Rebecca Martin. This story is set in New Testament times, Jewish life, and the customs of that time. Eli had heard about Jesus’ profound teachings and amazing miracles, but he had never seen Jesus. The more he heard, the more he wanted to meet this man. Was Jesus the Messiah who would deliver the Jews from Rome’s oppression? Could He heal Eli’s crippled father? Would he ever see Jesus? For young adults. 210 pages; paper; Christian Light Publications.
