanitore, a powerful Ethiopian queen in the First Century A.D. After discovering the long-awaited Messiah, he returns to a kingdom on the verge of destroying itself. Even though he has become a believer, Sahlin craves the power and prestige common to his lineage. Filled with rich history, Vessel of Honor is a compelling portrayal of the inner struggles facing those in the early Ethiopian church.
