By Louis de Wohl
This panoramic novel of the last days of Christ ranges from the palaces of imperial Rome to the strife-torn hills of Judea, where the conflict of love and betrayal, revenge and redemption, reaches a mighty climax in the drama of the Crucifixion. For this is the full story of the world s most dramatic execution, as it affected one of its least-known participants: the man who hurled his spear into Christ on the Cross. Among his many successful historical novels, Louis de Wohl considered The Spear the magnum opus of his literary career.
This book is best suited for ages 14 and up and is recommended as a part of the Seton Homeschool 10th grade curriculum.
