“The Unlikely Messenger”: the untold story of the leper healed by Jesus. “The Unlikely Messenger” is the creation of published author, Thomas Sparks. Thomas lives with his beautiful wife in Texas. They are the proud grandparents of four gregarious little tikes. John Ortberg’s marvelous book, “If You Want to Walk on Water, You’ve Got to Get Out of the Boat” inspired his writing.

“Gather around, my family. We must pray. There are rumors abound that a great prophet has risen in Israel. By his hand, the lame walk, the blind regain their sight and the sick are healed. We must pray to the one God, the God of our fathers Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob that this prophet, Jesus of Nazareth, encounters my brother and cures him of the evil disease that he has suffered with these past eight years.” --Thomas Sparks

In the Bible, there are a lot of people who are only mentioned in passing. Their circumstances and/or names are briefly referenced, yet their stories are never told. Christians only learn of their existence and their encounters with key Biblical figures.

Published by Christian Faith Publishing, Thomas Sparks’ new book shares the story of the leper who was healed by Jesus. The leper is introduced solely as an example of the miracles Jesus performed. “The Unlikely Messenger” tells the story of the leper to weave together the lives of other little-known characters found within the pages of the Bible. It is a fictional account of the violent and politically divisive times Jesus lived in.
