This book continued the series began with the Last Disciple with the kind of pace I am accustomed to in a good Grisham novel. I anxiously read each chapter, and easily got lost in the early Roman world on these adventures. That I was in a world quite similar to the one in which Christ and the early church developed sunk in as I read. This is a wonderful historical fiction and helpful to consider when reading the New Testament, especially Revelation. When will the Last Temple be released?
