Overview

Philo, a first-century Phoenician boy, is worried about his family.Evil hangs over their house like a cloud.And it all seems to come from his sister Illyrica, who is possessed by a demon.Hearing about a prophet from Nazareth who has healed the sick and even raised the dead, Philo wonders if He can save his sister.But the mere mention of the prophet's name sends Illyrica into fits of rage and despair.Even if the prophet really is as powerful as people say He is, how can Philo and his little sister, Ione, take Illyrica to Him to be healed? Hopeless, Philo runs away from home.But everywhere he goes he hears more about the Jewish prophet and His miracles.Who is He? How strong is His power? Most of all, would the Jewish prophet help Philo, a Gentile? This story of revenge and forgiveness, sickness and healing, and evil and grace traces the footsteps of Jesus of Nazareth -- to the places He walked and the people He touched.
