About the Author
As a journalist, Chris Stepien has spent his career asking tough questions and telling intriguing stories. He’s worked as a television producer-director and writer for the American Broadcasting Company (ABC). From 1979 to 1987, while at WXYZ-TV, Detroit, he won six EMMY awards for documentaries, sports and celebrity specials, and children’s programming, as well as many other honors. Stepien left broadcasting to co-found Adventure, Inc., a successful Detroit-based video/film production company. He created award-winning communications for Fortune 500 companies like General Motors and Ford Motor Company for nearly nine years. Since 1996, Stepien has crafted marketing and advertising for global clients as writer-creative director and owner of Stepien Creative Services, Inc. A lifelong metro Detroiter and Catholic, Stepien attended parochial schools and was an altar boy. He and his wife, Ellen, have two adult sons, Alex and Mike. Chris and Ellen are Vincentians, active members of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul (SVdP). Stepien, a former SVdP conference president, is currently spiritual advisor to a group of Vincentians in Dearborn, Michigan. Their core mission is to respond to the needs of poor families in the surrounding community, visit them in their homes, and provide financial assistance, guidance, friendship, and hope. Bible studies, spiritual exercises, and praying the rosary inspired the author to write this novel about young, preteen Jesus. Stepien relied on his humble love of God and his passion for visual storytelling to help him shape this account of the boy Messiah, and His Passover pilgrimage. His experiences serving the needy and children of alcoholics were very influential, as well.

Stepien has made his characters come alive and he has developed a well-crafted and carefully researched plausible explanation for how Jesus got separated from the caravan returning home. He takes Jesus back to the Temple where the priests and bystanders are amazed.
An easy read, well done with plenty of historical and theological background blended in. Highly recommended.
The book is also very well researched. Jesus lived in a specific moment in history, we too often overlook that and attempt to place him in our time. What a great way to see Jesus and learn about the times he lived in. It's a light story that is easy to read and will bring great joy.
