JOSEPH F. GIRZONE retired from parish duty in 1980 and embarked on a second priestly career as a writer and speaker. In 1995 he established the Joshua Foundation, an organization dedicated to making Jesus better known throughout the world. His bestselling books include Joshua, A Portrait of Jesus, and Never Alone. He lives in Altamont, New York.
Joseph Girzone's novels about Joshua, the carpenter who transforms ordinary lives with words of peace and loving actions, have sold more than three million copies and captured the hearts of readers around the world.
The purpose of the Joshua adventure is to make Jesus real to a world that knows little about Him. Even to the world of religious people who love the scriptures or church, but know little about Jesus. Joshua Mountain is a place where people can come to develop a deeper understanding of the Jesus whom the Jewish people met two thousand years ago as he came walking down the street.
