What would it be like to live in the geopolitical center of the world during the first century, when donkeys and camels were the cars and trucks; conversations over a goblet of wine were the social media; and religious conflict influenced every facet of life? What would it be like to constantly live under the pagan political domination of Roman tyranny, while also enduring the oppressive ritualistic control of hypocritical religious bigots? What would it be like to live in the very week that this dark confused world was being invaded by heaven—a week when history would shift its time of reckoning from BC to AD?
This gripping story, written by David Kitz, offers its readers a front row seat from where we can view the action. It’s a hidden camera on the helmet of a primary witness to this history altering drama, when the Sovereign of the Universe, quietly riding on a lowly donkey, overthrew the pomp and power of the most powerful empire this world has ever known. More than that, it’s a look into the mind and heart of a man, not unlike you or me, who was wrestling with the questions of the meaning and purpose of life.
As you read the thoughtful eyewitness account of The Soldier Who Killed a King, as told by Marcus the Roman centurion, you will feel his anxiety and anguish. And ultimately you too will exult in the answers he discovers, because—despite the time and cultural differences—his story is our story.
