AuthorHouse, 15 mars 2005 - 292 pages

Bible Maker: Jerome is a book of historical fiction about the translator of the Latin Vulgate Bible. This 4th century saint was a bridge between the Christian Church of the East and the West, serving the West as a papal secretary and monastic pioneer, but spending most of his adult life in Bethlehem in the East as a biblical exegete, translator, and monk. Bible Maker: Jerome uses the vast corpus of writings of this Doctor of the Church as the framework for a fresh look at this outspoken apologist and biblical scholar. Christianitys ascendancy in Rome under Constantine, the Arian heresy, the first two general church councils at Nicea and Constantiople. . . all were part of Jeromes controversial life. Bible Maker: Jerome is more than fiction . . . it is fascinating Church history brought to life.
