"Duty. Honor. Tyranny. Love. Lucius read of the heroic exploits of Caesar's Fourteenth Legion and their attacks on Gaul and Britain, and ever since, he dreamed of the glory of Rome and adventures on the high seas that would secure his place in that glory. But his first station was in the backwaters of Jerusalem. Haunted by witnessing the crucifixion of Jesus, Lucius seeks out one of his followers, Mary of Magdalene. He must know more about this King of the Jews. In the weeks that follow, the centurion finds himself falling for Mary Magdalene and the Lord Jesus, whom she follows. But, the centurion, instead, follows General Paulinus to halt the rebellion in the Britons with Lucius, his most trusted officer, leading his men into battle. In the most brutal of times-a sweeping stage that includes persecution within the borders of the Roman Empire and war outside its borders-The Centurion chronicles Lucius and Mary's journeys, which take very different routes; hers toward God; his away from God. Decades later when their paths cross again, during the Christian persecutions in northern Italy-life-warn and weary, they must choose to serve love or duty. "-- Provided by publisher.
