Destitutio Quod Remissio by Brett Armstrong is a historical novel, an epic tale of one man’s persecution. Marcus Servius, a Roman Senator, spent years building up his life and his wealth. But it’s all about to come tumbling down as he is exposed for what he is – a Christian. He loses everything; his whole life, his possessions, and the wealth he worked so hard for are taken from him, but the loss of his wife is the worst, too much to bear. A poor and broken man, Marcus prays for deliverance from the hands of his persecutors. He disguises himself and undertakes a dangerous journey to look for a man named Ben Truvias. Ben leads a hidden church and is the man responsible for converting Marcus. He gives Marcus hope and a new direction. But will Marcus discover who outed him as a Christian? Is his life in danger the closer he draws to the truth? And which should he choose – revenge or forgiveness?
Destitutio Quod Remissio by Brett Armstrong had a definite wow factor to it. It’s a strong story about a subject that is perhaps a little too close for comfort right now, given world events, but I have to say Mr. Armstrong has done a fine job here. It’s a really well written book, clearly the product of a great deal of work and research and it shows. It was one of those books where you put it down at night wondering what’s going to happen next and where the book is going to take you. Amazing story, excellent writing.
