About the Book

Jesus awakens from the crucifixion on a strange planet, in a strange body, not knowing where--or even who--he is. The two Goldskins who find him and the Master Teacher who retrains him all wonder who he is, where has he come from? Why does he not have a number on his silver body? And what planet is this, where the population is divided by skin color with life work determined at puberty by a mysterious "Great Being"? What does the Genetic Council have to do with what goes on? Will the evil Dr. Davree's plan succeed? Is revolution the only way the citizens of the Planet of Light can escape their bondage?

In this book the reader answers these questions as he or she looks into the distant future and the distant past, and perhaps finds answers for living today.

About the Author

Ruth Truman has always looked for answers to unasked questions. In her four other books published by Abingdon Press, she has explored the "role" of the minister’s wife, the taboos of her conservative upbringing, what makes church colleges unique, and laughter that can be found in life’s hardships. Retired from a career in university administration while simultaneously being a pastor’s wife, mother of four and grandmother of five, she now turns to fiction to answer the "what if" questions in life and faith.

Her other books include: Underground Manual For Ministers’ Wives and Other Bewildered Women, How To Be a Liberated Christian, The Mission of the Church College, and Spaghetti From the Chandelier.
