The Spear of Longinus is an enthralling, historical saga of the Roman centurion who speared Jesus of Nazareth on his cross of sorrows. Aficionados of Ben Hur and the Robe will relish the novel’s deadly intrigues, deep friendships, enduring love, and the hero’s reluctant journey toward faith. All inexorably intertwine in an era when Rome’s pagan emperors vowed to eradicate both the Jews and the fledgling Christian religion. For an excerpt of the book, professional awards, and to order, please visit or call 610-203-4099. $19.95 includes a signed copy and shipping.
