Summary
"Years after the crucifixion of Jesus Christ, a frail, blind old man lives in forced exile on the desolate island of Patmos with a small group of his disciples. He is John the Apostle, waiting in banishment for Christ's return." "In isolation and exile, fissures begin to form among the disciples. As even John starts to question his own faith, Matthias disavows Christ's divinity once and for all and breaks away from the community, threatening to change the course of Christianity forever. An ambitious and provocative novel, John looks at faith and how it lives and dies in the hearts of men."--BOOK JACKET
Summary
A tale based on John the Apostle's final years places the elderly, blind John in exile on the island of Patmos, until the Roman emperor lifts the ban against Christianity, enabling John's return to the religiously torn region of Ephesus
