In AD 100, John the Apostle is restored to the body of his youth and sent on a mission with a warning to never reveal his true identity. Fast-forward to modern-day Seattle, where John leads a foundation dedicated to bringing clean water to third-world nations. When a new television series threatens to reveal the truth of his identity, John struggles to keep his secret, especially as he grows close to Nicole, a young woman he recruits to lead his organization.
For 2,000 years, John has wandered the Earth while hiding his identity. But now both friends and foes are on the verge of discovering who he really is - an event that will trigger the end-times. Can John divert those who would discover his secret, or will curious friends and suspicious enemies spark the apocalypse?
enough said. writers write, narrators narrate. know your gift and stick with that please. great story, awful narration
An intriguing story with a mind bending take on Christian history and future ramifications. Must say I rather liked the tale of "What if..." presented in this story. There're many enjoyable twists and turns that the author wove through out the centuries, that kept me listening and coming back for more. The ending was a bit rushed for my taste, but I still enjoyed this book well enough to keep my eye open for a sequel, and ponder the possibilities it presented for quite sometime.

Don't take the author/narrator's attempt at foreign dialects too seriously!
