You are a songbird. Your essence is love, yet you don't seem to be able to succeed in living in love. The songbird starts her life the way she had been conditioned by religion and tradition, and she works very hard at being the best she can be. She isn't happy, but she isn't unhappy either. She just knows something is lacking. The day comes when the songbird has no more roles to fulfil. Suddenly she realises that she has lost herself; she has no identity. Then her true journey begins. She reflects on her life, on all the experiences that made her who she is. She tries to make sense of everything, to find the meaning behind her journey. I have written this book so others may find it easier, so others don't have to go through the experiences but may learn from my life.

The ten short stories in The Centurion and the Songbird retell stories from the Gospels, each from the point of view of a character in the narrative. Stimulating and engaging, these stories read deeply into the biblical story, bringing the Bible's message and characters to life and opening hearts to new, imaginative understandings. Thaddeus, a young man worried about the life of his soul, seeks out a prophet to ask what he must do to earn eternal life. Olivia goes to Calvary to witness the death of her beloved teacher Jesus, whose life is entwined with hers and with that of her husband, Pontius Pilate. Mattathias works for a Roman centurion who seems to respect Jewish beliefs and customs. But Mattathias is confused and angered when Flavius seeks healing for his slave from the troublemaker Jesus. The companion leader's guide includes suggestions for using the stories with groups.
