The Soldier, the Terrorist and the Donkey King
The Other Perspective - A First Century Novel
by David Kitz
Christ’s Passion Week… a familiar account? So you think you know this story? Think again. There are more twists in this plot than in the cruelest crown of thorns. This author takes you on a fast-paced ride through Christ’s Passion Week—an eight day ride you will never forget. Scheming Herod, the bloody Fox, has more than one trick up his sleeve. The high priest and the governor are at each others’ throats. Four kings, together in the holy city for one week, compete for one throne. Now here’s a deadly competition.
Written from a soldier’s perspective, you see a familiar story in a whole new light. Here is the horror of the cross, up close and graphic. While remaining true to the scriptural account, the author weaves with startling realism a very human tale of intrigue and subterfuge. There is more than a little passion here. Did we mention the terrorist connection? So, you think you know how this ends? Ha! Think again! Have you been to the foot of the cross lately? Come, if you dare.
For a number of years now, David Kitz has been telling the soldier’s view of these events in a one-man play entitled, “The Centurion’s Report.” This novel springs from his work with this dramatic production.
David makes his home in Ottawa, Canada, with his wife Karen. His acting skills in various original productions have taken him on tours across Canada. He has a Masters degree in Biblical Studies, has taught for many years, and is an ordained minister. This is his first adult novel.
