The Young Samaritan, J. Schuyler Sprowles

The Young Samaritan is inspired by a single passage from the Gospel of Mark. This coming-of-age adventure tells of Joshua, a Samaritan boy, who fears his life is in danger and is forced to flee home. In this extraodinary journey, Joshua endures a harsh and unexpected world as heartbreaking as it is joyful. From a mysterious woman who delivers a haunting vision, a wild dog that curiously stays by his side and a reclusive uncle who hides from the world, Joshua finds uncommon love in a forsaken land. Late one night he is awakened by an unusual band of sojourners led by a man they call Rabbi. Many say he is the Messiah. Despite their efforts to eventually move on without him, Joshua refuses to be left behind. In time, the men allow this strong-willed boy to join them. Little does Joshua understand that he has embarked on a transformational journey that leads to the cross and beyond.
