The Fugitives of Gethsemane: The Three Days Following the Crucifixion of Jesus


72 Hours That Changed the World
Here is the newest novel from celebrated
author D. S. Lliteras about the three days
following the crucifixion of Jesus
“Easily one of the best authors
of biblical fiction today” —Library Journal


The Fugitives of Gethsemane dramatizes the story about four apostles during the 3 days between the crucifixion and the resurrection of Jesus. It explores the paradox that wanting believers must overcome while struggling to understand the essence of the Christian faith. It is a creed that cannot be learned — it must be experienced by those pondering the complexity of its teachings.

This book does not attempt to explain the unexplainable. But it does dramatize the efforts of four disciples hoping to find trust and belief in the lord, Jesus. So throw away your ordinary reason. This is the ancient mystery of belief, as it is . . .

No matter at what level your belief is, this tome of biblical fiction is written in such a captivating style, flush with fluid narrative and made accessible to read without being waylaid with heavy religious facts, that I would highly recommend it to anyone even curiously interested in what happened in those three days following the Crucifixion of Jesus.”—Anne Carlini, Exclusive Magazine
