A.D. 59: a shadow falls over the Roman Empire as Nero, the younger, begins to assert a foreboding independence. Disregarding the counsel of his advisers, he openly flaunts his unfaithfulness to his wife Octavia, and then orders the murder of his scheming mother Agrippina. Into this looming storm comes Judah Ben-Hur, his wife Esther and their friend, the great apostle Paul, who has been arrested for his missionary activities. Paul has appealed his conviction to Nero, and Judah-the founder of the church in Rome-offers to defend him, setting up a fateful collision of two worlds.Judah Ben-Hur, one of literature's great fictional heroes, rides again in this stirring sequel to the classic story. Like its predecessor, Ben-Hur: The Odyssey is woven into a solidly historical tapestry. Great events are brought to life in this epic tale of love, passion and faith.
