What You Need to Know About Pastor Lavery

A graduate of Midwestern Baptist College in 1979, Rev. Michael H. Lavery has been pastoring the Tabernacle Baptist Church of Maywood, Illinois. Pastor Lavery shared the Word of God for over forty-two years through expository preaching.

A Short Recap of Lucius a Soldier’s Journey

In the ancient Roman empire, there lived a soldier named Lucius. Being a renowned man, he has quite a reputation to uphold, as he hailed from a military lineage as old as Rome. Furthermore, his loyalty to Caesar is unmatched, with Lucius having an iron fist that imposes the emperor’s will. However, despite his servitude, Lucius develops conflicting feelings about an empire whose lust for power is getting out of hand. He thinks the Roman Empire runs on the idea of peace as another war to fight.

This sense of justice didn’t come out of nowhere, though. Lucius’s father greatly influenced him, though the man was taken way too early in life. Despite their short time together, Lucius’ father successfully imbued his son with concepts that were far from the ways of the Romans. As a result, these ideals would be the forge of character for the young Lucius onwards. Now that he’s old enough to know better, Lucius wonders about the existence of truth until it is tested by a fateful reassignment that would mean a head-on collision with such a truth.

Upon writing this book, Pastor Lavery wanted to reach out to good men who still desire to seek the truth. Moreover, the difference between religious obligation and Biblical salvation teaches us that there’s something more than just knowing God’s truth.

It’s a matter of acknowledging His will in our lives, which can become a turning point for the truth we seek. As the author, Pastor Lavery hopes that every reader recognizes the truth of God’s grace and salvation.
