kristi saare duarte ambitiously conjures the undocumented years of jesus’ life, before he became a historically transformative figure. the author’s knowledge of the period is remarkably astute, and she artfully concocts a less self-possessed jesus, still grasping for a sense of his life’s mission. she also delves into his youthful worldly longings, and the romantic experiences he has before his ministry, realistically fleshing out the possible details of his mortal life. saare duarte masterly traces the evolution of jesus’ thought, and the grand synthesis of religious traditions it culminates in: “i aim to remind my brother and sisters to love god and one another. because it’s what’s in your heart that makes you righteous or impure.”
a captivating and powerfully related account of jesus’ early years.
the transmigrant is brilliant in its simplicity of style, an inspired narrative and vibrant living tapestry that humanizes jesus in a sensitive and delicate way, the likes of which we have not seen in religious literature since hermann hesse's tale of the buddha, siddhartha, or kahlil gibrann's the prophet. well-researched and backed up with an insightful closing note from the author, this exquisite book, like the long lost scrolls of russian explorer nicolas notovitch, places "yeshua" in india during the eighteen "missing years," offering a detailed alternative history for the open-minded reader.

kristi saare duarte's vivid narrative deploys the methods of fiction to get at a truth about jesus that history too often ignores. by de-centering the geography of jesus' development, The Transmigrant uncovers the emotional substratum of religious genius.
