Sullivan What inspired you to write this story, mixing time travel with ancient times and customs? I grew up with a romantic, idealistic view of the church.
Over the course of many years, this view eroded, especially during the winter of — I was without money and a roof over my head, riding the E train in New York City at night. I sought help from many, including a family friend who helped run a church.
As I sat on the train pondering, I started to write this novel, drawing on some of the key childhood experiences that still touch my soul today.
And I wondered whether this was the church I wanted to be part of in the future. I found myself questioning the wrong person—Jesus Christ. So I wanted to send my characters back in time to restore the meaning of life to myself. I wanted them to experience what the true meanings of love, faith, and sacrifice really are. Tell us about your research on Roman and Biblical times.
How much is real and how much is enhanced by your imagination? I tried to stay faithful to the actual events, but I wanted to look at those events from the perspectives of the characters.

It was at an all-time low after I watched my mother die from cancer at the age of forty-seven. She suffered so greatly, and I wondered why she had to endure so much pain at such a young age.
Michael and Elizabeth both have rather volatile relationships with their fathers.
How were you able to capture teen angst so well? I have two daughters myself. As they get older, they become more independent emotionally. I utilized some real-life experiences and allowed them to unfold on the page.
How did you create the character of Leah?
I wanted to take the emotional temperature of the times, when confrontation between Jews and Roman soldiers erupted daily. I wanted to show the reader some of the normal tragedies a woman would have had to endure. The novel captures the viewpoints of a middle-aged father, a teenage girl, and a woman from Biblical times. Which character was the hardest to write? The most difficult character was Leah, because extensive research was involved.
Being of Christian background, I needed to pay particular attention to this character. Which character was easiest?
Most of the material associated with him comes purely from my heart: my experiences, my emotions, and my feelings regarding past and present relationships.
