Bob Hostetler

Author Bob Hostetlerabout this book: Many people crossed paths with Jesus whose names were not recorded, whose stories were never told. The 93 short poems of Jordan River Anthology (available only as an ebook) is a tribute to them.

Some are mentioned in the Bible, such as the master of the wedding banquet at Cana or Peter's mother-in-law. Some are implied by the words of Jesus himself, such as the prodigal. Others, while never mentioned, may be inferred, such as the census taker in Bethlehem. Still others, such as the childhood girlfriend and her father, are products of imagination...and possibility.

Jordan River Anthology, in the tradition of Edgar Lee Masters's classic, Spoon River Anthology, is a collection of brief poetic monologues which present varying, sometimes conflicting, views of Jesus as seen through the eyes of his contemporaries. They may surprise you. They may move you or make you smile. But they may also help you see Jesus and his contemporaries in new and meaningful ways.
