A Stone Laid in Zion Aug 16, 2004
This book was the kind of book that you couldn't hardly lay down then couldn't wait to get back to it. Very, very well written...a book to remember
God's Pen? Feb 16, 2004
This brilliant book reveals vividly, life in Caesarea at the time of Christ, written intelligently through an excellent command of language, with colorful details and perhaps, God's own pen. Research on this book must have been tremendous, but most assuredly, God's hand was on the author's shoulder, offering inspiration and encouragement. The short chapters were very much appreciated, because they provided wonderful stopping places when demands on time prohibited a lengthier read. My only disappointment was that the second book in the series is not yet available for purchase!
Great Read for Anyone Dec 18, 2003
Imagine going down in history as the man who sentenced the Son of God to death? An interesting read that helped me better understand Pilate as well as the political and religious mix in Palestine during the last week before Jesus' crucifixion.
Review by Rev. Vann Murrell, Ph.D. Nov 29, 2003
Since I began a major in Religion at Wake Forest University in 1949 and continued on through graduate studies and 32 years of college and university teaching, I have studied the New Testament technically for 54 years. In reading Ellen Bynum's novel (A Stone Laid in Zion: The Story of Pilate, Claudia, and Jesus) I found it to be a very accurate and very colorful picture of life in Palestine under Roman control in the first century A.D. In my opinion, this novel should be read by all Sunday School teachers and Christian leaders so that they can imagine more clearly what life was like in Palestine during the time of Jesus' ministry on earth. I am happy to give this book a very high recommendation.

Excellent read. Enhances your personal relationship to Christ through the characters that knew him during his life on earth. Can't wait for the next in the series to be published.
