Real people. Real history. No halos. Set apart to God's service even before his birth, Yochanan is a brilliant young man who is being groomed to serve as High Priest of Israel. He has mastered the most difficult spiritual disciplines and possesses a keen insight into the Scriptures. God, however, has other plans for Yochanan. On the eve of his bar-mitzvah, the boy is called into the wilderness, where he embarks on a journey that will empty him, shape him, and test him to the breaking point. On this journey, Yochanan joins the ascetics of the Dead Sea community; lives among a tribe of Bedouin; endures the rigors of the desert's isolation; and comes face to face with Azazel, demon prince of the wastelands. Yochanan's biggest struggle: learning to live in harmony with his purpose, a purpose he barely understands until he encounters God in a form he never expected. The Voice is the second novel in the Immanu'El series, historical fiction told from the perspective of people who walked with Jesus along the dirt roads of Galilee two thousand years ago.
