The Centurion's Wife

Full Product Description

"A sweeping saga of the dramatic events surrounding the birth of Christianity - and the very personal story of Leah: compelled into a betrothal she never wanted and drawn by a faith she never expected..."

When her family's wealth and power are lost forever, Leah is sent to Pontius Pilate in hopes that he might arrange a strategic marriage. But despite her betrothed's striking countenance and position, Leah deems life as a centurion's wife a fate worse than death.

Head of the garrison near Galilee, Alban harbors ambitions that could one day see him at the seat of power,  in Rome itself. Eager to prove himself, he takes on the assignment of a lifetime, one that will put his career, his beliefs, and his very life at risk.

But when the death, and missing body, of an obscure rabbi find Leah and Alban searching for the same answers, what they discover changes everything.

The Centurion's Wife by Davis Bunn & Janette Oke was published by Baker in April 2009 and is our 9562nd best seller. The ISBN for The Centurion's Wife is 9780764205149.

"Grandmother of the evangelical Christian fiction boom, Oke teams with Bunn, another established author brand, in this biblical fiction embroidered around a minor character in the gospels, one Roman soldier whose young servant was miraculously healed by Jesus.. This nicely plotted series kickoff provides interesting back stories for the central characters that cry out for further development. A few supporting characters hold interest, including Alban's fellow soldier Linux and Pilate's wife Procula, another intriguing bit player in the gospel of Christ's passion... Fans of these popular authors will love their joint effort imagining and animating the context of Christianity's birth." —Publishers Weekly

"When Pilate hears reports that Jesus' body is missing from the tomb, he fears a Jewish uprising may be in the works. He orders an ambitious centurion, one who hopes to marry Pilate's servant, to discover what has happened to Jesus. Meanwhile Pilate's wife, plagued by nightmares, orders the servant to find out the truth about Jesus. The novel takes place over the two months following the resurrection. Bunn and Oke weave a romantic, action-filled story that highlights the human reactions—fear, confusion, anticipation, doubt, skepticism—to Jesus' death and the events following. It's a moving novel that shows Christ's power to change hearts." —Susan Olasky, World Magazine
