What if Jesus was just an ordinary boy searching for enlightenment?
In 8 AD, at the Temple of Jerusalem, the charismatic young Yeshua thrills his audience when God seems to communicate through him. While his listeners gush, not everyone is impressed. The priests scoff and say that no carpenter, however wise, can ever enter their holy ranks. Humiliated and robbed of his only dream, Yeshua resigns to a drab life as a laborer and even agrees to marry the wealthy maiden his father has chosen for him.
One day, a Buddhist pilgrim tells Yeshua about a magical country called Sindh in the Far East, where anyone can become a monk, and an irresistible portal of hope opens. Torn between duty and following his bliss, Yeshua must now choose between honoring his parents or selfishly chasing his dream and bringing everlasting shame upon his family.
Beautifully written, inspiring, and reminiscent of The Prophet, Siddhartha, and The Last Temptation of Christ. If you love thought-provoking fiction and are curious about the similarities between Christianity, Buddhism, and Hinduism, you will love this spiritually uplifting novel.
