Item description for Forever Changed: A Journey in Jericho (Journeys) by Mac McConnell...

Overview
Just why would a nice Jewish boy grow up to be a despised tax collector in first century Jericho? Then you must ask yourself, why would Zacchaeus go out on a limb to see the latest in a long line of wouldbe Messiahs? Its easy to forget that personalities of ancient times had real lives. Joys, disappointments, growing pains, short comings, maybe just a bad day. There is so much more to see when one digs beneath the obvious and finds, the world has changed in two thousand years, but life is much the same.Zacchaeus did have a life, but a life a life full of surprise he could have lived without. He was six when his dad announced, Zacchaeus, your mother is dead. A short boy, picked on by his peers, now motherless and without a refuge. Until he becomes enchanted with his religion. A new sanctuary. He considers a rabbinical career but happens on his mentor with one of the many town harlots. His dreams are shattered, his hopes vanish and his faith, well that too has disappeared. He joins his father in the tax collecting business, becomes set for life and the big man in town. When his father dies, Zacchaeus inherits the worst of tax routes. A blind man, a woman with an issue of blood, a demoniac and a widow about to bury her only son. They dont have his tax money and beg off for thirty days. Zacchaeus is in trouble. His collections are due. He returns to his route, but now Yeshua has passed by. Zac is amazed. They have his taxes and their lives are changed. He rushes to town to see this Yeshua, but the crowds are two big. He cant get to Yeshua. He cant even see him. I know what Ill do. Ill run to the center of town and wait for Yeshua to pass by. He did. Yeshua did not pass by. He stopped right under Zacchaeus. Come down, Im coming to your house today. A holy man in a sinners house. Zac throws a party and invites the whole town. He knows something has changed and that something is him.

Reviews - What do customers think about Forever Changed?

One Man's Road to LIFE  Mar 25, 2007
Mr. McConnell has expanded an already vivid character and introduced the reader to intimate details of culture and history. His story brings Zacchaeus to life!
 
I was immediately intrigued....  Mar 7, 2007
As a student of the Bible myself, I was immediately intrigued by this wonderful book. It is a very easy read with a unique writing style and a HUGE message. I can hardly wait for the rest of the series!
 
Mac McConnell is The next Chuck Swindoll  Nov 25, 2006
This is a must read! If you love Swindoll and the word pictures that he uses in his writing you will LOVE this book. It is pratical, applicable and a very easy read. Great for devotional gifts to friends.
 
ENLIGHTENING  Nov 2, 2006
I thoroughly enjoyed your book... definitely food for thought in many ways, As you know I am very involved with abused children, I am also trying to "mentor" if that is the word a 23 year old young man in prison, Your book sheds another light on life.
 
Suprises and Delights in Jericho  Nov 2, 2006
This book transposes the reader to another time. Easy reading yet rich and moving. Taste the honey, sense the harlot and hear the message of hope. A stangely delightful combination. You will think about it long after you turn the last page. I will give it as a gift to the men in my family, but the ladies will want to read it too!
