The Last Years of the Lord's Ministry Recounted

SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH -- The second volume of bestselling author Gerald N. Lund's latest series of historic novels is now available. The Kingdom and the Crown, vol. 2: Come Unto Me (Shadow Mountain, $26.95, book on cassettes $39.95), is the follow up novel to last year's The Kingdom and the Crown, vol. 1, Fishers of Men, which has sold more than 100,000 copies, making it the bestselling first volume of an LDS historic series ever.

In Come Unto Me, Simeon of Capernaum wrestles with how to undo the damage wrought by his reluctant conversion to a man named Jesus of Nazareth. A similar dilemma faces Miriam of Jerusalem, whose father, along with the other leaders of the powerful Sanhedrin, are determined to stamp out the growing popularity of this preacher from Nazareth.

This is the background for author Gerald N. Lund's second novel in his bestselling The Kingdom and the Crown series. Lund continues his dramatic account of Christ's ministry, as seen through the eyes of those who would follow him. From the Galilee to Jerusalem to the great city of Rome, Come Unto Me tells the story of the people whose lives are forever changed by the teachings of a simple carpenter from Nazareth. Lund masterfully blends the biblical account of the greatest story ever told with unforgettable fictional characters in this dramatic epic.

Thoroughly researched and fully documented with historical citations and a bibliography, Come Unto Me is the long-awaited follow up to last fall's Fishers of Men, a book featured in more than 200 newspapers nationwide.
