About the Author
W.G. Griffith, who lives on Long Island, published 3 books between Spetmber, 2000, and May, 2001, as well as two other novels adapted into screenplays. After giving his heart to Jesus in 1977 and following his heart as a carpenter and builder, he began writing novels after work in 1995. Griffiths says he will never give up his love of carpentry and building, but that writing has taken control of his schedule. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

This is my first W.G. Griffith book and will not be my last. His writing style is easy to read but not immature. Griffith pens a story that clearly shows the power of the cross and the resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ. I like that fact that he shows a sharp line between religion and truth. He also did not shy away from the corruption of the Jewish religious leaders of the time even though there are those today who take issue with it.
If you are looking for a really good historical novel that reads like a story that could take place today then get yourself this book. I think you'll be pleasantly surprised.

For those who give me a negative vote on my review please comment and let me know why. I'd like to improve my reviews so they can be helpful to those who read them. Please understand I choose not to give a synopsis of the book because it's already given at the top of the home page. I find in doing so too many reviewers give away too much of the plot. Thank you.
The love story is simply beautiful...I love the author's description of Zara...and Malchus' response to her...pure and transparent but not naive. The ending is my favorite part of the book (at the risk of sounding Cinderella-ish) because it embodies the healing, joy, and love, that is the purpose of God's tremendous sacrificial offering...it is redemption seen in the life and how His love embellishes ours and makes us capable of truly loving in our intimate connections, increasing our capacity for oneness and individuality simultaneously...who else can do that? It also shows the importance to God of relationship and connection with us and between us and others...that it is truly the one thing that matters most here. He takes us from invisible slaves to being seen and known and remarkably, not only unconditionally loved, but restored and set free. Each redemption uniquely personal.
The plot is wonderfully and masterfully interwoven....awed by it in spots.
I wonder how the author can completely embody so many diverse characters so believably in words. Who are you?
Thank you for the privilege.
You can't help but fall in love with the characters, and with the way the stories are unveiled in all of the W.G. Griffiths novels. Interesting, inspiring, thought provoked, highly creative, intense, captivating..... all of them. The stories like the characters all have great depth and become personal. This author must have been a fisherman in a previous life (or perhaps it's the builder in him..... Jesus after all, was a carpenter). He instinctively knows how to cast his net and patiently wait. The reader is netted from the acknowledgements, before the story even begins. The journey begins at the cover!
Griffiths has style. A true calling shines through. He unfurls a story in a way that is, well, it's natural. Griffiths keeps it real. The reader can identify.
