Praetorian Prefect Sextus Burrus has spent his life fighting for the glory of Rome, but that glory has lost its shine. As both his health and his career crumble, he is drawn toward the seemingly inexhaustible peace of one of his Jewish prisoners, the Apostle Paul.
The moment Timothy hears his mentor and surrogate father Paul has been arrested, he rushes to Rome. Under the looming threat of execution, Timothy struggles to make sense of what is happening. Finally, an unexpected crisis requires him to reexamine everything, and places their hope for Paul’s freedom on the shoulders of Praetorian Prefect Sextus Burrus.
I am really enjoying this series. If you enjoy Biblical fiction I highly recommend diving into this series. They are super quick reads that you can finish in a couple of hours (or less depending on how fast you read).
This book made me wish I could sit down with Paul and hear his heart. Of course we can do that by reading his letters but I would love to sit face-to-face. But it has challenged me that when I read his letters to read them as if he is his telling me about Jesus.
