When archaeologists at Caesarea Maritima uncovered a broken inscription that named Pontius Pilate, they brought to light one of the few contemporary references to the Roman prefect of Judea. Historian Paul L. Maier fills in the details in this highly acclaimed historical novel. How did Pilate become prefect, and where did he end up? What really happened at that most famous trial? Was Pilate motivated by cowardice, expediency, or necessity? Maier unforgettably brings to life the political intrigues and cultural clashes of first-century Judea. 384 pages, hardcover from Kregel.

Although I would have appreciated a little more fiction on the personal life of Pontius Dr. Maeir more than makes up for it in his historical facts that are written in such an interesting fashion that one can actually recall the facts of the setting. I think his intepretation is absolutely possible and I have often wondered "what happened to..." Pontius Pilate. Well written, well worth reading,
