I have read Joshua and like it, but didn't like this one as much. Some of the ideas brought out about end times and what happens when you die I found were not Biblical as far as I have read the Bible.

The Homecoming is a continuation from the first book Joshua even though it doesn't say book two. I enjoyed this book as well as the first book...it is an easy quick read.
{From the back of the book...}
The countdown to the year 2000 affected people in differnt ways--some were curious, others anxious, and still others panicked. Amid this atmosphere of uncertainty, a quiet solitary man comes again to the tine town of Auburn. This carpenter, known as Joshua, first arrived nearly two decades earlier and transformed everyone with his words of peace and actions of love. However, in the years since he left, many of his friends died and a generation has grown up not knowing him. Now, with the new millennium on the horizon, Joshua reassures everyone by reminding them of the lessons he left them years before. He explains that God is love, not some monster waiting for people to make one false move and then punish them. But when an immense earthquake strikes just before the new year, and other "signs of the apocalypse" seem to abound, Joshua realizes that his wisdom must reach beyond this small town in order to help people throughtout the rest of the world.
