The Begotten : A Novel of the Gifted

The Begotten : A Novel of the Gifted
Bergren, Lisa T.

An ancient prophecy threatens the foundation of the church...and those who dare to die for what they believe. The year is 1339, the height of the Inquisition. A secret half a millennium old is on the brink of being exposed. Centuries before, the Church compiled the letters written by St. Paul with other texts to form the foundation of the Christian canon. But what the world doesn't know is that Paul wrote another letter-a letter speaking of men and women who, though begotten of men, possess mysterious spiritual gifts. Now, the time has come for the Gifted to gather. The beautiful healer; the wise priest; the slave with the gift of prophecy; the knight with faith enough to leave the Church-as their talents grow more powerful, so do those who wish to destroy them. Now, they must race against time to find the rest of the Gifted ones, and to decipher the prophecy that foretold of their coming. For only by combining their powers will they vanquish those determined to destroy them, and uncover the secret of the letter that will determine the fate of the Church...and the world.


The apostle Paul wrote a letter that no one knows about, listing the names of men and women with special powers. The year is 1339, and this long kept secret is about to be divulged.
