The Prisoner of Rome by Tomas W. Schafer

"The Prisoner of Rome is a masterful weaving of political intrigue filled with disguises, twists, maneuvering, and personal agendas!"
Enraged Jewish leaders react to the apostle Paul and cause a near riot. In danger, and accused of treason against Rome, Paul is snatched away by Roman soldiers and taken into custody. The Bible and historical records are mysteriously brief concerning this two-year time in Paul's life. What persons and events might he have encountered while imprisoned?
In this tale of spies and subterfuge, suspicions and surprises, you will be intrigued by the sly manipulators, and inspired by the victories of faith to overcome struggles.
It is a tightly-woven tapestry of cunning characters and challenging events, peppered with fascinating details of first century Roman culture, politics, and power. Clashes between the Roman elite and the early church come alive in a vivid depiction of life in Rome and God's work in the midst of it.
While lives around the apostle churn with uncertainty, Paul maintains steadfast faith in the midst of the chaos. He sees opportunities and God's provision in his circumstances, and ministers to those who are providentially involved--soldiers and citizens, senators and slaves, believers and unbelievers.
Enjoy an exciting journey into possibilities, based on Biblical and historical facts.

About the Author

Tomas W. Schafer taught history and was a journalist for many years. After putting his faith in Jesus Christ, his increased interest in biblical history and the life of the apostle Paul inspired him to research and write this book. His natural curiosity eggs him on to answer his imagination's innumerable questions. He spent hundreds of hours researching 1st century life in Rome and studying the biblical account to obtain relevant facts and plausibility for his story about Paul's imprisonment. He is fascinated with the psychology that underlies power, politics, and people. Schafer's background of prison ministry, mentoring, business, and journalism brings a wide variety of experiences for authenticity in his writing. His interest and experience in mentoring is evident throughout this book, as well as in his first book, MENTORING GOD'S WAY--Fulfilling the Great Commission.
