Item Description...
This panoramic novel of the last days of Christ ranges from the palaces of imperial Rome to the strife-torn hills of Judea - where the conflict of love and betrayal, revenge and redemption, reaches a mighty climax in the drama of the Crucifixion. For this is the full story of the world's most dramatic execution, as it affected one of its least-known participants - the man who hurled his spear into Christ on the Cross.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
The Spear; an aid to enlightenment  Feb 8, 2008
I loved this book. I recommended it to a blind friend who got it on tape too. It helped me to put names, ego's, and Id's on many of the "bit" players of the passion of the Christ. It moved me much. It was very believable, although fictionalized history so to speak. I was not too happy with the sexual episode in the dark, although is lent reason to much of what occurred thereafter. Every adult should read this.
A Finely Woven Tapestry  Jan 21, 2001
De Wohl's effort to portray the last days of our Lord's life through the eyes of a somewhat callous and hardened Roman centurian, Longinus, is wonderfully played out in this novel.

De Wohl does justice to many of our biblically familiar characters (i.e., Martha, Mary, Caiaphas). This novel is well researched and will take you back in time to get a glimpse of the social and political climate in which the Son of Man entered history and changed it forever.

The story of the crucifixion is compelling in and of itself. De Wohl's best credit is that he doesn't ruin it. He lets the story evolve and he does not indulge in the temptation that most, I gather, would have in writing about God. He doesn't purport to know the mind of Christ.

Buy the book. It is a clear and orthodox presentation of Our Lord which every person would benefit from reading. Christian, non-Christian, protestant, Catholic; all will enjoy this novel.

Good, but....  Nov 10, 2000
The writing is excellent, the plot is well thought out and tied together, it's historically accurate. Overall, one of the best Christian fiction pieces I've read--right up until the end.... It would be a 5, if it weren't for the emphasis on Peter as the 'leader of the Apostles' and Mary at the end, which begins to smack of Catholic lore, rather than fiction wrapped around true events.
De Wohl's masterpiece  Sep 5, 1999
This is the best novel that deals with Christ's life, death, and Resurrection that I've ever read. It's solidly, unabashedly orthodox and pulls together the Gospel accounts in a brilliant weave of history and imagination. Unlike other novels of the genre, it doesn't try to "explain away" the supernatural... it simply presents it and invites the reader to believe. But it also does not attempt to enter into either the mind of the God-Man Jesus Christ or his immaculately conceived mother Mary. Although HIDDEN VICTORY by Fr. Herbert Smith, S. J., does an admirable job of trying to understand what God and the Blessed Virgin Mary may have thought and felt, I also appreciated De Wohl's implicit understanding that such a task is impossible. While the meditation might be fruitful, it is also something to approach cautiously.

This is why I think De Wohl's technique of presenting the story from St. Longinus' point of view, rather than Christ's or Mary's, works so well. Here is someone like ourselves, sinful as we are sinful, who tries to grasp the cosmic events swirling around him. When, by God's grace, he is brought to belief, we cheer and see our own struggles reflected in his while praying for the same triumph that he experienced.

All this sounds very lofty. I hope I haven't scared off people who are simply looking for an entertaining novel. Those people will find such a novel in THE SPEAR, but they will also find so much more!

Powerful, realistic portrayal of a man's journey to faith...  Jun 9, 1999
I was moved by this beautifully written story of Longinus, the Roman soldier believed to have been present at Christ's crucifixion. Not only is this an interesting look at Rome and Israel 2,000 years ago, but it is most importantly a powerful story of Longinus' conversion from a bitter, revenge-driven man to a repentent, joy-filled soul. Inspiring, and a very good read!
