The Rebirth of Nicodemus

by Rick Akins

As the Romans prepare to destroy Jerusalem and its Temple in 70 A.D., the Apostle John visits the elderly Pharisee, Nicodemus. The last surviving Apostle seeks information for his writing of the fourth Gospel.  As a young and prideful scribe, Nicodemus told King Herod where the ‘king of the Jews’ would be born. From this mistake, the children of Bethlehem were butchered. Follow the Pharisees’ interactions with Jesus as he learns to bring Christian forgiveness into his own life, while John learns the secrets to writing his dramatic account of Christ’s life.
Paperback: TBD | Kindle $9.99

TESTIMONIALS

“I really enjoyed getting to know Nicodemus’s character and found it quite creative how the author had him, in some way, involved with all the critical stages of Christ’s life. Through Nicodemus’s perspective, we see the landscape, learn of the political struggle, and experience life as a Jewish person in this first century. This was particularly evident when Nicodemus takes John to the Temple the first time to tell him about meeting Jesus when he was 12. Those descriptions, smells, details….all well done. I pray this book finds its way into the hands of thousands of people. It’s a beautiful, thoughtful story that I would recommend to any of my friends and family.” – Natalie Hanemann, Owner and Editor, Hanemann Editorial


The Rebirth of Nicodemus is a story takes you in and takes you back, being a part of the troubled times which include the destruction of the temple. It is one family’s story of being caught up in the violence and finding hope in Jesus the Son of God. Their company and guide is St. John the Beloved. The characters whose names we know from history are made vivid, living, walking souls and we become their contemporaries. It is good company I recommend you walk with them.” – Rev. Dr. Balluff S.T.D., Vicar for Priests Diocese of Joliet


“I will say I was entertained, and it was a powerful finish for sure. I found The Rebirth of Nicodemus an intriguing story which captured my imagination. I could not help but think how many of us are on similar journeys of faith. Many clinging to the past, clinging to possessions, clinging to worldly desires and our pride like an old tradition or faith. Knowing that the joy of our Lord Jesus and God is right in front of us, many times we are too afraid to take the steps forward and truly trust in Christ and his promise to us. I pray we all have this ‘Nicodemus moment.’ ‘Send your Spirit, send your Spirit like the wind Lord, forgive me, take me back!'” – Tim Botka, Director, Fishers of Men, Diocese of Joliet


The Rebirth of Nicodemus not only gives new life to Nicodemus, it brings back to life on earth to a host of first century Jews and Christians, the beloved disciple John, and Jesus Christ, Who loved him and loves us all. This book is masterful historical and biblical fiction. I can only imagine how many hours Rick Akins spent in research and in weaving this story together, but I know he has provided every reader a few hours of inspiration and delight.” – Kevin Vost, Psy.D., Author of 12 Eternal Life Lessons from St. Thomas Aquinas


“In The Rebirth of Nicodemus, Rick Akins give us a unique and reverent take on a story of a turbulent time – and the timeless story of Jesus – a devotional speculation of beautiful connections told through the conversations of beloved Gospel characters, against the backdrop of the fall of Jerusalem and the destruction of the Temple. A worthy addition to the tradition of biblical historical fiction!” – Jim L. Papandrea, M.Div., Ph.D., Professor of Church History and Historical Theology

TESTIMONIALS

“In Children of Slate, Thom Brucie explores belief, reason, and sensuality in a way that I have not seen before. Rather than pitting these qualities against each other, Brucie interweaves them convincingly in the lives and minds of his characters. The result? An honest exploration of faith. A thought-provoking read. – Mark Ezra Stokes, Founder of Holistic Storyteller

“Thom Brucie’s latest novel, Children of Slate, takes a close look at the relationships between faith, love, hope, and miracles and reveals that love tempers all the rest when supported by faith and the “eyes to see” and “ears to hear” the presence of God and his miracles in all aspects of an unknown future. – Ronald Hugar, PhD, Rhetorician, University of Indianapolis

“Thom Brucie’s Children of Slate is a beautifully written book about the spiritual battles of a young seminarian, who is struggling with monastic life and the vow of celibacy. Very revealing with a gripping poetic ending. It’s a must read by a great writer.” – Joe Avalos, author of Cry Oneness

TESTIMONIALS

Readers of Children of the Breath will doubtless be reminded of other writers who have tackled the great scriptural themes. The formidable Satan of Milton’s Paradise Lost and the silent loving Christ of Dostoevsky’s The Grand Inquisitor come easily to mind. – Gabriel Meyer, National Catholic Register

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Martin Chervin, author of Children of the Breath, and two plays: Born/Unborn and Myself: Alma Mahler, was born in 1918 on the Lower East Side of New York City to a Polish Jewish family. His fascination with Jesus began as a boy reading a New Testament he found in the public library. Later as a sea man and then as an international bookseller, Martin pondered the claim of the Jewish prophet to be the Son of God and the Saviour of all mankind. At forty-three, Martin married Ronda, a zealous Hebrew-Catholic philosopher. Fathering Carla, Diana and Charles, raised as Catholics, intensified his interest in the figure of Christ.

Sisters Karamazov

by Natalie Karamazov

“So what kind of a title is that Hmmph! The Sisters Karamazov? So you think you’re a female Dostoevsky? Isn’t that more than a little arrogant?”
Let me explain. The idea for writing this fictionalized account of my life came in this way. A friend of mine once announced proudly: “I’m reading the famous Brothers Karamazov by Dostoevsky.” “You may not believe it,” I replied grinning, “but Karamazov was my mother’s maiden name!”
In this way begins the rollicking fictionalized autobiography of 3 generations of sisters living in the USA but of Russian-Jewish ancestry. An enmeshment of drama-queens, a psychologist might describe it. A story of redemption, a theologian might describe it. How will you, my reader, describe it?

WRITE A REVIEW BETTER THAN THESE

Halfway Decent Praise for the Book:

“One of the best doorstops I’ve ever had.” – Hilin NaoumS.C.’s wife


“I laughed until I cried. After this book, Catholics are going to have to work even harder to make everyone think we’re boring.” – Jennifer Fulwiler, #4 Google search result for “socially awkward person”


“This book is terrible. Okay, it’s awesome. Or is it? Buy it now to find out or get ten years of bad luck.” – Matt Fradd, author of Does God Exist? A Socratic Dialogue on the Five Ways of St. Thomas Aquinas


“G.K. Chesterton once observed, ‘It is the test of a good religion whether you can joke about it.’ If that’s true, then Catholicism must be a very good religion. For years, S.C. has brought levity and light to somber corners of the Catholic blogosphere through his Eye of the Tiber blog. Now, thanks to this delightful new book, that hilarity will spread even further. Read it, smile, laugh, and let it lighten your soul.” – Brandon Vogt, author of RETURN and founder of StrangeNotions.com


“The author used to work at Catholic Answers but left us for something more exciting. When that didn’t pan out, he fell into depression. The result was Eye of the Tiber.” – Karl Keating, founder of Catholic Answers

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

S.C. Naoum is the founder and Chief Executive Oligarch of Eye of the Tiber.
