The life of Deucalion Quinctus, Commander of the Garrison under Pontius Pilate, is changed forever by the crucifixion, burial, and resurrection of Jesus of Nazareth, by his sudden love for the beautiful outcast, Esther, and by a bundle of parchments given to him by a mysterious stranger.
Events surrounding the Christos trigger an avalanche which threatens empires–the relentless guilt of Pilate, the frightening ambition of Herod, the uncertain future of Caiaphas, the violent madness of Saul of Tarsus, and the guiding hand of the Watcher, Uriel. Yet, over it all the tenacious love of God weaves a remarkable tale of spiritual power and inspiration.
This compelling historical novel brilliantly pictures dramatic spiritual conflicts in first-century Israel; webs of religious and political intrigue that have world powers wavering on cliff’s edge.
First book in the Giants in the Earth trilogy, exciting spiritual thrillers spanning two thousand years.

Webb has done it again! I read The Oldest Enemy and Loved it, so I thought lets start from the beginning. This story held me capitive from the start. The Characters were vivid in my mind and I found myself caring for their well being and with out giving away anything, things happened that I did not see coming. Well Done Webb! I am not a man that has a lot of time for a read, so was excited to find the easy flow that had me from chapter one. I started noticing a writing trait of the author which I enjoy. He takes you into the characters thoughts from where things started and how they ended up where we catch up with them. He does this seamlessly. Plenty of adventure for the men and Gods word through out...comforting. Oh by the way.....Just picked up The Nephilim Parchments..to be continued....Yippee!!! JimA2
Every Sunday at church I say the Creed and know that it was under Pontius Pilate that Jesus was killed. This book's character Deucalion was very interesting to me. It was also interesting to read about some of the Bible stories, that I know so well, told in a different way. There are so many people in the Bible that this author wrote about that I know he did a lot of research. He brings up Moses and others, and he includes them in his story line. In the beginning of the book there are a lot of character introductions, and I was briefly confused. However as the characters played their part I was reminded of their role in the Bible. It is interesting to read about the man that stabbed Jesus, and not wonder how and why he did what he did. Was he just doing what he was told? How does he react to being at the resurrection site? With all that I loved about this book it was hard to remember that this is fiction, because it could have happened this way. That is what makes a great historical fiction read! This is also the first book in a trilogy and I cannot wait for more from the author. I am giving this book a 5/5. I was given a copy to review from CWA, however all opinions are my own!
