Rodger's New Novel, The Sign of the Dolphin

11

My new novel, The Sign of the Dolphin, the second volume in the SCRIBES series, is now available in both electronic and printed form through Amazon.com. It wrestles with the problem of the text of the Acts of the Apostles, and is the story of a missionary journey in the late second century through Gaul and Britain. I have used history and legend, manuscripts, artworks and imagination to introduce readers to the world of the early Christian scribes and the challenges they face. I hope my fellow members of this blogspot and other readers will find in it “a novel approach to New Testament textual criticism.”

  3. Scribes was a lot of fun to read--I loved the philosophical pirate! Glad to know that there's another volume. Will you be writing more in this series?

  4. Greg, Thanks for the encouraging word. At Least one more volume is planned. It is called "The Pelican and the Phoenix," and features differences between the African and European Latin texts, and the young Tertullian, on his way toward Christian belief. Peter

  7. Does it follow the two characters from The Scribes after their marriage?

  8. They appear in the novel, but Justin is in Rome, while Juliana has to attend to business in Alexandria. In vol 2 Justin begins a strong friendship and lively conversation with Theodotion, the late second century translator of the version of the LXX. That senario was a lot of un to create.
