Welles is a preacher’s kid who grew up steeped in American conservative Christianity with all its religious trappings. Welles entered a scientific profession but has never forgot those root ideals of seeking truth & serving man. Following extensive Bible study, readings of Dead Sea Scroll translations, discussions with pastors, and travels to Israel Welles formed ideas of Yeshua & early Christian experiences that are unorthodox but more consistent with the humanity not only of Yeshua himself but also his followers. Welles invites you to read his fictional writings with an open mind and softened heart.

The church I attended focused more on the humanity of Yeshua with the notion that his sacrifice could not mean as much if he were wholly divine. So I concluded that he could not look into the future clearly at that time. Some event must have triggered his decision to leave Nazareth.

And later, while traveling in Israel, I learned that Nazarethis a 3 day walk from where John was likely baptizing on the Jordan River. I visited Nazareth, the plain of Jezreel, Bet Shean, and the Jordan and learned the topography of the regions through which he traveled.

And, over the years, a fictional story of his experiences on that 3 day journey through the heart of Judea & Samaria blossomed in my mind & heart.(less)

"A primer on what agape love looks like in various world religions. What could be a esoteric rabbit-hole of a subject is presented in a clear and logical manner. A surprisingly easy and worthwhile read."
