In the year 26 Pontius Pilate arrived in Judaea as tax collector and overseer of the cementing of Roman law. Before his term was over he would be at the eye of a storm that would forever alter the course of religion and history. This brilliant biography brings to light — and life — the man that was Pontius Pilate. Anne Wroe taps into classical sources to bring a fully realized account of Pilate’s upbringing and education, his military career, his life in Rome and his eventual confrontation with Jesus Christ. Wroe is a fine re-creator of worlds, presenting exacting details of this time that enable readers to feel they are there with Pilate as he nervously paces the marble floors in Caesarea, and as he rises early one morning before sunrise to carry out his destiny. A riveting and powerful book, it gives a rare perspective of the most significant moment in history.
