CLEARLAKE Wild About Books welcomes author William Edmunds to talk about “All Roads Lead to Zion” by Paracletus Press, on Saturday, April 26, from 12 p.m. to 2 p.m.

A story that provides an intricate picture of the events that surrounded the time preceding and following the day when a young Galilean rabbi was executed from a unique point of view that of the Roman Commander of Fort Antonio in Jerusalem.

“Rome would not have sat on its hands,” Edmunds speculated. “A Roman seal had been broken and the unit charged to guard the tomb upon which it had been placed was compromised. What would Rome have done?”

“All Roads Lead to Zion” is his answer to that question.

“Restore order and keep the peace ...” So read the orders of Emperor Tiberius to a veteran Roman officer assigned to the rebellious nation of Judea.

More than 1,400 miles from the seat of government, undermanned and under financed, Centurion Gaius Julius Cominus struggles to maintain order. As tens of thousands of Jews gather in Jerusalem for Passover, a madman haunts the roads to Zion bent on the murder and plunder of Roman citizens, while a young rabbi, heralded by many as the Messiah, spurs political intrigue and mutterings of rebellion. Peace is not going to come easy.

William (Bill) Edmunds, a retired police command officer and freelance Christian author has done an extensive study on the Passover traditions practiced at the time of Christ. Bill and his wife Joan lead the Healing Rooms of Lake County each Thursday evening at the Neighborhood Christian Fellowship in Clearlake and every first and third Monday at the New Life Foursquare Church in Lakeport.

Wild About Books is located at 14290 Olympic Drive in Clearlake, next door to Lisa's clothing store.
