This novel touched me deeply in my spirit....very thought provoking and inspiring. What if you could go back 2000 years and actually witness the Son of God in the flesh here on earth? How would it feel to actually see with your own eyes the amazing miracles He performed? And imagine being there helplessly watching as He is arrested and crucified...but then to see Him alive and commune with you...personally!!

This novel was makes it so real to your senses and takes the gospel to a level of personal experience in a very profound way. It is anointed by God to open up the spiritual understanding in a very meaningful way. Outstanding!!!


Couldn't put it down. The attention to detail made me see if all in my mind. The characters were very believable.

5-Star Amazon Review

A brilliant and a totally unexpected thriller!

I did not know what to expect when I got this book from Amazon! But the book kept me engrossed from the very beginning!!

R.A. Williams is my pen name. Russell is my legal name, but my older friends and family call me Rusty.  By day, I work as a medical lab technologist. In my free time, I strive to write compelling, thought-provoking Christian fiction that falls outside of mainstream expectations. Aside from my degree in medical technology, I have an additional degree in psychology and sociology, and I use this background to connect with the reader at an emotional level, while at the same time, adding just the right dose of humor for comic relief.


I live in Tennessee with my wife, daughter, and rescue dog named Poppy. I’ve been writing fiction for nearly twenty-five years. My published works include the following novels: The Class of 86, The Gospel According to Todd, Carbon-14: The Shroud of Turin, The Cult of New Canaan, Sixty-Five Roses, First Cause, The Near-Death Experience of Justin Parks, and Cradle of Life. My shorter works have appeared in The Christian Communicator, Encounters With God, and Dreams and Visions. Outside of writing, my other interests include psychology, Biblical history, finger-style guitar, and religious relics such as The Shroud of Turin.
