A baby is born to an unwed mother in a barn. The child grows up in an obscure mountain village until he emerges a man with a revolutionary message. His out-of-the-box thinking and nonconformist charisma infuriate the guardians of the status quo who determine to destroy him along with his dangerous ideas. Love and hate, life and death stand their ground in the ultimate face-off. But who will have the last word? Fascinating characters and fast-moving action, laced with humor, trace the thread of the original Bible story, allowing the narrative to live afresh today.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
My first reason for joining Audible was that it was the only audible source to carry this book. (I often get CD's from the library.)

Yes. This is perfect for the Season - even for jaded listeners who need a touch of hope and "Christmas spirit."
