The Man in the Cellby Wayne Michael O'Connor
Archarius is a proud soldier in the Roman Army from a well-known military family whose heart had become hardened by his years in the army as well as his disappointment with people in general. He has accepted tonight's assignment of guard duty unaware that he was assuming responsibility for guarding a very special man. His debate with "The Man in the Cell" this night would prove to be the end of everything he knew and understood of this world and the beginning of a new life and a new journey. It would be in this Roman dungeon that the Son of God would choose not to concern himself with his last hours as a man but instead the redemption of one more lost sheep.

Wayne Michael O'Connor has done an outstanding job with this book. I couldn't put the book down and now my 13 year old son can't stop reading it. I can't wait for the sequel to see where Archarius goes from here.
Great story. Enjoyed the Roman history and especially some of Jesus' explanations to common questions.
This book was well thought out and well written; it is evident that the Holy Spirit guided Mr. O'Connor as he was writing this story. This story contains several important messages, themes, and symbols (my personal favorite which is the water barrel) which are both thought provoking and inspiring. O'Connor's main character (Archarius) is both relatable and inspiring. If there were more people in the world like Archarius, the world may be a brighter place. This book teaches the reader to have an open mind and to not be afraid to be different. We don't have to keep to the status quo because it is popular or expected of us...what we should do is believe in what is right and just and treat others as we want to be treated. If we open ourselves to the Holy Spirit, the Spirit will help guide us in our lives. The Bible selections chosen by the author are impeccable and seemingly flow effortlessly throughout the entirety of the book. I would be interested to see a sequel which describes Archarius's journey after his life-changing shift in the cell. Do yourself a favor and read this; you'll be glad you did.
