Review: The Siver Chalice by Thomas B. Costain

This historical novel takes place in biblical times and tells the story of Basil, a young sculptor illegally sold into slavery. Because of his talent, his freedom is bought back by Luke, one of Jesus’ apostles. He is commissioned to create a silver chalice that will hold the cup used by Jesus during the last supper. The author presents a detailed account of the  early struggles of Christianity in the time of the Romans. The characters are well done and the plot, more captivating as the story progresses, includes a touching love story. This is the second reading for me, having read and loved it in high school. It has remained an authentic page-turner to be placed on my shelf of classics.
