My colleague and I inadvertently planted an everlasting seed of doubt in more than half the world's population. How? I am Professor Homer Paulus, the head of the DNA lab at the University of California, Berkeley. We had a bizarre adventure that began a few months ago. This book is based on a very interesting hypothesis about the missing 18 years of Jesus's life, from the age of 12 to 30. Did he spend it all in Nazareth, or did he travel to India and Tibet? The facts of biblical history are intertwined with a good fiction story. It's a mystery wrapped in an enigma and presenting a moral dilemma. Imagine the consequences of finding the DNA of Jesus! It could affect the entire world. Experience the moral dilemma before testing that DNA. Learn the consequences of attempts made to clone Jesus. Will the publicity produce impostors? The author traveled the world for ten years seeking where Jesus visited during his eighteen missing years. This book gives you a timely conversational topic, and some readers believe it will become a movie.
Edward Morris spent many months living in India and the Himalayan Mountains, the locale for most of Jesus' missing eighteen years. He is a retired civil trial lawyer. With his wife, Betty, their five young children sailed for four months alone in their 45-foot whaling trawler, exploring uninhabited islands. He is the Past International President of the International Brotherhood of Magicians, and has performed on stages in Hollywood and throughout the world, including remote villages and monasteries in Asia. Ed owns part of a South Pacific island, where he and his wife live for four months each year without TV, radio, phone, or computer. It was there in that secluded tranquility he completed this book. Their main home is on famous Nob Hill in San Francisco. A former Regent of the University of California, Ed is also a former chairman of the Advisory Board of the Lawrence Hall of Science; past president of the Weather Modification Association, which involves making rain and snow; and former president of the Alumni Association of the University of California, including Berkeley and UCLA. He has appeared on hundreds of radio and television programs, and testified before U.S. Congressional hearings.
