Son of the Father is a creative storytelling of Barabbas, the man released in the hours leading up to Jesus’ crucifixion.
Long before his life is traded for Jesus’, Barabbas’ family is ruined, a consequence of his own rage. Consumed with guilt he resolves to put things right, but this seems an impossible task. Huge debts, a man bent on revenge, theft and murder hang above his head.
As Barabbas struggles to atone and restore his family’s honour and to bring himself out of poverty, he meets the new religious teacher. Barabbas can’t bring himself to trust this wandering preacher even though his family follows Him, until Barabbas’ life is spared, costing more than he thought possible.
In this thought-provoking and gripping novel by debut author Andrew Stone, readers will discover a much deeper meaning as the lives of Barabbas and Jesus intertwine between the pages and weave a story of love and sacrifice.

I have always thought that Barabbas was an interesting person in the Bible. Reading this book really confirmed that. I began reading this and it played out like a "Fiction" book, but this book is NOT Fiction. This is a book that has many twists and turns, but tells the Biblical story of Barabbas. I really like how the Author, Andrew Stone, does a GREAT job of telling the story of Barabbas and his struggles with debt and destroying the family name. Barabbas has issues with Trust until he meets a very religious teacher. I think the Author does a WONDERFUL job at telling the story and this is a REALLY interesting read! GREAT BOOK!
