I can't remember if the book was religious or not. I do remember the main character being really cynical about everythign but eventually loosening up with regard to his sister and the roman soldier.
Does this sound familiar to anyone? if it helps, this book was required for the jr high school academic decathlon for anyone who did the literature section in 1999. I greatly enjoyed the book and would appreciate any help towards finding it. Thanks.
I don't remember it being a difficult read. It probably was written for a younger audience since I did read it in middle school. I remember reading it around the same time I read The Thief by Megan Whalen Turner, and I know that was for sure catered to a younger audience.
As for the brief romance between the main character's sister and the soldier, I think it was mostly to emphasize his prejudice, and then later his loosening up. Sorry, its been a good 10 years since I read it, so I can't remember much else. I can't even remember if he joined the group that against Jesus or if it was supporting Jesus.
