In The New Covenanters – Part I: The Rising Tide, journey back to the tumultuous first century of the Christian Era – a time that reshaped the destinies of Rome and Judaea. This captivating historical narrative plunges readers into an era marked by the crucifixion of Jesus, the fervent struggles of the Jews under Roman rule, and the heartrending destruction of Jerusalem’s Second Temple.

The tale revolves around the enigmatic Josephus Flavius, once known as Joseph ben Matthias. From his days as a gallant commander of Jewish forces in Galilee during the Great Revolt to his transformation into a historian and witness to Jerusalem’s fall, his story is intricately intertwined with the seismic events of his time. Drawing from meticulous research and the writings of Josephus himself, The Rising Tide not only brings to life an epoch of monumental change but also introduces readers to the people and passions that fuelled it. Experience history’s turning tides and the birth of profound legacies in this mesmerizing first instalment.
