Joshua : A Parable for today
Sometimes it happens. After two thousand years, the human race may be given another chance... When Joshua moves to a small cabin on the edge of town, the local people are mystified by his presence. A quiet and simple man, Joshua appears to seek nothing for himself. He supports himself by working as a carpenter. He charges very little for his services, yet his craftsmanship is exquisite. The statue of Moses that he carves for the local synagogue prompts amazement as well as consternation. What are the townsfolk to make of this enigmatic stranger? Some people report having seen him carry a huge oak log on his shoulders effortlessly. Still others talk about the child in a poor part of town who was dreadfully ill but, after Joshua's visit, recovered completely. Despite his benevolence and selfless work to bring the community together, some remain suspicious. Finally, in an effort to resolve the community's suspicions, Joshua is confronted by the local church leaders. Joshua is a profoundly moving, deeply inspiring book that no reader will ever forget. It has been called "life-changing," "engrossing," "inspiring," and "entertaining." Rooted in a scrupulously accurate reading of scripture, Joshua has true universal appeal and is a true exercise in spirituality.
