A novel approach to a biblical tale is the winner of the 2023 New England Book Festival, which honors the best of the holiday season.

Authors Jerry Lathan and Steven Manchester’s You Will Be Peter  is an historical biographical novel. The spiritual yet modern work captures the three-year ministry of Jesus Christ through the eyes of Simon Peter, the Everyman who started a movement that lasts two thousand years. The story reads like a gripping, page-turning novel and illuminates an oft-told tale in a unique way.
