From the Inside Flap: Stripped of his vast riches and royal patronage, Jonah ben Jonathan--the "rich young man" of the Gospels who declined to follow Jesus--is desperate.  But his desperation is not of the usual sort.  Far from hopeless, he is instead fired with a single ambition--to instruct his children while he is still able.  Working against time and a deadly sickness, he surveys his life: the secret meetings with the Greek physician Apollos and his patrician blue-eyed daughter, the decisive impact upon him of a country preacher from Nazareth named Jesus, and his illicit love for his cousin's wife, Mary Magdalen--and its tragic aftermath.  To Jonah, these events and the span of his life lead to but one question: How can a loving, omnipotent God coexist with evil?  Why do the innocent, and the upright, and the children suffer?  Will he leave his children no solution to this most terrible of riddles?  Finally, near death, he discovers the missing piece to the puzzle, and a few nights later, the "rich man," this "man of destiny," mounted on a miserable donkey, rides alone into the dark--and through the eye of the needle.

Jonah's revelation will surprise Jews and Christians alike, and it is as relevant for us today as it was for Jonah in the first century.
