 About the Book 

.I was simply witnessing an unusual weather-storm for this time of year. That this man was being crucified at the same time was mere coincidence. And, I believed that. Until, that is, the Earth shook. It only lasted for a moment, the shaking. But,More.I was simply witnessing an unusual weather-storm for this time of year. That this man was being crucified at the same time was mere coincidence. And, I believed that. Until, that is, the Earth shook. It only lasted for a moment, the shaking. But, it left no doubt in my mind that it was directly correlated to this dying man on the cross. Who was the Roman centurion that stabbed Jesus while the condemned one hung from the cross? What became of him and his legendary spear? Longinus: Book I of the Merlin Factor tells the story of Gaius Cassius Longinus, the battle-hardened centurion of Rome who is assigned to guard the crucified Jesus. But while guarding Jesus, Longinus stabs him in the ribs with his spear, ensuring Jesuss death. It is a simple act, but one that changes his life forever. After that fateful day Longinus flees Rome, narrowly escaping from the Roman priests who want to take the spear and its supposed power for themselves. Longinus follows the centurions life from his love for the prostitute Irena to his mystical studies with the Druids of Gaul. But it also reveals Longinuss profound spiritual awakening through his Druidic studies and the spear that speaks to him with Jesuss voice.
