With thousands of entrants into the Writers Digest Novel Contest this year, we thought that you might like to see the judges comments concerning Jonah in the Time of the Kings  

"...The writing is sophisticated, imbued with Mr. Barbera's passion for telling an engaging tale. The book is well structured in a way that confronts and grapples with a host of formidable plot obstacles while telling a historical religious tale that is reverential, inspiring and provocative.  The author writes an engaging narrative of his protagonist's heroic struggle, and the ancient period of time is well realized and utilized.  Jonah and the other characters, both the saints and the sinners, are, individually and collectively, certainly strong enough to carry this narrative, which prompts the reader interest in always wanting to know what will happen next..."  Mark L Judge # 58 Anthony's third novel 'Writer's Digest 2012 Fiction Contest' Judges Comments.
