When Petros, the leader of the disciples of Joshua, began a secret journey up the Jordan River, he is not certain who he will meet along the way. He does know some of the players of his mission and where to meet them, but does not know the big picture. Then a mysterious hooded person approaches him on the sandy shores of the Dead Sea, more familiar to him than strange. Together they will face the uncertainty of a mission known only to The Shield of David.
Author Vidda Crochetta chronicles the greatest story ever told unlike any author before him. The Shield of David is five women who combine their resources and unite to protect a charismatic Galilean populist preacher to save him from himself. The man is more important to them than his mission to challenge the Roman and Jewish authorities who disregard the concerns of ordinary people and support the established elite.
