Two billion people on Earth call themselves Christians. A foundation belief among Christians is that Jesus, the Son of God, will again appear in bodily form amongst us. If He returned in this age of consumption, technology, and self-indulgence, what would Jesus need to do to get our attention? What could he do to draw our focus away from reality TV, the internet, and another trip to the shopping mall? That is precisely Jesus s challenge in this remarkable new novel, Hollon s ninth. After months of being dismissed as another mentally ill street-preacher who is ridiculed, arrested, and ignored, Jesus robs a bank and ends up on the front page of The New York Times as the Jesus-Bandit. When you close the cover on this lean and powerful novel, one way or the other, you will not be the same.
“The Point of Fracture [is] easily Hollon’s most accomplished, probably his best, novel to date...absolutely astonishing.”
—Anniston Star, of The Point of Fracture
“Pack[s] in so much depth...a testament to the author’s ability to spin layers of meaning in deceptively simple prose.”
—Baltimore Sun, of The Wait
