This is a profound epic of Jesus' life portraying a vast panorama of his missionary work through the eyes and dialogue of the people who meet Jesus and interact with him in various encounters. Major historic events taking place during his era are reenacted showing the dramatic conflicts between Augustus Caesar and Herod the Great. Deeply ingrained political intrigue, cultural values, religious traditions are set against Prince Yehohshua's (Jesus) popularity who fights against corruption. The personalities of the disciples are thoroughly drawn with individualized thoughts and actions. Herod Antipas, Pilate, Salome, Herodias, Caiaphas, plus others are presented with rich characterizations. Interpretation and prophecy is weaved in the book in a non-proselytizing manner, re-cast as though a novel. This is an ambitious and bold masterpiece, written without restraint for the readers of today who expect more than familiar storytelling.
--Kirkus Review, Oct 31, 2013
"The author interposes a broad mix of history, fiction and the supernatural to create a portrait of epic proportions. ... The story is noteworthy for its breadth of context ... An ambitious novel."
