Joshua the woodcarver is finally coming home---home to the Holy Land. But home is no more peaceful now than it was during that time long ago he remembers so well. Violent disputes and hateful acts still poison the very air. It falls to Joshua, retracing the steps he took two millenia ago, to lead his followers to peace in this world as well as in the next. Can he succeed against such tremendous odds? Full of resonances from the Gospels, Girzone's newest novel ends with a surprising and uplifting conclusion. 224 pages, softcover from Macmillan.
