A penetrating mini-musical exploring the Christian concepts of life and death ingeniously written as a contemporary retelling of the life of Christ. The script has humor and searing dramatic impact, and is extremely easy to produce. The figure representing Christ is portrayed with reverence and uses, with few exceptions, only the words of Scripture. Those who move in and around His life and ministry are depicted in broad, satirical form. This compelling, deeply moving theatre-piece for the church has received enthusiastic praise and has toured throughout the Midwest, been televised and acclaimed as one of the most powerful chancel dramas for youth today.
