Risen: The Novelization of the Major Motion Picture http://goo.gl/sEHiFH
This was an excellent book ! A fictional account of the crucifixtion and resurrection as witnessed and experienced by Clavius the Roman officer in charge of the execution of Jesus and his girlfriend Rachel. The author really get’s into the minds of Rachel and Clavius and I was able to step into Clavius’s shoes and experience the story thru his eyes. Great book !
