About the Book

This is a work of historical fiction about the earliest days of Christianity. Recently several non-canonical documents have been discovered which describe a Christianity in which Jesus, although a holy man, was human and married to Mary Magdalene with which he had children. Some of these documents, including the Gospel of John, precede the canonical gospels which were written much later. [It wasn’t until the Council of Nicaea in 325 CE that the Roman Emperor ‘Constantine chose to unite his empire under the Pauline form of Christianity and to ‘negate, banish, exile and cause to be burned at the stake those who believed in pre-Pauline Christianity. The Emperor of Rome was no more qualified to decide which form of Christianity is true than anyone else. History has proven that he is indeed qualified to determine which branch of Christianity he chose to unite his empire.
