First century Palestine is a region glued together by hate. The Roman invaders rule, the Jewish authorities collude while the enraged and desperate plot violent revolt. 

Pilate lives with his nightmares, Herod makes guilty hay, the balance of power is delicate – and the last thing anyone needs is Yeshua, a man with a mind and heart of his own. He’s going to suggest a shocking alternative for his homeland. 

And this is his story, told through his eyes; and through those of two different women in his life, Miriam of Magdalene and Mary, his mother – different women with very different dreams.

The result is much more than an historical novel. It is an epic account of the nature of love; of Yeshua as a human being, a carpenter compelled to preach - a man whose intellectual , physical and spiritual strength lead him into conflict with family, friends and authority; and finally, with death itself.

It is not to be doubted a man called Yeshua lived and died. The more interesting question is whether he died and lived. And how he believed and loved along the way.

It is 1st century Palestine and no one needs Yeshua. It is said he arrived there like a sword.

World Madness and Nihilism go Hand-in-Hand – The madness, craziness, and turmoil we see in the world today seems to have slowly developed in line with the growth of mass communication during the twentieth century, reaching an unimagined deep crater in recent years. As Air Chief Marshal Lord Dowding (Sir Hugh Dowding, 1882 – 1970), put it in his 1960 book, "God’s Magic," “The problem of world chaos is linked very closely with the chaos in the mind of humanity.” Dowding is considered by many as the man most responsible for Great Britain’s victory in the 1940 Battle of Britain during World War II. “Man insists on looking outward for causes instead of looking inward. As with the individual, so with a nation. An individual who has an unquiet spirit will have an unquiet environment.” Read here
