What if Jesus had not come until today? Who would follow him? Who would kill him? Bill Myers, author of the best-selling Blood of Heaven trilogy, asks these questions in Eli, an intense and thought-provoking novel that strips away religious tradition to present Jesus fresh and unvarnished.When a fiery car crash hurls TV journalist Conrad Davis into another world, everything is exactly like present-day reality, except for one detail - Jesus Christ did not come 2,000 years ago, but today. Starting with angels heralding a birth in the back of a motel laundry room, the skeptical Davis watches the gospel unfold in today's society as a Messiah in t-shirt and blue jeans heals, raises people from the dead, and speaks such startling truths that he captures the heart of a nation. But the young man's actions and his criticism of the religious establishment earn him enemies as ruthless as they are powerful. With gripping immediacy, Myers weaves a story whose truth will refresh your faith.More
