Publisher's Summary

Millions of readers around the world have followed the story of the gentle wood-carver and carpenter who was first introduced in 1983 in Joseph Girzone’s beloved parable, Joshua. In Joshua's Family, Girzone travels back in time, painting a captivating portrait of the mother and father who nurtured Joshua, and of the friends and neighbors who viewed the unusually precocious child with an uneasy balance of wonder and skepticism.

Joshua’s extraordinary nature and mysterious gifts come to light even as he participates in the ordinary routines of small-town life: his gentleness and loving spirit imbue his interactions with his contemporaries and adults alike. As he grows from child to adolescent, Joshua gradually awakens to the knowledge that he has been placed on earth for a special reason. Leaving the comforts of family and a familiar world, he moves to the outskirts of a distant town, where he will begin to teach others how the power of love, tolerance, and understanding can heal the divisions in the human family and bring everlasting peace to the world.

This is the book so many have been waiting for, and its powerful message of love and understanding is a much-needed antidote to the difficulties in today's world.

    "A simple yet wonderful story"

    Such a sweet book about a young boy as he learns how special he truly is to His Father and to the rest of the world. It is written in a simple way to make it a book that can be read by the young as well as the adult. If you have read any of the author's Joshua series you will appreciate this story and how sweet Joshua learns of his gifts.
