From the back of the book: Epic in scope, yet deeply personal, this novelization offers a unique perspective on the story of the resurrection. Roman Tribune Clavius is assigned by Pilate to keep the radical followers of the recently executed Yeshua from stealing the body and inciting revolution. When the body goes missing despite his precautions, Clavius must hunt it down.
His investigation leads him from the halls of Herod Antipas to the Garden of Gethsemane and brings him in touch with believer and doubter alike. But as the body still remains missing, Clavius commits to a quest for the truth--and answers that will not only shake his life but echo throughout all of history.
Angela Hunt is known for her novels where she takes truths from the Bible and turns them into novels. In her latest book, that was released just in time for Easter, is Risen. The novel based on the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus in the eyes of a Roman Tribune.
This is a very interesting novel, that I am sure Angela Hunt's followers will love. One thing we must remember is, that this is a fictional book based on a truth. Ms. Hunt is great at doing her research and making us really think about these truths from the Bible.
