The Fisherman's Testament
It is the year AD 62. The notorious Roman emperor Nero orders Marco Junio Vitalis, a seasoned military general, to assist him in a most peculiar legal proceeding. Vitalis interrogates an elderly Jewish fisherman called Peter, who many years earlier had been a close friend of a man known as Jesus—the same Jesus condemned to death in Jerusalem by Pontius Pilate. Loyal to the emperor, Vitalis determines to do everything in his power to expose the truth around this strange new religious sect before it undermines Roman rule. So it is, through the course of interrogation between veteran soldier and detainee, that a story emerges that will shake the very foundations of the Roman Empire. Now making its first-ever appearance in English, this award-winning, meticulously researched Spanish bestseller transports readers back to ancient Rome ... to a culture far removed from ours yet with striking similarities ... and a time of tumultuous upheaval where the stakes are high for followers of Christ.
