About the Book

Lucian was born on a farm in the upper Euphrates River valley during the middle of the third century. This book is a story about three priests: Paul, Eusebius, and Lucian. The story concerns birth, love, travel, religion, and death. The farm was owned by Thomas and his wife, Mary. They had many children, but Lucian was their youngest child. He lived in Samosata with his sister Ruth and her husband, Dr. Luke. Lucian was noted for his critical review of many early New Testament scriptures and his review of Old Testament translations. It is a story concerning the formation of the New Testament and the problems within the church following the destruction of Antioch by the Persians.

About the Author

The author served in the U.S. Navy and then went to college. After graduating with an engineering degree, he enjoyed careers (50 yrs.) as an engineer, businessman, and professor. He is now retired but writes novels. While reading the New Testament for over sixty years and teaching Sunday School Bible classes for twenty years, Fellow John Mench Ph.D. has been conflicted by the lack of personality within the testament. He endeavors to add perspective to the message of the testament by creating lives for those who wrote and developed Jesus’ message. Other books available from WestBow Press that I have written include: Paul - (John the Baptist – Jesus) John Mark – (Born in Africa – Martyred in Africa) John - (John the Youngest – John the Oldest) Polycarp – (A Student of John) Hippolytus – (The First Antipope) Constantine – (Helena – Nicaea – Dead Sea Scrolls)
