Why a book about crucifixion?

Best-selling journalist Stephen M. Miller was curious about crucifixion—the brutal method used to execute Jesus Christ. He dug into eyewitness testimonies from Roman history about the cross, and then he shared his findings in a short YouTube video. It turned into a viral sensation, with over 1.7 million views!

Now for the first time in book form, Miller reveals his fascinating full work, shining a spotlight on the shadowy history of Roman crucifixion. In Eyewitness to Crucifixion you’ll:

  • Gain new understanding from real people who actually witnessed the horror of the cross
  • Discover previously obscured scholarly knowledge, now translated into casual English for everyone
  • Examine the historical context for the Christian faith as seen through first-century eyes
  • See for yourself the unvarnished, un-hyped truth about crucifixion—and make your own decisions about related, current controversies of faith
  • Learn more about the historical Jesus and his mission

“I can't recommend this book enough. As an atheist I get very tired of having to explain Christian texts and texts from antiquity that refer to Christianity to Christians."

“I read virtually all of this book in one day…The book is an interesting hybrid of high-brow reference material—discussed in a mostly non-academic and chatty style. It takes a bit of getting used to—like feta-cheese and cranberry jelly—but once you get used to it, it's quite endearing.”

“Eyewitness to Crucifixion is a fascinating, well-researched read with a range of quotes, poetry, and historically documented facts about the practice of crucifixion from Roman figures before, during, and after the time of Christ."
