A HISTORICAL ROMANCE. BY GEORGE CROLY.
Introduction by Gen- Lew Wallace
A historical novel, dealing with the momentous events that occurred,
chiefly in Palestine, from the time of the crucifixion to the destruction
of Jerusalem. It reveals the strugglos between tho Romans and the
Jews, which finally ended in tho overthrow and the disporsion of the
Jewish nation, picturing forth tho conflict botweon Judaism and early
Christianity. The book, as a story, is replete with Oriental charm and
richness, and the character-drawing is marvelous. No other novel over
written has portrayod with such vividness the events that convulsed
Borne and destroyed Jerusalom in the early days of Christianity.
