    This review was written for The Advocate.
    Randy Singers The Advocate is a dramatic story about a Roman named Theophilus from his days as a student through his maturing years. The author portrays the history of Rome during the days when the Caesars were to be worshiped and exalted as well as many other pagan gods. The story of Jesus trial, death and resurrection is key to the plot that unfolds as Theophilus is witness to what he sees as the death of an innocent man. Theophilus serves in several key offices in the Roman government. Working under Pontius Pilate was one of his early positions. Then he proved himself in the legal ranks of the Roman Empire often times speaking up on behalf of unpopular or not politically correct issues. The times of the gladiators and the tortuous punishment of criminals in the arena is also vividly depicted. The days of Romes demise begin to be seen through the eyes of Theophilus as he tells the story of his life. The loss of a friend to cruel and brutal entertainment gives him the chance to win the love of his own heart. Paul of Tarsus is part of the story, too, and Theophilus faces the challenge of another unpopular representation as well as the challenge to decide for his own spiritual life. A very intriguing and interesting story is shared by this author. I appreciated the great detail of the historical background. The story comes alive as it unfolds; quite believable even though it is a work of fiction. Inspirational and thought provoking as it presents the Gospel for those who do not yet believe. Ones time is not wasted in reading and learning from this mans work.

    This reminds me of a courtroom drama, only better, with more depth and intensity. Mr. Singer is masterful at drawing us into the world of the first century. The historical scenes and figures were fascinating. He portrayed them from the viewpoint of Theophilus, the advocate, then he created narratives from various other viewpoints, making a compelling drama. He used real figures and added details, extra characters, and dialogue that really sound feasible. I loved the quotations from philosophers. It is a tragic story but has a message of hope. The research really made this exceptional.

    The Advocate by Randy Singer was an interesting novel set at the trial of Jesus. Theophilus is a smart young man who was raised as a Roman aristocrat and works around Pontius Pilate. During the trial, he whispers to Pontius Pilate to offer the crowd of people to release Barabbas in exchange for Jesus. However, this plan doesn't go as was hoped and Jesus's death has affected Theophilus for the rest of his life. About thirty years later, Theophilus has had much success in the empire, endured countless hardships, and survived the cruelties of Roman emperors. However, things are about to get worse when Paul must stand before Nero. Theophilus defends Paul and is determined not to allow another innocent man become victim to Roman justice again. Will Theophilus be able to save Paul from an execution? This was a great novel and I loved the historical aspect of the book and I found the story to be so captivating. Another great book by Randy Singer.

    Oh my were to start with this review. Last year during the Tyndale Summer Reading Program was my first introduction to Randy Singer and I fell in love. He is a former trial attorney and writes gripping legal tales. I have acquired several of his books but this is only the second that I have had time to read. This is an epic novel. He said it took him five years to write and he now has great respect for those who write historical fiction as the research and mindset you have to get in to is a lot of hard work.

    The Advocate is set in Rome during the time of Jesus and afterwards to when Nero is emperor. It follows an advocate (lawyer) named Theophilus. The story starts with him as a teenager going through school and documents is life through being an adviser to Pontius Pilate when Jesus is crucified to Peter being on trial in Rome to Nero persecuting Christians. It goes through so much Roman history and was just fascinating. It felt like I went on this amazing journey by the time the book was over. If you read no other book this summer this is the one you MUST read. It was amazing.

    This review was written for The Advocate.
    Luke, a Greek physician, Christian, and companion of the Apostle Paul, compiled the first 2-volume history of the Christian church. We know them, respectively, as The Gospel Of Luke and The Book Of Acts. You can find them in the New Testament portion of the Bible.

    These books were each addressed to an enigmatic personage, Theophilus. Whether Theophilus was an historical figure, or whether this was a play on words (Theophilus literally means, "Lover of God") is still being debated. Acclaimed author Randy Singer has taken the character of Theophilus and crafted an excellent book that centers around this young man's training and subsequent career as a lawyer in the courts of Rome during the time of Christ.

    As assessore for Pontius Pilate, Theophilus has a ring-side seat as the greatest story ever told unfolds before his very eyes. He is the one who suggested that Pilate offer the release of Barabbas, certain that the crowd would release the innocent man, Jesus, instead.

    The plan backfired, and Theophilus would forever live with the thought that he was instrumental in the death of an innocent man.

    Many years, and two Caesars later, Theophilus is once again tasked with the defense of an innocent man, the Apostle Paul. However, with age comes wisdom, and this time Theophilus can no longer be a disinterested bystander. It's not just Paul's life that hangs in the balance.

    Rich with historical and cultural detail, and passionate with the mental, emotional, and philosophical forces of the day, The Advocate is a book that will help you understand the context of Christianity, and cause you to re-examine your own beliefs concerning the Jesus of history.

    Reviewer's disclaimer: Randy Singer pulls no punches. There are scenes that may be considered too graphic for the younger reader.
