Beyond the Desert Gate

by Mary Ray


Quick Overview

Palestine in the first century A.D. is as disturbed and divided as it is today. The Jews have revolted against Roman occupation and as they grow more restive, Rome clamps down harder. The ten Greek cities of Palestine -- the Decapolis -- want only to continue their peaceful trading existence, but they find themselves caught in the middle of the uprisings.
  • Details

    Apollodorus, a merchant of Philadelphia, takes a risk and rescues a man whom a Roman patrol has left to die in the desert. When Apollodorus is killed by robbers, his three sons are left almost penniless. Conan, Nicanor and Philo must each find a way for themselves. Philo, the youngest, is befriended by Xenos, the man saved from the desert, who has lost his memory. From him the boy learns the art of the scribe, and together they try to find their identity -- one from the past, the other for the future. A serious story of an important time in history. Size 0.52" H x 8.34" L x 5.6" W, 167 pages
