“It offers the reader an opportunity to witness an average man who is given the rare opportunity to have a one-on-one conversation with Jesus.”

Imagine being the Roman soldier given the task of guarding the cell of a special man, Jesus Christ. Wayne Michael O’Connor’s new book, The Man in the Cell ($14.99, paperback, 978-1-61996-328-3; $22.99, hardcover, 978-1-61996-329-0; $7.49, eBook, 978-1-61996-331-3), tells the story of Archarius, a soldier from a well known military family whose heart has been hardened after years of disappointment stemming from various circumstances and people, a man who unknowingly accepts the responsibility of guarding the cell containing Jesus Christ. What happens in those hours will serve as the catalyst for Archarius’s new life and new journey.

“Although the debate regarding faith takes place between Jesus and a Roman soldier, many of the questions are relevant to today. The question and answer format allows the readers to see their own questions or issues addressed or clarified. The Roman historical setting will serve as vehicle to attract readers who would not normally pick up a Christian book,” states the author. “It offers the reader an opportunity to witness an average man who is given the rare opportunity to have a one-on-one conversation with Jesus.”

Wayne Michael O’Connor is an avid reader and history buff. This is his first novel, which was an inspiration that came to him on one blessed morning and has been written for the glory of God. O’Connor and his wife, Karen, currently reside in North Haven, Connecticut.
