I A brilliant book if ever there was one. While this is technically "Christian" fiction in that it involves a man's encounter with Christ, it's more about a man's struggle with Rome and his own hatred for a nation that robbed him of his father. It makes for a powerful character and an equally powerful conflict. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0978655133, Paperback)

THE SCROLL WILL DESTROY... For generations, the copper scroll has remained buried, concealing the treasure it protects and the prophecy it contains. Now that secret is about to be unleashed. In the right hands, the scroll could bring about ancient Israel's freedom from Roman occupation, but used improperly, it could destroy her. EVERYTHING THE MAN KNOWS... After watching Roman soldiers murder his father and pillage his homeland, Barabbas, a warrior zealot and sworn protector of the scroll, has become a broken man, physically and emotionally. His quest for vengeance and Roman blood, his love for a peace loving woman, and his commitment to the mysterious scroll pull him in vastly different directions. AND HE WILL BE KILLED... Death and betrayal loom around every corner as Barabbas searches for a truth that he has yet to fully understand-the force that drives him forward and ultimately requests the ultimate sacrifice to be made by a man. OR REMADE.

(retrieved from Amazon Thu, 12 Mar 2015 18:15:17 -0400)

A Jewish zealot who watched Roman soldiers kill his father and pillage his homeland is charged with a mission that could destroy or free Israel.
