The plot involves the discovery of a life of Jesus written just after his death, the author being a retired Roman soldier who is intrigued by what he has heard. The author, Trevor Steele, is obviously well versed in the biblical picture of Jesus, but does not let this limit his touching portrait not only of Jesus but also of many other characters. The action is good, too, and I found it difficult to put down at the end of a chapter; and I'm now going to read it for a second time.
What it delivered instead was a fantasy of psychic healing, auras, chakras, telepathy, clairvoyance and dream/spirit guides. The whole plot depends upon this nonsense about Jesus zapping people with his psychic color rays.
The historical details were okay but I hated the constant dependence upon magic.
I so much liked your style of writing, the way you chose your words. It was like a feast reading it and now the party is over.
