The Joshua Books
Seeing the good news in a new light
A great spiritual teacher walked the face of the Earth some 2000 years ago. Some called him a god, some called him a devil. His followers called him Master. His message of peace, love and tolerance struck a chord in the hearts of thousands of hungry souls. Our rapidly expanding international culture is fertile ground for a new introduction of his message. The Joshua Book series is a fresh presentation of the original message of the carpenter's son. Each book in the series presents the good news in a unique way to a distinct audience. Check out the About page for a more detailed description of each book.

What the World Needs Now
The great hope for this world can be found in the message that Joshua ben Joseph presented to the world some 2000 years ago. During times of great economic, political and social upheaval, there is a greater need for the transforming power of the good news.
The world needs a fresh, unadulterated message of this truth. The world needs the person of Joshua shining through the true believers who will not compromise with religious dogma and institutional tradition. The world needs to see Joshua in the face of those who willingly and cheerfully walk the second mile, who see every man, woman and child as their brother or sister, part of the greater family of God.
There are many alarming signs that indicate the world is heading for a crisis of epic proportions on all fronts. There is growing evidence of looming economic collapse, environmental disaster and political upheaval. The possibility emerges of another world war and the rise of a global totalitarian state. There is the chaos of religious militancy and the clash of bankrupt ideologies amid the rising incidents of civil unrest and political protest.
The abortion that appears on the horizon is the still-birth of a religion without God. A religion without morals, without a soul and without a conscience. A religion of death and defilement. A religion of self-indulgence and self-gratification. A religion that practices the oppression of the many for the exaltation of the few. A religion of the control of man by man.
God help us all if the true believers are so caught up in religious tradition and rigid ritual that they stand idle while the world teeters over the edge of a cliff.
A great idea is worth repeating and Joshua had some really great ideas. The real saving truth of what Joshua ben Joseph taught is wrapped up in the idea that God is our Father and we are his sons. This sonship in God and God’s Fatherhood to his sons ought to be the essence of all religion. We are created by a loving, caring, compassionate father who desires to bless us and make us more like him.
All we need to do is get with the program and follow the leading of the spirit of this same Creator/Father who lives within us. This means desiring to do the Father’s will above all else. The underlying hope of this book is that you will be encouraged to get with the program in a fresher and more meaningful way.
