The Dog Who Was There

Full Product Description

For any readers looking for a new way to see the world of the Bible, and the resurrection, comes a remarkable story from the point of view of a dog. Perfect as an Easter and Lent read, this unique novel opens up the crucifixion in a way that anyone can understand. Bringing a new voice to the Easter story, The Dog Who Was There is a refreshing idea, and seamlessly told. 

Welcome to an encounter with Jesus from a perspective you've never experienced--a homeless mongrel in first century Judea,

Barley comes into the world in a field--homeless, without protectors, apart from his mother and siblings, who are killed by a cruel farmer. Barley is the only member of his family to survive.

The world of first century Jerusalem through Barley's eyes is a place of both harshness and unexpected beauty. He finds his way to the home of a kind woodcarver and his loving wife. Adah and Duv are following a new teacher that everyone is talking about--the Teacher from Galilee--who preaches a revolutionary message of forgiveness and humility. Barley carries what he has learned through Adah and Duv's kindness back into the world with him when he is once again alone and without a master. Barley finds his way to The Camp, a barren no-mans-land on the outskirts of Jerusalem where the poor and hopeless congregate. There, he meets Samid, a good-hearted petty thief, who leads Barley to new adventures, new revelations, and to an unforgettable encounter with The Teacher Himself.
