How does Fishpond Work?

We won't be beaten by anyone. Guaranteed


JOSH is an imaginary, fictional version of the Biblical story of Jesus of Nazareth told by his mother, Mary. While the story relies upon and alludes to the Biblical narrative, it contains little of the symbolism and cultural philosophy and prophecy on which the original story is based. The questions that inspired this retelling were, "What would Jesus (aka 'Josh') be like if he were born today? What would his life be like if he were born into our world? How would our world be different if he hadn't come two-thousand years ago? How would he change this world if he was born now? The focus of this story is on the human character of The One whose simple life and radical message changed the course of history for time and eternity.

About the Author

Elizabeth Anthony was raised in a fundamentalist, evangelical Christian home. Degrees in English and Secondary Education, graduate degrees in Educational Leadership and post-graduate work in literacy and curriculum and lots and lots of reading have led Ms. Anthony to expand her philosophical views and to reevaluate the limiting dogma of her childhood. Josh offers an alternative perspective on the life and work of Jesus of Nazareth. The work is largely fictional, but by its nature is also biographic. Elizabeth hopes that reading Josh will inspire questioning minds to investigate other views of the historic and religious texts that reveal the truth about the simple man whose life and ideas changed the world forever. When Ms. Anthony is not writing or teaching, she is probably reading--or boating or hiking with her husband. Next to great literature, the outdoors and animals, dogs in particular, are her passions. "Elizabeth Ahthony" is a pen name chosen to protect the innocent and not-so-innocent described in a very revealing memoir, Teaching: A Love Story, her first book. Josh is Ms. Anthony's second book. You can contact Elizabeth through her Facebook Author Page.
