Within this setting a radical Roman named Paul shares the good news of new life offered by a Jewish rabbi who was recently crucified in the occupied territory of Judea yet rumored to be alive. Roberta Damon skillfully blends historical facts with fictional characters to create a masterful, inspiring and educational read!
