What if Jesus had not come until today? Who would follow him? Who would kill him?

A fiery car crash hurls TV journalist Conrad Davis into another world exactly like ours except for one detail?Jesus Christ did not come 2,000 years ago, but today. Starting with angels heralding a birth in the back of a motel laundry room, the skeptical Davis watches the gospel unfold in today’s society as a Messiah in T-shirt and blue jeans heals, raises people from the dead, and speaks such startling truth that he captures the heart of a nation. But the young man’s actions and his criticism of the religious establishment earn him enemies as ruthless as they are powerful. An intense and thought-provoking novel, Eli strips away religious tradition to present Jesus fresh and unvarnished. With gripping immediacy, Bill Myers weaves a story whose truth will refresh your faith.

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Judy Knight | 2/11/2014

    " Would we recognize Jesus if he had appeared during our lifetimes? Very interesting take on the life of Jesus. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Christy | 2/2/2014

    " A beautifully moving and intriguing novel about what would happen if Jesus were to come to earth in modern times. My first and favorite Bill Myers. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Terry | 1/25/2014

    " FIVE STARS! Highly recommended! My brother suggested I read this page-turner several years ago. I did, and have never forgotten how well it was written. I recently stopped in and picked it up at a used book store, as I loaned my copy out years ago, to whom I can't remember! The Scriptural parallels are well written and even if you don't have much knowledge of the Bible, the stories are suspenseful, engaging, and believable. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amore | 1/11/2014

    " It's more than a book, it's so real. I would give this book to everyone. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kristy | 1/10/2014

    " This book really makes one think and contemplate. What would it be like if Jesus came in this era and not over 2k years ago? It may be a book of fiction, but if you were raised in Christianity, it will really give you food for thought :) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 John | 1/9/2014

    " Wow, this book was so good....So good I must rate it a "five" and go back and downgrade ALL the other "fives" in my library. Granted, this book is a fantasy/alternate reality take on "The Greatest Story Ever Told", but even so, it's just so incredibly well done. The pacing is perfect, the characters are completely believable. I would recommend this book to ALL Christians as required reading, as I think it provides a much needed, fresh perspective on Jesus Christ's sacrifice, and amazingly enough it is also quite true to the scriptures, all things considered. My hope is that non-Christians will read this book and discover the most important truth of all. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Keith | 1/6/2014

    " Absolute Fave. This is a fresh persective on the Gospel Of Jesus. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Whitaker | 12/27/2013

    " A really great book shows us how everything is great and worth to die for "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Scott | 9/5/2013

    " An excellent Christian drama. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brittany Ketter | 8/16/2013

    " This is one of my favorites! Highly recommend. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cyndee Cornell | 6/19/2013

    " great book to give you something to think about. Can't wait to read another book by Bill Myers. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Belinda-marie | 1/15/2013

    " With a new perspective, I have a greater understanding just how bold in faith the initial disciples had to step. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kammera Rice | 12/12/2012

    " Interesting to think about Jesus coming today. Instead of 2000 years ago. In jeans and a tee shirt no less! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lisa | 7/19/2012

    " This isn't a bad book, but I didn't think it was a very good book either. Good idea, but the story moved too fast and it seemed to lack details. I think adapting the Gospel to modern day is a huge endeavor and I applaud the author for trying, but I think I prefer the original. :) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mary | 6/30/2012

    " What would it be like if the Savior had not yet been born but came now...in this generation? Very interesting story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Andree Hoppe | 5/11/2012

    " Thought provoking......where would I stand? Who would I trust and believe? "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Griff | 3/19/2012

    " Amazing read. A thought provoking story that puts Jesus' arrival in modern times. A must read for any christian. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kitty | 2/6/2012

    " Thank you Bill Myers for reminding me that Jesus is my friend. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sara | 10/12/2011

    " This a great Christian book. It's the first of a trilogy and I feel it's the only one worth reading. The other two, I just couldn't get into. I have thought about the topic about Jesus before and wondering how today would be without Him and this answered it for me. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Crystal | 8/28/2011

    " Changed my entire view of Jesus and how real he is. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Thebuffywilson | 8/10/2011

    " Very thought provoking book. I found myself going back through the gospels to compare the stories of Jesus's life to what I was reading in Eli. This book places the setting of Jesus's story in modern day. I now completely "get" why Jesus was so controversial and such a threat to the establishment. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dwight Wood | 7/29/2011

    " A good tale of how Jesus would be in today's world. I really liked this book "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Meredith | 6/20/2011

    " Great book! The book really makes you think how you might view Jesus if he came during this generation. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kitty | 4/18/2011

    " Thank you Bill Myers for reminding me that Jesus is my friend. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Stefan | 2/1/2011

    " A vivid work of fiction that captures the excitement, beauty and eloquence of the Biblical Gospel. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cyndee | 12/25/2010

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Hillary | 2/27/2010

    " This book was soooo amazing. It made me want to be able to just hang out with Jesus in person like this guy does. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jennifer | 11/4/2009

    " loved it. what if jesus walked today? how would we treat him? "
