by Joseph Loconte
Never before had they known such hope.
In a world drenched in violence and oppression, here was a man armed with a message of peace and freedom. Into lives nearly overwhelmed by grief and sorrow, he brought compassion and healing and the deepest joy. To people who felt like outcasts and aliens, he showed the way home. And then, in one devastating night, all their hopes collapsed.
This is where our story begins ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ__ÌÎÌ_Ì´åÇÌÎå«Ì´å in the valley of despair. It is a tale of two friends, a stranger ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ__ÌÎÌ_Ì´åÇÌÎå«Ì´å and a search for truth in a world gone mad with doubt.
Historian Joseph Loconte unlocks the meaning of their exchange, set in the chaotic days following the execution of Jesus of Nazareth. Drawing from literature, film, philosophy, history and politics, Loconte shows how this biblical drama is an integral part of our own story. Sooner or later, we will find ourselves among the searchers.
