In an ancient land in a time foretold by prophets, a babe was born beneath a shining star. Thirty years later, Jesus of Nazareth began teaching a message of hope, peace, and love. He claimed to be the Son of God, and his words - and his life - would change the world. Though David ben Joseph is quick to accept Jesus as the Messiah, the rest of his family is more cautious.

Normally I like books written for young adults because they usually aren't as sexually graphic. I was very disappointed this book is teaching YA to have sex with someone they are sexually attracted to w/o having any real face to face conversations...quote "Don't talk".
