Of Such Is The Kingdom, Parts I & II, A Novel of the Christ and the Roman Empire
by James M. Becher
In 33 A.D, a cynical, non-conformist salesman, a disgruntled blacksmith, and a musing mendicant all seek something better. The non-conformist, Herod’s foster brother, helps Herod foment an insurrection against Pilate, using the blacksmith, Barabbas, as leader, to the dismay of Barabbas' Godly but fearful wife. The mendicant, a young man, joins with a completely unsympathetic older mendicant.
