My third novella this month to be given the audiobook treatment – it’s Jesus & The Eightfold Path!
Three Wise Men came from the East for the infant Jesus in The New Testament. Three brave companions accompany the Buddha in the Chinese classic A Journey to the West. Could they have been the same three? Guided by a star, three strange companions arrive in the barbarous land of Judea to seek a newborn child – a possible messiah to some, and the reincarnation of the Budda to others.
When the child’s life is threatened, his family and new guardians escape to Egypt, returning years later, to a Jewish land on the cusp of annihilation by the Roman Empire. Once a general in the Judean army, now a Roman agent, Josephus Flavius is sent by Caesar back to his homeland to observe and report on the actions of the troubling young man now preaching sedition in the Galilee – a boy with the unsettling powers of kung-fu….
Their lives would collide in a cataclysmic confrontation between Romans and Jews, between empire and rebels – and change the world forever….
