In this sequel to Heaven, How I got Here, Colin S. Smith masterfully retells the gospel story from the perspective of Judas Iscariot.
Judas, who betrayed Jesus, and Peter, who denied Jesus, both hit a low point in their lives when it looked as if they were done with Jesus forever. Yet these men responded in very different ways. Judas separated from the other disciples and gave up on faith in Christ completely. Peter chose a different and a better path.
