Overview

A First Century war of wills between a man and God rages amid love and roaring danger on the high seas.
The Sin Bearer is an action-packed tale of human drama on the high seas, a love story, and an adventure story. It is also a carefully crafted, deeply satisfying piece of biblical/historical fiction.
Two thousand years ago off the coast of Malta there occurred one of the most famous shipwrecks of history—famous because aboard her as a prisoner was the man who changed the course of world history with the Christian message. That man was the Apostle Paul. The Sin Bearer is a vivid retelling of his sea disaster outlined in the 27th chapter of the Book of Acts.
It is the story of Shipmaster Abiel Ben Heled, so devout in his Jewish faith that his crew call him "the rabbi" behind his back. It's the story of Abiel's hatred—for the Roman Centurion who commandeers his ship and for his prisoner, Paul, and the false Messiah Paul preaches. It's the story of Abiel's love for a beautiful slave among his passengers. And finally, of his decision to risk his ship on the certainty that Jesus, Paul's so-called Messiah, is a fraud.
It is a gamble he loses—but in the end he wins - in a human drama that will keep you enthralled to the last page.

    This Book is Awesome

    I know Tom Taylor personally - he sings in the choir at Shenandoah Baptist Church in Roanoke, VA - and his books are great. This one is my favorite so far, but I'm just starting on the 4th - None Among the Gods. What makes reading the books so exciting is knowing the author. Tom Taylor is a humble, godly man who has taken his talent for writing and made it available for God to use to be glorified through it. It is my honor to be able to call this man my friend. I strongly recommend all of Tom's books as good, Christian reading.
