View all copies of this ISBN edition:

In the year AD 11, a crippled baby boy named Benjamin was born to a rabbi and his wife in the town of Capernaum, a fishing village on the northwestern shore of the Sea of Galilee. This in and of itself was not noteworthy, for various forms of disability were prevalent then, as they are today. It wasn t until later in the life of Benjamin, that he would become part of recorded history, and remain with us for almost two thousand years. His miraculous moment was captured and recorded in the best and most irrefutable historical reference book ever produced about that period: the Bible. This novel takes Benjamin s true story from the Bible and imagines what the rest of his story would be. Benjamin existed in the Bible for perhaps an hour. This book gives him life, and lets him exist for the rest of his life.

From the Back Cover:

Before that day he was a weak and worthless cripple, a “sinful man” according to his father. Afterwards he was completely healed of his physical disabilities at the hands of the rabbi from Nazareth. Destined for the dungeons of society, suddenly a world without limits was open to him. This is the story of Benjamin, a man who was given a new body, a new life, and a new chance to live life the way he had always dreamed.
