George Ambrose, a middle-aged journalist with The London Times, a veteran of the last Judean uprising now back in London. Ambrose is a once famed and revered reporter on the way to becoming a hack, an also-ran. Suffering from the aftereffects of kidnapping, he is just going through the motions of a half-life, subconsciously looking for a way back. One day, a letter is delivered to the London office. His son from a long ago failed marriage, a junior correspondent in Judea, has gone missing. Fearing the worst, he heads back to the land of his nightmares.
What he finds is more than a son. An old friend, soon to be a new enemy. An enigmatic preacher with an astounding message. What he finds will change his life forever and set him on a collision course with the might of Rome.
Friends become enemies, the stranglehold of the religious rulers is questioned and a new order will emerge to challenge the establishment.
A modern retelling of a story that changed the world forever and, if you let it, will change yours as well.
