“The Centurion” by Ken Gire, book review

Lucius is has the ambition to be a great leader in the Roman army. He follows orders of his superiors even when the task is less than desirable. We first meet his as Jesus is being crucified and he is to handle the details. While attending the work, he meets Mary and other of Jesus’ friends and disciples.

Mary is overcome with grief at the death of her beloved Jesus. But as a leader in the community of believers, she most keep going with the daily details of life. When the Centurion is asking genuine questions, she answers honestly. And begins a relationship that will cover many years and miles.

This book is rich in language and description. It is definitely told from a male perspective, which allows for deep emotional and physical details. While we have all heard the story of Jesus’ death, this book gives the reader a new perspective.

I enjoyed the book. It was easy to read but included a very rich description of the characters and locations.
