About the Author

The writing of this book was pure interest as the motivator. To seek answers to many questions that arise from biblical stories, taught by the Christian teachers. Many of those stories begged for further explainations, which always seemed to avoid a logical answer. So it has been left to others to assume answers to those questions. Religion touches the lives of almost everyone on the planet. It is as passionate as life itself. Believers defend it to the death, while others scoff at it and others muder because of it. It is big business: many became wealthy through both honest labor and scams, each selling the stuff with promises of grandeur, riches and happy joyous lives, which is not always the case. For people to become rich from spreading of 'God's words' others became poorer and I do not believe that this is what Jesus was all about. Raised in an Anglican environment I attended Sunday services, was baptised, confirmed and sang in the choir. I had joined other youth groups in other faiths all of which just raised more questions about this thing called religion and what was taught. I became a Tool and Machine Designer moving on to Manager of Manufacturing and then to Teaching High School. I am married with four children, three grand children and one great granddaughter. I have always been involved with sports and community activities, Minor hockey, Disabled Athletes Ass. Junior Squash lessons, Fundraising activities and serving on various Boards promoting Health and Fitness. Now I live in a small community surrounded by farms. At an early age I took a dislike for big cities. This is a community where air is clean, whose people are devoted to its wellbeing in the quality of services they provide. Activities in the arts, entertainment, kids programs as well as senior programs such as health and fitness clubs. This communty has always punched above itself in this regard. It is a place where community churches go ab --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

My husband wrote this book, but I'm trying to review it objectively.
It is a very well researched novel, based on history and factual events. The difference is that the author has put a completely different slant on the way things evolved and the resulting events. It initiates the reader's sense of curiosity about what might have happened, as opposed to what we have believed for years, as factual. It is a novel, so keep in mind this is the author's ideas on what might have been. I found it very enlightening.

Not Peter, the first Bishop of Rome, but Joseph of Arimathea, younger brother of Joseph and uncle to Christ. Learn the details of Jesus' missing 18 years (from the age of 12 to the age of 30), as he travelled with his uncle to Britain to oversee the vast holdings of tin and lead on ships owned by his uncle. Joseph of Arimathea, Nobilis Decurio, Minister of Mines, the Roman term for a high official in charge of metal mines. Tin and lead, mined in Cornwall, lifeblood of the Roman arms industry. All of our lives, Christians have been taught in the simple ways of the people of Galilee and Nazareth. Not so. This area was the cross roads of trade between the Mediterranean and the eastern and western provinces of Rome. Joseph of Arimathea travelled extensively between his tin and lead holdings in Cornwall and other areas of the know Roman world on ships he owned or leased which were needed for his business. Joseph of Arimathea, member of the Sanhedrin and Roman citizen and member of the Jerusalem senate, who argued for the acquittal of Jesus only to be out maneuvered by Caiphas and Annias who charged Jesus with high treason before Pontius Pilate. Cross reference and check every detail from other works and information available on the Internet and you will be astounded. Christians, learn the history of your Church! Inform yourselves.

The fiction used was so extreme it was unbelievable and contrary to what Christian's believe.
Many of the bible quotes are inaccurate,and try to make you feel Jesus was a confused person.
