The Miracle Maker A Novel
Back cover copy
You've never heard the greatest story ever told from a perspective like this-the biblical account of Jesus through the eyes of Tamar (the ill young daughter of Jairus), whom Jesus raises from her deathbed.
Tamar brings alive the figure of Jesus as both healer and radical teacher, touching the hearts and minds of all who encounter him. The Miracle Maker-also a stunning 3-D animated film-will become a literary classic, at once faithful to the biblical account and a profound interpretation of it.
"Drawing upon the work of mainline, evangelical and Jewish scholars, The Miracle Maker presents Jesus as more than human and yet thoroughly human. We see his affection for people, the laughter he shares with friends and the grief which strikes him." -Thomas E. Goodhue, executive director of the Long Island Council of Churches
"The writing alone can make a boring, rational-thinking academic type like me feel all choked up reading it by the fireside." -Rev. Richard A. Burridge, dean of King's College, London
