In a time of religious upheaval and civil war in a country where men of different faiths can never be brothers, three slaves must keep a date with destiny. Death, destruction and the persecution of an entire nation at the hands of the Roman army set the stage for "The Idumean Covenant: A Novel of the Fall of Jerusalem." Abraham’s twin grandsons, Jacob and Esau, were bitter enemies. Jacob’s descendants, the Judeans become God’s chosen people and Esau’s descendants, the Idumeans, become the people that God hated and despised.God’s prophets tell the Judeans, Isaiah and Ezehiel, to rob and even kill Idumeans. Inexplicably, however, Titus Flavius Josephus relates in his Jewish Wars that the insurrectionists against Rome called upon the Idumeans for support in order to prevent the Judean sect of Sadducees from turning Jerusalem over to the Romans. Can it be that the revered historian had a secret agenda? The Idumean Covenant is a locomotive taking the intelligent reader on a historical adventure of cynical plots, unconventional alliances and impossible loves pitting the most powerful men of the Roman Empire against each other.
