Joseph Girzone wrote his parable in 1983 and published it himself with neither accompanying fanfare nor expectation of the extraordinary effect it would have on people around the world. With only word-of-mouth for advertising, and by virtue of its siniple message of love, Joshua became an international force of spiritual strength. after its modest beginnings, Joshua and its sequels have millions of readers around the world and continue to bring hope and peace to all who seek nourishment. When Joshua moves to a small cabin on the edge of town, the local people are at first mystified, then confused by his presence. A quiet and simple man, Joshua appears to seek nothing for himself. He supports himself solely by carpentry and woodworking, and he charges very little for his services. Yet his work is exquisite. Even more exquisite, and even more mysterious, is the extraordinary effect he has on everyone he meets. All who come in contact with him can't help but be transformed by his incredible warmth. The acceptance and love in his eyes and in each actions amazes the townspeople. Who is Joshua and just what is he up to? The answer to that question amazes them almost as much discovery of that same transforming power in each of their own hearts.… (mer)

My sister handed Joshua to me while she was cleaning out her book collection. It seemed to be an easy read so I took it home with me. Getting to know Joshua was nice and I enjoyed the simple reading and easy life that Joshua chose. But it became pretty clear early that this book would have some similarities to a story we read about in the Gospels. I couldn’t help but get a little anxious anticipating a disappointing ending. There were some difficult messages in the book, some I couldn’t agree with, some I was saddened to agree with. I tried to keep an open mind and realized that my emotional reactions paralleled some of the characters in the book and I realized that is a great gift for a writer.

I believe that Joseph was called to write this book after experiencing and seeing the dark side of religion. The side that many of us have experienced in various ways. I felt a little hopeless while reading this but realized the heart of the message is for each of us to choose how we treat one another. It is a reminder of a beautiful life and a model for us all. I remember traveling to Greece and one one of the little Islands we were taken to the storage place for the history of the Greek Orthodox churches on the island. This tiny building was jam packed with picture, statues, confessionals, candles, more pictures, more statues, more artistic history. I sat on the floor to rest while the island guide told us about the history of all these icons. A friend took a picture of me and shared it with me later. She said I looked exhausted with a far away look in my eyes. The truth is that I was sad and what I was thinking was this is not what Jesus had in mind. I think Joseph has had some similar feelings through his life as a Catholic Priest.

Take the time to read Joshua and consider it an opportunity to strengthen your friendships with those in the bible. Be careful to remember the heart of the message when Joseph aptly describes some of the religious leaders we know today but gives us a reminder of the how we may choose to live our lives in a more loving way, what he believes Jesus intended for us.

When Joshua moves to a small cabin on the edge of town, the local people are at first mystified, then confused by his presence. A quiet and simple man, Joshua appears to seek nothing for himself. He supports himself solely by carpentry and woodworking, and he charges very little for his services. Yet his work is exquisite. Even more exquisite, and even more mysterious, is the extraordinary effect he has on everyone he meets. All who come in contact with him can't help but be transformed by his incredible warmth. The acceptance and love in his eyes and in each actions amazes the townspeople. Who is Joshua and just what is he up to? The answer to that question amazes them almost as much discovery of that same transforming power in each of their own hearts.

Joshua is written by a priest who is obviously unhappy with the direction of the Catholic Church, as well as many other authoritarian churches. His character represents what would be Jesus coming back to modern times and decrying how "the church" and "religion" are not what was originally preached in the Gospels. His simple lifestyle brings peace and joy to many, along with a few miracles, but he is forced to answer to the Pope. ( )
