About the book-
The Waiting Cross is author P. F. Bottom’s latest novel based on the life of St. Luke, the only Gentile writer in the New Testament.
In the creation of The Waiting Cross, P. F. Bottom spent countless hours researching Greek and Roman history as well as archaeology and its relationship to the accuracy of Luke’s writings.
The quest to look beyond the life of an extraordinary man, P. F. Bottom investigates Luke as, not only a physician, but a historian, artist and follower of Jesus Christ.
One can’t help but wonder: Was Silas actually Luke’s brother? What type of relationship did Luke develop with Paul? What events sculpted Luke’s views and who were the people he interviewed to write the book of Luke?
In a fascinating fictional journey into the life of Luke, P.F. Bottom explores the nature and growth of early Christianity, the Apostles, and the events leading up to Luke’s role as an author and historian.
