Overview

The 10 short stories in The Centurion and the Songbird retell stories from the Gospels, each from the point of view of a character in the narrative. Stimulating and engaging, these stories read deeply into the biblical story, bringing the Bible's message and characters to life and opening hearts to new, imaginative understandings.

  • Thaddeus, a young man worried about the life of his soul, seeks out a prophet to ask him what he must do to earn eternal life.
  • Olivia goes to Calvary to witness the death of her beloved teacher, Jesus, whose life is entwined with hers and with that of her husband, Pontius Pilate.
  • Mattathias works for a Roman centurion who seems to respect Jewish beliefs and customs. But Mattathias is confused and angered when Flavius seeks healing for his slave from the troublemaker Jesus.

A companion leader's guide is also available, which includes suggestions for using the stories with groups.
