A stunning story of Holy Week through the eyes of a Roman centurion
Watch the triumphal entry of the donkey-riding king through the eyes of Marcus Longinus, the centurion charged with keeping the streets from erupting into open rebellion.
Look behind the scenes at the political plotting of King Herod, known as the scheming Fox for his ruthless shrewdness.
Get a front-row seat to the confrontation between the Jewish high priest Caiaphas and the Roman governor Pontius Pilate.
Understand as never before the horror of the decision to save a brutal terrorist in order to condemn the peaceful Jew to death.
If you've heard the story of Passion Week so often it's become stale, now is the time to rediscover the terrible events leading from Jesus's humble ride into the city to his crucifixion. The Soldier Who Killed a King will stun you afresh with how completely Christ's resurrection changed history, one life at a time.

That's my favorite too, Virginia.
My favorite bible inspired movie is Risen. I appreciated how they picked up where most movies finish. I also liked how it showed from a newer perspective as well. We forget how other people might have perceived Christ's resurrection and how the Romans responded to maintain their power. I learned a lot.
I haven't seen "Risen", bt I have heard good reports.
I look forward to your review, Connie. My hope is that my book brings you to the foot of the cross, and you will discover afresh the joy of the empty tomb.
My favorite recent movie is Risen. Built on a concept that hasn't been done before ... the point of view of the soldiers during the crucifixion/resurrection. The movie was very well done and thought provoking as well. I would highly recommend it.
I hope my book resonates with you as well.
My favorite passion play was the famous one in Oberammergau, Germany. I saw it in 1960 as a teenager,
part of a group tour of Europe. It was 8 hours long, with an hour intermission. It was in German, but we had a
translation to read. During the crucifixion scene, a thunderstorm came up; the stage was outdoors, but
we were under roof, as I recall. At any rate, this was a memorable play!
My cousin went to see the Oberammergau drama about ten years ago and was greatly impressed.
