Overview

A stranger appears in Greenstone, a small mid-American town, whose presence evokes images of Jesus in first century Nazareth. Could this be another Messiah? Is this stranger worth listening to - even following? Inevitably the religious establishment struggles with his miracle working power. The stranger presents another way outside of the contemporary Christian trappings.

John is a young adult whose encounters with the stranger drive the novel's storyline. As he journals and contemplates the nature of Christ he transitions in his faith to a genuine adherent. Despite his parents' concerns, he sees Jesus more clearly in and through this new teacher than he has previously in his local church.

Convergence grapples with the concept of Christ in the 21st century. Just as he was rejected two thousand years ago, the American churches in Greenstone fall prey to similar temptations of exclusivity and spiritual hubris.
