This gripping story of revenge and forgiveness, sickness and healing, and evil and grace traces the footsteps of Jesus - the places He walked and the people He touched.

Philo, a first-century Phoenician boy, is worried about his family. Evil hangs over their house like a cloud. And it all seems to come from his sister, Illyrica, who is possessed by a demon. Hearing about a prophet from Nazareth who has healed the sick and even raised the dead, Philo wonders if He can save his sister. But the mere mention of the prophet's name sends Illyrica into fits of rage and despair. Even if the prophet really is as powerful as people say He is, how can Philo and his little sister, Ione, take Illyrica to Him to be healed? Hopeless, Philo runs away and goes to live with his uncle in Capernaum, where he hears even more about the Jewish prophet and His miracles. Who is He? How strong is His power? Most of all, would the Jewish prophet help Philo, a Gentile?

Tackling the tricky issues
5 stars By Sharon, Jul 09 2015
This well written book from one of my favourite Christian authors for children is a valuable addition to the Christian family library. It's not everyone's cup of tea as the demonically oppressed girl in the story may be disturbing for some readers. My children happily handled the story when I read it aloud to them, but it required some extra guidance to help them through the perplexing and often misunderstood issues of demonic oppression and mental health. In my opinion this is a valuable resource to introduce children to these real life issues. The author's sensitively written, balanced approach leaves no doubts or fears with the reader as the power of Jesus Christ as Victor is clearly presented. After a journey tackling injustice, guilt, fears and revenge the author masterly leads the reader to the ultimate answer: Forgiveness, receiving Jesus and being transformed by His Spirit through faith in Him. The resolution is solid and delivers to the reader a sense of celebration in His Victory. This book may prove to be helpful to troubled children, offering solid hope in Christ. Highly Recommended.
