The first book in the Giants in the Earth trilogy, this compelling historical novel captures the intense spiritual, political, and personal conflict following the death and resurrection of Christ. Intrigue, romance and suspense in first-century Palestine make this another powerful novel in the respected Crossway fiction line.
  • Michael Webb has taken on the challenge of tackling the events that took place during and after the crucifixion and resurrection of Christ in the first book of the Giants in the Earth trilogy. In this fictional account, readers get a glimpse into what it may have been like for the key players in the death of Christ. The main character in this book, Deucalion Quinctus, is struggling with his lot in life since the events surrounding the death, burial, and resurrection of Christ. His involvement with Christ's death and resurrection have caused him to go against the grain and seek the truth about the Christ.

    For me, the story didn't immediately grab my attention, but I'm glad that I kept going as the story ended up drawing me in. The more I read, the more that I wanted to find out how everything ended up fitting together. The ending was unexpected, but quite good. Webb did a great job helping me travel back in time to when Christ walked the earth. It made me think about what it might have been like for all those involved in the death of Christ. While the story was fictional, it felt like it could have really taken place.

    Disclosure: I received a copy of this book to help facilitate the writing of a frank and honest review. A positive review is not guaranteed or expected.

  • If you love Christian fiction from Ted Dekker, Randy Alcorn, Paul Young, then you are going to get a real treat with "The Masters Quilt (Giants in the earth)" by Michael Webb

    For some who love to get lost in a great novel, there are just not enough great writers working in Christian Fiction. You find a new author to love, and soon you've read everything the guy has to offer. Then there is the withdrawal, the idea that there will be a new one for Christmas. My kids don't even ask me what I want for Christmas anymore. Christian fiction.

    The really good news is that I have found an author you probably don't know anything about. And he has three other published works available right now. And I even happen to know that there's another one coming shortly. The Master's Quilt is the first in a trilogy called Giants in the Earth. I have just completed this book and will be reading the other two very soon. I'll report on the others here.

    Michael Webb brings so much more than just nail biting action to the stage. He has an amazing knowledge of history and the inter-relationships of the major players during 1st Century AD. He weaves tales of deceit and manipulation that provide us one view of what might have been going on behind the scenes as Pilate, Saul of Tarsus, Herod Antipas, Caiaphas and others battled for power.

    There is seemingly never ending stream of specific anthropological, cultural, and religious insights that help us to see more clearly what the struggle between Rome, the Jews, and the new Christians was really all about. Add the spiritual realm to the equation to complete a tapestry that keeps you guessing throughout the work.

    Some reviewers on Amazon have argued that the book starts off a little slow. I would encourage every reader to give the book 50 pages. I would compare the opening to Dicken's "A Tale of Two Cities." I started that book twice, and only the third time did I finish it. The reason is the same. There are many, many characters, and they have very odd names.

    Above, I compared Michael Webb to some huge authors. He is actually a better writer than Young or Dekker. His story lines are equal to any of the three. His research is as good as Alcorn. I'll give Alcorn an edge on writing, but not by much.

  • This is one very beautiful story. My spirit soared like an eagle reading this novel. This is the third novel of Michael J Webb I have read and the third where he exhibits his flair for a well-constructed plot and well written prose. This particular novel is written beautifully, it is elegant, simple yet complicated, romantic yet full of drama. Webb's writing style immediately engages you and transports you to this era. Every day when I picked up where I left off previously, I was transported to the time of Christ's death and resurrection with all the social, political, and religious upheaval that existed between the Jews and Roman occupied Israel, specifically Jersualem in this novel.

    Webb has a flair for not just constructing well his plot but also his characters. These are well defined and you find yourself getting to know them well and due to his well constructed plot lines, you feel you are there sharing their experiences and not just as an observer or reader. This enabled me to grow fond of the main characters, be wary of others, or to despise and dare I say hate the main antagonists!! His characters are very real and relational. I have stated that in other reviews of Webb's books.

    I liken the main character of Deucalion Quinctus Cincinnatus in this novel to Gallus Sergius Vitas who is the main character in The Last Disciple trilogy by Brouwer/Hanegraaff which is also set in the same time period as this but also extends to the reign of Nero and also deals with similar issues in Webb's story. However, Webb's account in this novel is far superior and easier to read, appreciate and understand.

    I agree with Randy K, a reviewer who states on the Amazon book page for this novel,

    "For some who love to get lost in a great novel, there are just not enough great writers working in Christian Fiction . . .

    I could not have expressed this any better myself and I totally support and reinforce here Randy's findings.

    I highly recommend this novel. It has left a lasting impression on me and I look back with fondness and joy on this novel.
