The Grain Chaser

by Morgan Moore

The Grain Chaser is an Adventure Story, a short novel of 18,300 words. It traces a fictional journey of real Biblical characters, Simon of Cyrene, and his two sons, on a mission to help their Village in Cyrenaica, which is foundering economically due to the loss of its mainstay, Sylphium, an important drug producing plant which grows nowhere else and is impossible to cultivate.

A militant agnostic, Simon is conscripted into services as an informer for Rome and eventually, in that role, helps carry Christ’s cross with unexpected consequences.

He, his two sons and others, are drawn into the New Way, each pursuing his own destiny. In old age, Simon defends a major point of New Way theology, involving the use of Grain, and earns a nickname.
