About the Book

Tell It Abroad introduces Andronicus, the third son of Simon of Cyrene, the bystander conscripted by the Roman centurions to assist Jesus of Nazareth in carrying his cross to Golgotha. Moyer adds flesh and bone to the brief mention of Andronicus in Paul’s letter to the Romans, “Greet Andronicus and Junias, my kinsmen and my fellow prisoners; they are men of note among the apostles, and they were in Christ before me.”
The novel presents Andronicus’s life and witness as he tells others of how Jesus healed and empowered him. He relates the story of crossing paths with Jesus at His crucifixion, receiving healing, living in the community among those who witnessed Jesus’s resurrection and then telling the Good News abroad to Rome. Moyer, an ordained minister, weaves together scriptural details and vividly drawn characters in this historical Christian novel.
In this novel, a young man finds himself poised at the crossroads of secular history and the growth of the early church.
