After witnessing his father’s crucifixion by Roman soldiers, Daniel bar Jamin is fired by a single passion: to avenge his father’s death by driving the Roman legions from the land of Israel. Consumed by hatred, he joins the brutal raids of an outlaw band living in the hills outside his village. But in nearby Capernaum, Jesus of Nazareth is teaching a different lesson…”We could not put this book down, we felt as though we were there. A gripping, thought provoking, profound book.”
