Six months after Jesus's brutal crucifixion, his socially awkward brother Yakov is desperately trying to piece together the fragments of his broken life. He lives in constant fear in a world where the Romans rule with bloodstained hands. When the other disciples elect Yakov as their new leader, he agrees on one condition: that they form a secret community in Jerusalem where they can hide in plain sight among thousands of other Jews.

One day, an affluent tentmaker from Tarsus named Saul approaches the disciples with a wild tale of Jesus risen from death as the Messiah. The disciples are shocked: their beloved teacher Jesus was just a humble preacher, not a god. And he died. They know this well - they buried his bones. But despite the disciples' protests, Saul insists that only his version of Jesus as the Savior and Christ is valid.

Now Yakov and the disciples must fight to keep Jesus's true message of oneness with God from disappearing into obscurity. But how can these poor, uneducated disciples stand victorious in an arena of treachery and deception, where the rich and powerful always win?

Industry Reviews

"Wow! What a fascinating concept. A truly thought-provoking and satisfying read." -Grant Leishman, Readers' Favorite


"A fascinating and illuminating historical reconstruction that takes us vividly into the world of Jesus' first followers. The reader will come away from this easy-to-read remarkable work with a far better understanding of just what was at stake." -Barrie Wilson, PhD, Professor Emeritus, Religious Studies, York University, Toronto. Author of How Jesus Became Christian; Searching for Messiah.


"Insightful and beautifully written." -Patrick W. Andersen, Author of Second Born


"I loved the way [the disciples] were portrayed. They weren't larger than life, they weren't perfect to the point of unattainability. They were ordinary people with fears and low self confidence and wondering if they were doing the right thing." -Jeannie Langston, The Pen Is Mightier


"Interesting and fast moving. Ms Duarte has crafted a very likely account." -Patrick Carmen, NetGalley Reviewer


"A terrific read [about the] people who lived and tirelessly worked to spread Christ's message. Really well written." -Carol Keogh, Goodreads Reviewer


"Well-researched and entertaining. I'd recommend this book to anyone who finds the history of religion interesting, or if you enjoy character-driven dramatizations." -Taylor Pyles, Goodreads Reviewer
