About the Book

The life of Deucalion Quinctus, Commander of the Garrison under Pontius Pilate, is changed forever by the crucifixion, burial, and resurrection of Jesus of Nazareth, by his sudden love for the beautiful outcast, Esther, and by a bundle of parchments given to him by a mysterious stranger.

Events surrounding the Christos trigger an avalanche which threatens empires””the relentless guilt of Pilate, the frightening ambition of Herod, the uncertain future of Caiaphas, the violent madness of Saul of Tarsus, and the guiding hand of the Watcher, Uriel. Yet, over it all the tenacious love of God weaves a remarkable tale of spiritual power and inspiration.

This compelling historical suspense novel full of mystery brilliantly pictures dramatic spiritual conflicts in first-century Israel; webs of religious and political intrigue that have world powers wavering on cliff’s edge.

First book in the Giants in the Earth trilogy, exciting spiritual thrillers spanning two thousand years.


For some who love to get lost in a great novel, there are just not enough great writers working in Christian Fiction . . . The really good news is that I have found an author you probably don’t know anything about . . . Michael Webb brings so much more than just nail-biting action to the stage. He has an amazing knowledge of history and the inter-relationships of the major players during 1st Century AD. He weaves tales of deceit and manipulation that provide us one view of what might have been going on behind the scenes as Pilate, Saul of Tarsus, Herod Antipas, Caiaphas and others battled for power.

There is seemingly never ending stream of specific anthropological, cultural, and religious insights that help us to see more clearly what the struggle between Rome, the Jews, and the new Christians was really all about. Add the spiritual realm to the equation to complete a tapestry that keeps you guessing throughout the work . . .

˃˃˃ A RABBINIC STORYTELLER If the best stories are based upon the mortal conflict between spiritual forces of good and evil, The Master's Quilt lays out the battle plan in a rich tapestry of character and plot. Michael Webb has spent the time necessary to research and portray this fight with the integrity of a rabbinic scholar in a fast-paced novel. Those interested in reading a book steeped in knowledge of present day supernatural events linked to the dynamic early days of the New Testament church will enjoy this story.
– Robert Whitlow, Christie Award Winner and Bestselling Author of "The Choice"
Above, I compared Michael Webb to some huge authors. He is actually a better writer than Young or Dekker. His story lines are equal to any of the three. His research is as good as Alcorn. I'll give Alcorn an edge on writing, but not by much.

About the Author
Michael Jack Webb

I’ve loved reading books ever since I can remember. Now I’m writing them. I have always been and will continue to be an eclectic reader. I enjoy reading about such diverse topics as quantum physics, forbidden history, angels and demons, paleontology and archaeology, science fiction, and fantasy.

One of my passions is history, and I incorporate both ancient and modern history into my thrillers.

Since I was twelve and took my first solo train ride, I’ve also loved to travel. Many of the locations in my novels are places I’ve visited personally. Some of the rest are places I’d love to see. I went to Europe with two buddies right out of high school, then went back as an exchange student in Holland a couple of years later, which fueled my desire for seeing the world. I’ve climbed mountains in the Rockies and the Alps, swam in both the Dead and the Red Seas, scuba-dived in the Florida Keys and the Cayman Islands, snorkeled the U.S. and British Virgin Islands, and hiked extensively throughout the United States, Canada, and Israel.

After graduating summa cum laude with a BA in History from the University of Florida, I went to law school and obtained my J.D. at the same university. Then I went into the business world, where I’ve been ever since.

My wife and I live in North Carolina with our parrot, where we are planning our next adventures.
