DO NOT WASTE YOUR CREDITS OR YOUR MONEY IF YOU ARE A CHRISTIAN !!! This book twists all the scripture and teachings and makes a mockery of the Bible and the Christian faith. The story says that Jesus married the woman at the well and it was at their marriage that he turned the water into wine, when in fact the wine was his first miracle. It is alluded that a "potion" made by Pilate's wife may have been responsible for the ressurection. What was great subject material was totally misused and I was very disappointed.
Very engagingly written, Pilate's Wife tells the tale of the woman behind the Roman governor destined to live in infamy as the crucifier of Jesus. It begins in her youth, and is attentive to the detail of daily Roman life as well as sweeping Roman politics. Claudia relates her tale in the first person, and you feel for her as she spends her brief time on earth, caught up in the last events of the Roman empire and the founding of Christianity.
Really enjoyed this book...felt like I was actually back in the time of Pilate and Jesus. I liked how the story intertwined their lives, with a twist.
Interesting portrait of life in the Roman Empire. Biblical far fetched.
A novel of the Roman Empire, about the wife of Pontius Pilate.
