Description
A successful TV newscaster is hurled into a parallel world exactly like ours except for one minor detail: Jesus Christ has not yet come upon the scene -- until now. An agnostic at best, the hero watches and participates in a contemporary telling of the gospel ... everything from the virgin birth in the back of a Motel 6 laundry room, to the filling out of petitions to raise Lazarus's body so he can be raised from the dead, to Jesus' eventual lynching and resurrection -- all told and seen in today's times through today's eyes. That's the set up of Eli, an explosively effective new work of fiction from the boundless imagination of Bill Myers.

By stripping away 2,000 years of history, customs, and cultures and putting the gospel in our time, Eli makes it difficult for the reader to hide or insulate himself from its truths. Jesus Christ is no longer a robe-clad, flannelboard holy man spouting poetic platitudes, but God the Son in jeans and a T-shirt, telling us where our lives are failing, coming alongside to help us live it, and laying down his life to save it. Eli enlivens the gospel for readers who have become desensitized by cliched retellings, opening their eyes again to its magnificence. Most vital of all, Eli gives readers -- believers and nonbelievers both -- a fresh, startling glimpse of Jesus as a living, breathing, here-and-now person with the power to change their lives.
