No Second Coming (Paperback)
When the young and newly married rabbi Zacchaeus, living in first-century Jericho, loses both his career and his social position, he must look for a way to support his young family outside what is deemed acceptable in his community. Struggling to balance his material needs with the demands of his conscience, he finds himself entangled with a powerful and dangerous man. Just as everything appears to have settled in his favor, events beyond his control shatter the young family and leave the former rabbi wondering whether God is punishing him for the choices he has made. Then, quite unexpectedly, he meets someone who revolutionizes how he sees himself and what he believes about God.
No Second Coming is the unexpected story of the life of Zacchaeus, the chief tax collector of Jericho from the Gospel of Luke, who climbs a tree to see the man from Galilee and finds a very different Jesus than the one we've come to know.
