We sometimes wonder what God’s plan is for our short time on Earth. In this story, three people resurrected by the Son of God – Lazarus of Bethany, the daughter of Jarius, and the son of the widow from Nain – are stunned when the apostle Paul reveals that they are now immortal.
Together, they travel across the centuries, collecting and preserving the words of Jesus Christ.
But it soon becomes clear that they must also become warriors for Christ as they elude a persistent group of zealots who are determined to permanently return them to the grave.
While the author uses bits of biblical history as a clever template for his premise, the book can be enjoyed but those of any faith … or none at all. The fictional resurrection of Lazarus provides a convenient vehicle to evaluate the evolving history of mankind over the past 2000 years, and Davison’s novel is witty, thought-provoking, and relevant.
