Arguably the most in?uential ?gure in human history was Jesus Christ. Wars were fought in his name. In his name many nations rose, and many nations fell. Many prominent leaders gained power from him, and many others were persecuted and killed for their belief in him.
It has been said that over 6 billion Bibles have been printed in almost every language, and countless other millions of stories, books, and ?lms have told the story of his life. Yet, he died with two men by his side, and history knows almost nothing about them.
Young Dismas and his brother Jotham are blissfully unaware of the lifelong journey that awaits them soon after their encounter with the young girl, Mary, her husband, Joseph, and their baby, Jesus. Their lives will soon take a very cruel turn that leads through hurt, hardship, betrayal, and murder.
Along the way, they make unlikely alliances with Tiran and Gestas, two known criminals with a penchant for theft and murder. It is a path that will ultimately lead them all to intersect with their brutal destinies.
Throughout their journey, their lives will intersect with some of the most famous ?gures of the Bible, and they will learn about love, faith, and the most powerful weapon against sin... forgiveness.

Although it is fiction, I almost immediately found myself feeling as a part of the people in the story. The book combines actual Biblical references with fictional themes that put me on the edge of my seat for nearly the entire book. I came away with a new found understanding of Christ's forgiveness after the tumultuous lives the 2 brothers live during a relatively short period of time. The story told in this book will transcend generations.
