Jun 29, momma. An easy, interesting, encouraging, thought provoking read. This familiar story from a young boys perspective was reminiscent of the Advent books of Amon's adventure. Looking forward to reading it with the kids. Oct 17, Angie Thompson rated it really liked it Shelves: z-cfdaudiobooks , z-cfdchildren-s , z-vganimal-safari , z-vgbit-of-age. This was an interesting retelling of the life of Jesus given mostly through the eyes of Joel, a young crippled boy. I enjoyed it for the most part, although it's obviously targeted at a younger audience.
A few minor gripes-- It was a little jarring when the story moved into narrating actual biblical events, mostly because the King James English didn't fit with the tone and style of the rest of the story. I understand why it was done this way, especially since there weren't This was an interesting retelling of the life of Jesus given mostly through the eyes of Joel, a young crippled boy.
I understand why it was done this way, especially since there weren't any other translations available at the time it was written, but it still made me feel a little detached from the story. There were a couple of incidents that I thought could have been a lot deeper, but I understand that that wasn't really the purpose of the book.
Delightful to read! This is a fictional tale written in a very real historical setting that brings to life the daily goings on for a young crippled boy who meets Jesus. It is colorful in the description of what life was like back then. I enjoyed it very much.

I recently read this book again and fell more in love with it.
It takes place around the time of Jesus' ministry. The main character is a crippled Jewish-levite boy named Joel. Bitter and wanting revenge on a Samaritan boy named Rehum who caused the event in which Joel is crippled, Joel can't wait 'till the day when he can "pay back" Rehum, for Joel, being a levite, was to have been a priest in the great temple at Jerusalem, but no one blemished in anyway can become a priest. The tide turns when I recently read this book again and fell more in love with it.
The tide turns when he finally meets the Messiah and becomes healed, both from his crippling and his inward hate towards Rehum.

Jul 12, Eyebright rated it liked it. I was not as impressed as I had hoped I would be with this book. It was a decent book, and it told the story of Christ in sweet and simple way, but for some reason it just didn't grab me. I would probably reccommend it for younger audiences.

Oh, but he was angry! I wanted him to be. But I had to keep away from the lake after that. This Rehum followed us. I had strayed away from the others a little distance, and was stooping to put the nuts in my basket, when he slipped up behind me. How he beat me! I screamed so that the other children came running back to me.
When he saw them coming, he gave me a great push that sent me rolling over a rocky bank. It was not very high, but there were sharp stones below. It was months before I could walk at all; and I can never be any better than I am now.

Just as my father was about to take me back to Jerusalem, he took a sudden fever, and died. So I was left, a poor helpless burden for my aunt to take care of. It has been six years since then.
https://titoolnabalga.tk I can never be a priest as my father intended. I can never serve in the beautiful temple with the white pillars and golden gates. I can never be like other people, but must drag along, deformed and full of pain as long as I live. And it's all his fault! Oh, you cannot know how I long for that time!
