What if Jesus was just an ordinary boy seeking enlightenment? Read the mesmerizing novel that others have called “life-changing” and “divinely inspired.”

8 AD, at the Temple of Jerusalem. Charismatic young Yeshua thrills his audience when God seems to communicate through him. While his listeners gush, not everyone is impressed. The priests scoff and say that no carpenter, however wise, can ever enter their holy ranks. Humiliated and robbed of his only dream, Yeshua resigns to a drab life as a laborer and even agrees to marry the wealthy maiden his father has chosen for him.

One day, when a Buddhist pilgrim invites Yeshua along to the magical country Sindh, where anyone can become a monk, an irresistible portal of hope opens.

Torn between duty and following his bliss, Yeshua must choose between keeping his promise to his father or selfishly chasing his dream and bringing everlasting shame upon his family.

Riveting, enlightening, and deeply moving, The Transmigrant is a brilliantly vivid story about Jesus’s lost years that will fascinate you and stay with you forever.

If you enjoy spiritual, thought-provoking fiction like The Celestine Prophecy or The Alchemist, and have ever wondered if Jesus did travel in India, you will relish this intriguing page-turner.

State of Mind

FROM FIVE STAR REVIEW: This is the brand new (just published 1/21/15) novel by my favorite author of medical mysteries/drama. Lawrence W. Gold. MD now author extraordinaire will keep you captivated with the story lines in all his novels. I have read every one of his novels so far. You don’t have to worry about reading this series in order–they are all stand alone. Dr. Gold, with his vast knowledge of the medical profession writes about timely topics within a fictional setting. State of Mind is about research and the ethical problems that can arise–especially when dealing with psychiatric problems. Dr. Kimberly Powell, a Ph.D. in neuropsychology, works in a research lab trying to understand the roots of violence by stimulating the brains of aggressive rats to reduce their savagery. Her successes lead to phase I safety trials in volunteers and prisoners, and then to phase II and III studies in patients. Soon it becomes clear that Kim’s brain stimulating techniques, besides controlling aggression, offer the potential to cure a number of medical problems including Parkinson’s disease, depression, PTSD, and many others. When the court instructs her to treat a psychopathic killer, she’s appalled. What would such a killer, if cured, still owe to his victims and to society? The ethical implications of the research and especially its application on humans are substantial, but so, too, is her altruistic desire to help. Where is the balance and how far and how fast should these trials proceed-and, at what cost?
