This is a magnificent historical novel about the life of the first century Greek miracle worker and holy man, and a contemporary of Christ (Apollonius' birth was purported to be in the year 2 AD), based on the only known biography, written by the second century Roman historian Philostratus. Apollonius of Tyana was widely regarded in the ancient world as an equal of Jesus for the first two centuries AD until the emperor Constantine decreed that the Roman Empire was Christian, and destroyed the records of other holy men by burning the libraries. Meticulously researched and beautifully composed, Mr. DiFazio's novel transports the reader to the sights, smells and flavors of the ancient world, and reincarnates one of the great men forgotten by history.  Preview chapter one.

Chuck and his wife Patty live in Middletown, Connecticut.  They are devotees of the Indian avatar Sathya Sai Baba, whose vedantic teachings inspired much of the novel. 

Chuck's first book, FROM WHERE DID YOU COME? is an autobiographical account of how his spiritual quest led him to the feet of Sai Baba.
