Joshua, the Journey Home: Includes Joshua, Joshua and the Children and Joshua in the Holy Landby Joseph F. Girzone
Joseph Girzone wrote his parable in 1983 and published it himself with neither accompanying fanfare nor expectation of the extraordinary effect it would have on people around the world. With only word-of-mouth for advertising, and by virtue of its siniple message of love, Joshua became an international force of spiritual strength. after its modest beginnings, Joshua and its sequels have millions of readers around the world and continue to bring hope and peace to all who seek nourishment. When Joshua moves to a small cabin on the edge of town, the local people are at first mystified, then confused by his presence. A quiet and simple man, Joshua appears to seek nothing for himself. He supports himself solely by carpentry and woodworking, and he charges very little for his services. Yet his work is exquisite. Even more exquisite, and even more mysterious, is the extraordinary effect he has on everyone he meets. All who come in contact with him can't help but be transformed by his incredible warmth. The acceptance and love in his eyes and in each actions amazes the townspeople. Who is Joshua and just what is he up to? The answer to that question amazes them almost as much discovery of that same transforming power in each of their own hearts.

I had a hard time putting this book done. Joshua lives his life so fully and faithfully that we all could stand to emulate him. This book reaffirmed all my feelings about the heirarchy of the church and how we all need to get back to how Jesus wanted us to have faith in God.
Living in India and now in the U.S. I've always believed that religion has often been manipulated by men to serve their own ambitions and desires. I'm completely in awe and gratitude to Fr. Girzone for bringing to light the true message of Jesus and his Church; for this I am truly grateful.
