Jesus’ Silent Years is a four-volume series of historical novels, written in modern language for modern people (not using ancient-speak).
These novels have one focus, Jesus of Nazareth. They paint contrasting stories from different points of view about Jesus.
Homecoming, volume four, takes Jesus back to Israel from Egypt in his late twenties. We walk with him, and his friends, through the desert. We witness the slow healing of one friend, Slow, who’s been fractured into many parts by childhood sexual abuse.
We see the ambivalence of Barabbas (aka Rabbus), teetering on the brink of following Jesus or giving into his desire for revenge.
