In this book, Victor MacClure clearly shows that he has both retained the touch which made Ultimatum such a success, and profited by his more recent experiences to assemble a great store of Biblical knowledge, history and background.

The woman of this story is Mary Magdalen, and the author accepts—for the purpose of his narrative--the tradition that she and Mary of Bethany were one and the same person.

Victor MacClure has spared no pains to ensure authenticity of characters and settings, and he presents a convincing picture of the strange, colourful post-Augustan Palestine, with its Latin and Hebrew cultures existing side by side in hostile peace, sometimes finding uneasy union in a Romanized Jew or a "provincialised" Roman. This novel represents one of the truly great stories to have been created from New Testament themes.--From the dustcover. [Suggest a different description.]
