Did Rome s first century rulers know of Jesus? Why and how did Rome force the Jewish heartland into a suicidal rebellion? Why did Rome almost destroy itself so soon after the height of its glory? How did the first Christians survive and even grow? The years AD. 31-71 were among the most turbulent in human history, and All God s Children is the most complete account ever assembled of how the Christians and Jews challenged the Roman world -- and why the degeneracy of their political overlords paved the way. All God s Children is a factual history, but one using a fictitious narrator and the historical novel genre in order to reach beyond scholars to a mass audience. By seeing the first century through the eyes of Attalos, a Greek ex-slave and Roman immigrant who writes in A.D. 80, the reader is drawn into first century life before the existence of popes, crusades and cathedrals to the narrator s world of Olympic gods, rigid aristocracy and tormented masses. The result is a griping, inspiring tale of courage and compassion in a world of debauchery and despotism."
