A life-changing look at Jesus through the cultural context of his day. Childrens lit, but a must-read for adults! I loved this and have recommended it to many others.

A classic! As a Christian and enthusiast of world religions, I loved seeing Christ through the eyes of the Jewish people of his time, especially the youth. An excellent read!

This is a great book! It's about a young man named Daniel who ran away from home five years ago. He was very mad at the Romans so he joined a band, The leader's name was Rosh. Then Simon the Zealot (the town's black smith) leaves and decides to join Jesus Daniel goes to take the trade and brings his demon possessed sister (Leah) along with him. He starts his own band and rescues his friend Jacob but doing so his friend dies. Later he finally gets Jesus to come and heal Leah and he accepts Jesus in his heart. A very beautifully written story. I recommend 10 +

WOW!!! This is a good book

Highly recommended, this book looks to be another boring, historical story abot Jesus. In reality, it is almost like Ben Hur in the way the brief conversations with Jesus Himself make the Gospels come alive. Even if you don't like h.f., you'll love this!
