I see through your characters how the Christian Jesus is directly involved in everyday matters. Prayers and proximity.
Kingsley, Pa. (PRWEB) February 03, 2017
William Hagenbuch jumpstarts the publishing scene with a present-day novel engaging the ageless conversation of how Jesus is both fully human and fully divine. “Jesus Cloned” (published by Archway Publishing) is the tender, heartwarming story of a young man’s journey to learn his identity as he inspires those around him with his truth – God is within all of his people.
Nineteen-year-old bible college student Joe O’Dell drops into a tailspin when he learns the unbelievable: he has been cloned from 2,000-year-old burial linens from a tomb that may have been Jesus Christ’s. After surviving a couple of years with a lost and dark soul, Joe learns through humankind’s universal sin that men have a universal God of grace and love.
“‘Jesus Cloned’ is no sprint with a single focus. It’s a marathon that includes many points and places for thought, reflection, and discovery. Using the technology of cloning, JC enables us use a new lens to see how God still speaks to us, still teaches us, and still reaches us with His radical message of hope and of love,” Hagenbuch shares.
Suspenseful and entertaining, this fast-paced sci-fi flavored romance encourages readers to consider how creative, surprising, prevailing, encompassing and ever-present the ever-loving God is to all, including the lost, the lonely, the bruised and the broken. “God sent us His Son so that we can know Him not as distant power but as a person—a living, breathing person. God enabled this novel to come about so that we can hear Him again.”
One reviewer with a Jewish tradition shared with Hagenbuch what people of different faiths or no faith can explore: “I see through your characters how the Christian Jesus is directly involved in everyday matters. Prayers and proximity. I didn’t know this.”
