“…a fresh look at the Christian faith at its inception, through the eyes of a pagan slave… a fascinating story of love and betrayal, deception and revelation, and the search for integrity in a world of self-aggrandizement.”
“McDowell’s depth of knowledge and research into the first-century Roman world and early Christianity made me feel like I’d gone back in time. The culture, the people, the food, and the beliefs were so engaging, I found myself arguing with the characters—many of whom are historical figures.”
