Mark Hobson visited the library in December to talk about his book The Mantle.
The Mantle is about "the cloth" that covered the head of Jesus in death, known as "The Mantle," and about those who possess it. The mantle of Jesus is first made known in the Gospel of John, found in the empty tomb after the resurrection.
The first book in a trilogy, The Mantle is written in alternating chapters of the mantle's past and the present. It's based on Scripture, tradition, and the author's own imagination.
Mark Hobson is an ordained Christian minister with advanced degrees in theology, business administration, higher education administration, and neuroscience.
