More About This Book

Overview

Simon of Cyrene carried Jesus' cross. But what happened to Simon after the crucifixion?

Simon of Cyrene: The Cross-Bearer's Legacy is a novel that tells about the life and experiences of Simon; Miriam, his wife; Alexander and Rufus, his sons; Lucius, his brother-in-law; the other members of his family; and his friends in Cyrene. The story involves conversion, the growth of Christian faith, the trials and difficulties first-century believers encountered, and the fire of martyrdom.

Travel with Simon to Jerusalem where he witnesses the crucifixion. Go with Lucius from Cyrene to Jerusalem and on to Antioch, where he serves his Lord in Christian ministry. Take that fateful voyage with Rufus and his family as they travel from Cyrene to Rome. Finally, rejoice in the birth of Simon Christopher, who, with his sister Mary, will take the cross-bearer's legacy into the next generation.

This is a story of conversion and faith, of tragedy and triumph, of love and hope. It is a story in which biblical characters come alive as real flesh-and-blood human beings. See what faith in the risen Christ meant for these people and what it may mean for you.
