Unearthing the True Cross
Novel Based on Likelihood of Cross Buried in Mt. Olives
While landscaping on the Mount of Olives, Dante Leon encounters a Bedouin man who insists that he discovered, while exploring a Qumran cave, a map showing where Jesus was really crucified. To prove him wrong, he digs in that spot and finds five pieces of petrified wood as well as a scroll written by Jospeh of Arimathea. A deaf and mute lost orphan girl encounters Dante, who cures her with prayer and one of the artifacts. A blind boy is similarly cured. Dante and his family run tests on these artifacts and conclude they have found the True Cross. Terrorists are out to kill Dante's daughter as well as the pope who is about to announce to the world that these wooden pieces, when put together, form the crossbeam of Christ.
Three Years With Jesus
Novel About Christ's Life on Earth
Imagine what it would be like to read the story of Jesus' life beginning with His baptism and ending with His ascension into heaven. Three Years With Jesus is the result of a careful compilation of the Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John, with fictional descriptions and dialogue added sparingly to make this an inspiring, yet entertaining, story of the last three years of Jesus' life on earth. What makes this book different is that it not only covers all four gospels, but it includes some fictional scenes as well as testimony from a Christian mystic who claims she had been visited by Jesus over the course of a few years. Three Years With Jesus reads like a novel but with description, realistic dialogue, and emotional tension which make the life of Jesus Christ come alive.
