This is a book Christians will enjoy because it's entertaining and educational as well. It takes place around the time the Roman Empire encompassed Europe and a large section of Africa as well.
Jesus walked the earth then and He came not to free Israel from their Roman captors but to free the whole world. This book takes place after Jesus walked the earth. It draws upon events that took place during His ministry to the Israelites and the Gentiles.
The main character is a Roman Centurion who travels the paths that Jesus Christ traveled. His unlikely Greek traveling companion is a fellow seeker of the truth.
This book takes you from one city to another as they encounter people you've studied in the Word of God. And you’ll also meet up with some people who aren’t in any version of the Bible.
An advance warning to some who are quite literal in their interpretation of the Word of God. This is a simple novel, not a treatise on Jesus’ ministry. This is, by no means, an attempt to rewrite the Bible on my part. If you approach this book keeping in mind that it is a novel and not a study guide then you will enjoy it.
