Charlotte, NC -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/05/2016 -- Bare Bones: The Unabridged Life of Yeshua son of Joseph from Galilee is a first-person account of the first forty years of Jesus' (Yeshua's) life, that reads like a riveting adventure novel.
Kaarin Alisa delivers a long, lavishly detailed narrative that recounts the experiences of the first-century figure known to Christianity as Jesus of Nazareth. Many of the familiar outlines of his history are in place: a small community of Nazoreans living on the Judean fringes of the Roman Empire, born of the House of David, his father is Joseph and his mother is Mary, a public ministry inaugurated by John the Baptist and carried out before huge crowds, and an eventual confrontation with the Romans.
To this well-known account, Alisa adds a wealth of intriguing twists and turns. Jesus is a mystic virtually from birth, attuned to senses other boys don't have, and guarded and counseled by energy beings only he can see. At puberty, he leaves the Essene community of his parents and travels to a monastery in India, and from there to an extremely exclusive retreat called the Temple of Man.
Only news of his father's illness and impending death prompts him to return to Judea, bringing with him an array of mystical abilities and, in a striking twist, an addiction to opium that plagues him and prompts him to seek treatment from a local female healer. This captivating Jesus falls in love with Mary Magdalene and marries her, and eventually embraces his true calling.
His undertakings will be recognizable to readers, a mission of preaching and moral guidance, and miracles that take on some fascinating new dimensions in light of the mystical training that he has received. All this ends in seeming tragedy and survival beyond death.
"A superb ear for dialogue and a sense of pacing that's sure-footed ... A magical, passionate version of the life of Jesus, unlike anything taught in Sunday school." —Kirkus Reviews
