R. A. Horne


An old spiritual asks the question, “Where were you when they crucified my Lord?”

John, the Beloved Disciple, was there, under the Cross, on Jesus’ left.

I WAS THERE is a novel that purports to be the first person autobiography of the disciple who Jesus loved, written down or dictated by him many years after Jesus’ death, in Ephesus where he had fled with Mary. It purports to be the “lost book of John” upon which another John based his gospel.

It retells many of the familiar Bible stories, but it also tells of John’s faith, his love, his doubts, the burdens of extreme old age, of the first followers of Jesus, and of John’s death.

Sobre l'autor (2005)


R. A. Horne has had two writing careers, scientific papers and advanced textbooks and in more recent years poetry, novels, short fiction, and nonfiction book reviews.  One of his graduate degrees is in philosophy and this interest expanded into an interest in religion.  He spent years reading through the great books of the world’s faiths, but the BIBLE easily remained “the greatest story ever told.”  In I WAS THERE he tries to retell the familiar stories, although of course no one can improve on the splendid language of the King James translation, and to add some new stories of his own imaginative creation.
