James Papandrea is the author of the 4th book in this series published by InterVarsity Press, historical fiction by biblical scholars that doesn’t scrimp on the story line but adds explanatory details from history and archaeology.
Papandrea takes us to the middle of the first century when the Christian church was just getting started in Rome, long before the Apostle Paul made it to Rome. John Mark, the writer of Mark’s Gospel, is one of the central characters. Other personalities known from the Bible are also featured.
As we have done with other books in this series, we are giving our copy to a listener. Send an email to radioscribe and let us know you are listening, and what you like about The Book & The Spade. We would like to hear from more listeners! And one listener will get a copy of this book.
