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 non-conformist 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.
