in line with a real tale, Onesimus is the story of a tender, unsatisfied slave who lived throughout the first century Roman Empire. the area is a hugely dependent society of deities, slaves, masters, prostitutes, govt corruption, soldiers—with little chance to maneuver out of one’s position. yet he has a plan to turn into loose and make whatever of himself—until he's betrayed. His reaction leads him on a direction of chance, deceit, and discovery until eventually he comes into touch with a well-known chief of a tender new faith in line with the Jewish religion. What he reveals will attempt his will and his braveness, and during it, Onesimus turns into a part of essentially the most fascinating tales in history.

“…a clean examine the Christian religion at its inception, throughout the eyes of a pagan slave… a desirable tale of affection and betrayal, deception and revelation, and the hunt for integrity in an international of self-aggrandizement.”
—John Sparks, old Fiction Review

“McDowell’s intensity of data and learn into the first-century Roman international and early Christianity made me consider like I’d long gone again in time. The tradition, the folks, the meals, and the ideals have been so enticing, i discovered myself arguing with the characters—many of whom are historic figures.”
—Jane Elizabeth Thomas, author
