My name will mean nothing to you, but my story is a retelling of the greatest story ever told and should mean everything to everyone.
If you interpret my words as fiction and fiction only, you will miss out on truths that are both historical and spiritual. Search the scriptures. There you will find evidence of my existence recorded in ancient sacred writ, overlooked for millennia. My story comes forth now because now is the promised day when satanic doubt spreads like black ink, threatening to blot out His very name, to reduce Him to nothing more than a teacher, to erase the eternal truths He taught and lived. That cannot happen. Jesus was who He said He was. I know because I was there in the shadows of His holy footsteps. His miracles were real. I know because I am one of those miracles. — Almon
This story of the Savior's life is told through the eye's of Almon, a mute servant living in the home of Joseph and Mary. One of Almon's main jobs is to watch over and protect Jesus. Almon takes this charge seriously and is with Jesus from 2 years old through His Resurrection. Scriptural accounts of Christ's ministry are woven into the story with insight and feeling, helping the reader to feel they are present in history.
I loved the way this book was written at a different angle than you would expect. I have passed it around to other friends who also have enjoyed it. It is great reading.
