—a lost tome written by Christ—Erin must again join forces with Army Sergeant Jordan Stone and the mysterious Father Rhun Korza to find and protect a boy believed to be an angel given flesh. But an enemy of terrifying power and ambition seeks the same child—not to save the world, but to destroy it.
Erin must discover the truth behind Christ's early years and His first true miracle, an act that yet remains unfulfilled and holds the only hope for the world.
