WHY MY BIBLICAL NOVEL IS UNIQUE: Unlike "The Robe," "Ben Hur," or "The Silver Chalice", this novel poses no extra-Biblical miracles, but use fiction to point to truth. This novel is also unique because of its unique writing style combining poetry, straight dialogue and 1st person stream-of-consciousness narration with the 3rd person narrative. More reasons my Biblical novel is unique are: .A unique view as to who may have been behind the insurrection against Pilate .A historical anachronism: The attribution of non-conformity to two of the characters .It points to the crucifixion of Jesus as the focal point and most significant event. 'The conversion of some of the main characters, through seeing the truth.

SYNOPSIS of "OF SUCH IS THE KINGDOM" BY THE AUTHOR: ------------------------------------------------ Step back into New Testament times--to Ancient Jerusalem at the time of Christ and of the historical Roman Empire, and ask: What could a cynical, non-conformist dry-goods salesman, a disgruntled blacksmith, and a musing mendicant all have in common? The answer: Down deep, they all seek something better; and eventually, they all find the childlike faith and humility required to enter God's kingdom and find true fulfillment. The non-conformist, Manaheem, Herod’s foster brother, helps Herod foment an insurrection against Pontius Pilate, using the blacksmith, Barabbas, as insurrection leader, to the dismay of Barabbas' Godly but fearful wife. The mendicant, a young man named Timotheus, joins with an older mendicant completely unsympathetic to his musings. Meanwhile, Pontius Pilate’s wife pushes him to take over Herod’s kingdom. When the insurrection fails, Non-conformist, Manaheem, tries to blackmail Herod, and Barabbas turns to robbery, enlisting the aid of our two mendicants. Manaheem almost loses his one true love, his former wife Claressa, also a non-conformist, with whom Manaheem is trying to re-unite. The robbery goes bad, and Barabbas and the mendicants are caught, tried for murder and sentenced to death by crucifixion. Barabbas is also charged with the insurrection against Pontius Pilate
