Product Description

When Joshua moves to a small cabin on the edge of town, the local people are at first mystified, then confused by his presence. Who is this simple woodworker? While he quietly urges all around him to break down the walls that separate them, there are others who are frightened of him. Finally, some church leaders confront him. . . Girzone's parable is moving and unforgettable. 271 pages, paper from Macmillan.

Publisher's Description

Rooted in a scrupulously accurate reading of scripture, Joshua is a profoundly moving, deeply inspiring book that no reader will ever forget.

Sometimes it happens. After two thousand years, the human race may be given a second 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 cherry 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 in the community, some remain suspicious. Finally, in an effort to address the community’s doubts, Joshua is confronted by the local church leaders.

    Discovered the book after the movie
    May 29, 2012
    Thomas Antis
    Quality: 4
    Meets Expectations: 5
    Most people admit that movies based on books hardly ever live up to the printed version. I liked the movie and wanted to read the book afterwards. Found it on a friend's bookshelf and borrowed it. It was uplifting and enjoyable in much the same way as the movie, although there were differences. It is a perfect summer read.

    I've heard criticism about the theology behind the book, but feel like if that is your big thing, stick to commentaries rather than fictional stories. This was enjoyable, and above anything made me think about what Jesus' real, man-on-the-street personality must have been like. If your journey of faith has become simply a series of rules to follow instead of relationships to build, this book should reorient you.

    I did not realize that this was the first of a long series, and am now browsing through the other titles, wondering which to consider next. Interesting to learn that the author lives very close to me as well.

    I liked this, and found no threats or offense to my faith here, for those who worry about such things, and would recommend it to friends.
