This book posits a situation where Jesus has returned to earth, and is going by the name of Joshua. He is giving the folks from Homeland Security a run for their money as he goes from mosque to temple, working to reconcile the Arabs and the Jews. The author has some interesting ideas, particularly since his plan to bring peace to the Mideast begins with people of different religions becoming friends and talking with others one on one. The language in this book, though, is too simple. I applaud the author's sincerity and believe he makes some valid points, but if I had not committed to reading this for a group reading program, I would have stopped around page fifteen.
