Professional reviews of YESHU


Clarion Foreword Review (Excerpt)


"The author draws on his experience as a sociologist and performing storyteller to reimagine well-known tales in an entirely unique and engaging way; the one-on-one interactions between Yeshu and Daavi are compelling. The novel will appeal to fans of Judeo-Christian fiction as well as to those interested in exploring spiritual themes."


KIRKUS Review (Excerpt)


"Kleymeyer’s novel leads readers through young Daavi’s journey—both literal and metaphorical—with his neighbor Yeshu, a carpenter from Nazareth. John the Baptist, is one of the strongest figures here, with a finely drawn sense of spirituality that guides Daavi’s own religious development.


A compelling take on a famous Bible tale."
