Joshua and the Cityby Joseph F. Girzone
Millions of Joshua fans have made each novel in this inspirational series a national best-seller and will have their highest expectations met by this eagerly awaited parable for today. There are times when the human race falls so deeply into despair that it seems only a visit from God can bring it back from the brink of utter devastation. Many people, when they look at the dangerous problems in today's society, can see that we live in just such a time. With his characteristic warmth and sincerity, Joshua makes his eagerly awaited return to answer this fear as he confronts the needs and injustices that face the residents of a nameless city. But this is a Joshua you've never seen before, one who overcomes such endemic urban problems as poverty, racism, and AIDS one who even confronts the terrifying realities of mental illness and satanism. In a community where these seem like insurmountable problems, Joshua sows the seeds of renewal with his words of love. He reaches out to every person with transforming openness and shows the possibilities for bringing about the regeneration of the city, even bringing about undreamed-of economic revitalization. But other problems remain for the inhabitants of this world of despair, which money cannot help. It is, most importantly, to these residents that Joshua addresses his message of acceptance. This inspirational series of novels about the return of Jesus in the present day now reaches important conclusions with its fourth installment. The message of Joshua has never so closely addressed such urgent matters, and, in the end, the reader is given hopeful answers that lead in the direction of peace andunderstanding.
