A fictional reconstruction of the travels of Apostle Thomas to the Malabar Coast of South India, in the year after the crucifixion of Jesus of Nazareth. The narrative uses factual history and traditions to describe Thomas journey. Authors note: This is a story about transformations: of Thomas development from mere human to a conduit for the god-force. The pivotal point in this transformation occurs when he confronts Evil and it retaliates in a particulary nasty manner.

The story explores themes of Faith and Obedience, Retribution and Atonement. And Forgiveness. KIRKUS Reviews says: The prose is voluptuous and imaginative, with sentences that twist and turn around the sights and smells of the ancient world as Thoma makes his way from Jerusalem to India... maintains a line of ancient mysticism that unifies Thomas experiences, including his encountering people of various faiths and discovering the ways early Christianity intersects...

Compelling and well-researched...
