The Rome Gospel
by Ben Chenoweth
In the aftermath of the Fire of Rome, Yohanan, also called Mark, decides to leave the city. But first he must become a servant of the word by learning the account of Jesus. To do this he spends time with one of the last eyewitnesses remaining in Rome, a woman named Junia. The process stirs up memories of his childhood, the failures of his adult life, and of a horrible, dark night in Jerusalem.
