Press Release (ePRNews.com) - CALABASH, N.C. - Dec 26, 2018 - Michael Joyce, a retired grade school teacher, school principal, college administrator, and college professor; and a writer of poetry and prose, has completed his new book, “Yada”: a resounding opus on the knowledge of Jesus’s life and mission, told in the viewpoint of a human being coming to terms with the Messiah’s significance.
Michael shares, “This novel is an apocryphal or speculative account of Jesus coming to know God’s place for him in the world.
“The protagonist sits alone outside the cave where he has retired to pray, fast, and cajole God for an answer to the question ‘What is God’s will for me?’ During the cold desert night, he reflects on the first thirty years of his life to see if clues to answer this question might lie hidden. The narrator chronicles events, thoughts, doubts, fears, and questions that have led Jesus to this point in his life. Since many of these experiences and concerns are common to mankind, the reader, like Jesus, is led to the conclusion that trust in the divine inner voice, which is planted individually in all men and women, provides both the spiritual peace and the fortitude necessary to do what our Higher Power’s will for us is in the world.
The title Yada (Ya Ďah) comes from the Hebrew word meaning ‘a desire to know.’ ‘Yada’ is where it all starts.”
Published by Covenant Books of Murrells Inlet, South Carolina, Michael Joyce’s new book aims to inspire believers with the wisdom of God’s unconditional love for all, reflected through his begotten son’s arrival into the mortal world.
This book tackles the profoundness of Jesus Christ’s persona, his ministry, and his impact throughout time and space to people seeking a personal perspective of the Lord’s will in their lives.
Readers can purchase “Yada” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, or Barnes and Noble.
