Another Tale of the ChristBook - 2014
E.S. Kraay’s Gaspar, Another Tale of the Christ is the story of one man’s remarkable search for truth. Told in the words of an unwitting wise man, the narrative spans four decades from young Gaspar’s time at the Kanheri caves in India with the ancient Buddhist Vajrabodhi to his witness of Christ’s crucifixion at the behest of his friend Pontius Pilate.
In the intervening years, Gaspar translates ancient scrolls on the shores of the Dead Sea under the tutelage of the Zadokite priest Barjadek, and ten years later, he instructs at the Greek Ptolemaeum in Athens where he meets a mysterious boy from Judea. Always thirsting for knowledge and committed to his quest for truth, Gaspar embarks for the end of the world where the sun sets to find the Earth Mother. Mentored by the druid Evenor in ancient Fál, he discovers that truth is the same at both ends of the world and that a new era is about to dawn, an era foretold in ancient writings from many sources including the book from Atlantis his Keltic friends claim is written in the language of the moon. Certain that the time is now, Gaspar journeys to Rome and befriends Pontius Pilate and his wife Procula. At Pilate’s invitation, Gaspar returns to Judea where he believes he will find the Lord of Righteousness.
Steeped in history, abounding in spirituality and rich in insight, Gaspar, Another Tale of the Christ will challenge the notions you hold of people and places you think you know.
