Joshua: The Odyssey of an Ordinary Man is an historical novel adapted after Jesus of Nazareth (Circa, 1-33 AD), and is the story of a thirteen-year old Jewish Boy from Galilee, who grew up to be the most talked about person who ever lived.
Many of his believers said he was the Son of Man, who lived for the sinners and the downtrodden, died on a cross, was resurrected and ascended to heaven. Historian and biblical scholar, John Dominic Crossan, one of Joshua’s critics said, “Joshua was a common criminal, condemned for a cross and his body devoured by dogs.”
Who was he this man named Joshua? Who told the truth about this remarkable individual?
There are many myths and missing pages in the bible. Joshua: the Odyssey of an Ordinary Man meticulously brings back to the secret life of Jesus, the eighteen unknown years of Jesus’ adolescent and early life as the historical Jesus is unearthed. Was Jesus married? Did Jesus father a child? Who were Jesus’ teachers? What lands did Jesus travel?
Stoning, honor killings (biblical honor killing) and many other atrocities against women in Jesus’ times are explicitly revealed. Jesus of Nazareth is the first man – the first prophet ever who fought for women’s rights. He stood amidst of a ring of men with stones in their hands and a harlot in the middle ready to be stoned. Women were subject to genital mutilations, stoning, bride burning, and Sathi and honor killings all along. These atrocities continue today more violently.
Joshua’s story is ever more pertinent at a time in our history where religious fundamentalists are on the march shouting, ‘My God is mightier than your God,’ and blowing each other up.
Narrated in the most captivating style, along with a detailed description of the many nations Jesus traveled, Joshua: The Odyssey of an Ordinary Man details Joshua’s life, his struggles and challenges in a manner never written before. A novel of epic proportions, an absolute must read.
