Johnnie Howell, a veteran, husband, father, Christian, devoted writer and author, has completed his newest work “Simon of Cyrene”: a gripping and potent story about life and conviction.

Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, Johnnie Howell’s spiritual work depicts and passionately illustrates a biblical story.

Simon, a child of a black slave, is born on the same night as the son of his Jewish master. Both boys grow up together, but live very different lives. Although Simon becomes a proselyte to the Jewish faith, he is betrayed and forced to fight in the arena as a gladiator. Eventually, all the events of his life lead him to one point in time. While attending the feast of the Passover, he is forced to carry a criminal’s cross, and yet he meets the one he has heard called Jesus of Nazareth. The Messiah of the world is now to be nailed and hung as a criminal.

Readers who wish to experience this inspiring work can purchase“Simon of Cyrene” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play or Barnes and Noble.
