"A Week in the Life of a Roman Centurion"

With Gary Burge

This is a fictional account of life in the first century, the time of Jesus, by a New Testament scholar. In order to make biblical research accessible to the average person, books like this engage the imagination and take us back to the same period that we read about in the gospels. It's a short book, packed with a lot of biblical information in a very accessible format. I enjoyed reading it and I enjoyed my conversation with Gary Burge, giving the background of the project and some of the perspectives that he included in the book.
