What if Jesus was just an ordinary boy searching for enlightenment? This inspirational novel re-imagines his epic life, in particular, the eighteen years not mentioned in the Bible.
THE TRANSMIGRANT is an alternative, fictional take on the life of Jesus of Nazareth. Inspired both by ancient scriptures and relatively new findings, such as Russian traveler Nicolas Notovitch's 1894 book "The Unknown Life of Jesus Christ," THE TRANSMIGRANT explores Jesus' life during the years not mentioned in the Bible. It's a remarkable tale of self-discovery that explores the lost years of Jesus Christ, and a reflection on the lengths a man will go to be admired, accepted and, ultimately, loved.
The year is AD 8. In the backwaters of Galilee, the twelve-year-old carpenter Yeshua nourishes an impossible dream--to become a rabbi. When a Buddhist pilgrim tells him about a country called Sindh, where anyone can be a monk, Yeshua's hope rekindles. He joins a camel caravan and sets off on a thousand mile journey across the Silk Road into the unknown. Guided by the words of the Buddha and Krishna, but crippled by a stubborn reluctance to obey rules, Yeshua stumbles from temple to temple in search for a place where he may finally teach.
