Obviously it takes place around the time the Roman Empire encompassed pretty much all of Europe and a large section of Africa as well. It was during this time that a man walked the earth that came not to free Israel from their Roman captors but to free the whole world. It takes place after Jesus walked the earth but it draws upon events that took place during his time of ministry to the Israelites and the Gentiles to a lesser degree. The main characters are a Roman soldier, a Centurion in fact, who embarks upon a trip to travel some of the very paths that Jesus Christ traveled. An unlikely traveling companion from Greece is a fellow seeker of the truth behind some of the miracles that Jesus Christ did while he was in the world. Chapter after chapter takes you from one city to another where you will encounter many people you have studied about 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. The reason this matter was even brought up is that some people tend to tear a novel, story, or movie apart by submitting it to a strictly literal interpretation of the Bible. While there is plenty of biblical truth to this story there is also a fair amount of materials that cannot be found in a Bible. Many of the miracles and events presented in this book are a puzzle to many people who have studied them and who continue to study them seeking the full depth of their real meanings. A light-hearted approach to the miracles and events was used but rest assured that it is not an affront to the Savior or those who follow Him. As a side note, all proceeds from the sale of this book will go to a local ministry.
