The countdown to the year 2000 is affecting people in different ways -- some are curious, others anxious, and still others are panicking. What terrible judgment might the new millennium bring? Amid this atmosphere of uncertainty, Joshua -- a quiet, solitary carpenter -- comes again to the tiny town of Auburn, which has almost forgotten him. He reassures everyone by reminding them of the lessons he left them years earlier, and realizes that his wisdom must reach beyond this small town in order to help people throughout the world.

Review: Joshua: The Homecoming (Joshua)

User Review  - Donald Stevens - Goodreads

Again Joseph F. Girzone has nailed it. He is able to put Jesus as a modern human being. The stories are varied depending the the towns he is in. When Joshua is in New Orleans listening to the music, even though it is just a jazz trumpet, brings back the joy of life and the closeness of God. Read full review

Review: Joshua: The Homecoming (Joshua)

User Review  - Heather Lynn - Goodreads

I was disappointed in this book. It didn't give me the same feeling as Joshua. Sometimes the first book is the best. I am now reading Joshua in the Holy Land. So far I like it a little better than Homecoming, but not as much as Joshua. Read full review

About the author (1999)

Joseph F. Girzone is the author of several best-selling religious children's books. Born on May 15, 1930, in Albany, N.Y., he received a theology degree from Catholic University of America in 1955 and was ordained a priest that same year. He served for many years as a teacher, pastor, and community leader, until ill health forced him to curtail his activities. He turned to writing to help support himself. Girzone has written several books, including his most famous, Joshua. Joshua, the story of the return of Jesus Christ to Earth in the 1980's, helps to spread the loving and caring teachings of Christ in contemporary society. Girzone faced many difficulties getting Joshua published. He took a job as a computer salesman to publish the book himself, and began selling the books through direct contact and word of mouth, finally gaining the notice of the large retail book chains.
