The Advocate by Randy Singer: A Book Review

As a modern attorney, Randy Singer does an excellent job writing this fictional account of an advocate (lawyer) in the Roman Empire.  Historical fiction set at the time of Christ includes a believable story that incorporates Seneca, Pilate, Nero, vestal virgins, gladiators, and martyrs.  Singer’s main character is a fictional version of Theophilus, to whom the actual Luke addressed his account of the life of Christ and the birth of the Church.

Singer has written a page-turner that captures the spirit of the early church and the price they paid for following Jesus.
