The main story actually revolves around two boys that are wanting to find the one true God. They do find God by their conversion through Jesus. They become part of the early church and meet Stephen. He teaches them about Jesus and shows them a very different lifestyle compared to their previous existences. This book exposes the reader to Jewish religion and culture as part of the story. That information allowed us to have a better understanding of the character conflicts.
