The Scribe (Paperback)
There is a deep, rich vein of spirituality running through The Scribe, a novel that resurrects the life of Luke the Evangelist.
After the crucifixion of Jesus, in its immediate aftermath, a young widower and member of the Sanhedrin becomes disillusioned with the high priests and begins to adopt a Christian way of thinking. Forced to leave Jerusalem, he finds himself in a time that heralded the birth of the gospels.
The novel follows an array of characters both factual and fictional: Mary, the mother of Jesus, Jesus himself, the gospel writers, a mystical figure known as the Seer, and the Santos brothers, a seagoing pair from Hispania, among others.
Set against a background of countries that made up the ancient world, The Scribe shines a beacon of light on a period of history that changed us all forever.
