Most people laugh when they hear of Enoch's dream of returning to Jerusalem to find the infant Messiah. Even Enoch's future father-in-law mocks him when he asks for a postponement of his long-awaited wedding to his beloved Rebekah.
A few take Enoch seriously - the shipbuilder Omnihah, Enoch's teacher David, and the prophet Nephi.
Five years before, a Lamanite named Samuel had stood on the wall of Zarahemla and prophesied that "five years more cometh" and the Christ would be born in Jerusalem.
Time is running out! Enoch knows he must set sail across the great waters in search of his dream- to see the face of the Messiah.
The Star Prophecy is a surprising story of courage and love, faith and fortitude.
Sail with Enoch and his friends across the sea through hardship and adventure in search of the Christ child.
I like the idea of looking at Christ's birth from different perspectives and seeing the reactions for good and ill of those we read about in the New Testament. But what might the people in the Americas been thinking as the time drew nearer? Surely there were some with such great faith that they wanted to witness the birth of the Christ Child themselves. Enter Joan's fictional story of Enoch. While I am not generally a huge fan of scripture fiction, Joan is a great writer and storyteller. This one will pull you right into Enoch's journey.
