The Carpenter

Authored by D L Maynard

Real people. Real history. No halos.

Hiding his belief that God is no more than the product of wishful thinking, Yosef manages to pass himself off as a respectable member of his community until he discovers that his bride-to-be, Maryam, is pregnant. His first instinct is to divorce her, but he changes his mind after a disturbing dream shakes the foundation of his life and convinces him to claim Maryam's child as his own. A sinful man, Yosef is an unlikely choice for the most important parenting job in history; nevertheless, he rises to the challenge out of his love for Maryam and her child.

Yosef's decision ultimately leads him on a journey across first-century Palestine-and beyond his unbelief-as he fights to protect his son from a world that seems determined to destroy him.

The Carpenter is the first novel in the Immanu'El series, historical fiction told from the perspective of people who walked with Jesus along the dirt roads of Galilee two thousand years ago.
