Risen – the NOVEL. The Story of the Resurrection as You’ve Never Seen It Before. This is the novelisation of Risen the Movie released at selected NZ cinemas just before Easter 2016.
Acclaimed author Angela Hunt enriches the on screen story of Risen, offering readers another way to experience one of the most thrilling and impacting manhunt’s in history.
Epic in scope, yet deeply personal, this novelization offers a unique perspective on the story of the resurrection. Roman Tribune Clavius is assigned by Pilate to keep the radical followers of the recently executed Yeshua from stealing the body and inciting revolution. When the body goes missing despite his precautions, Clavius must hunt it down.
His investigation leads him from the halls of Herod Antipas to the Garden of Gethsemane and brings him in touch with believer and doubter alike. But as the body still remains missing, Clavius commits to a quest for the truth–and answers that will not only shake his life but echo throughout all of history.
