Another Messiah was written by Stuart Rawlings between January and March of 2005. Its setting is the real world---with all of its problems such as war, poverty, and environmental destruction. Into this world a girl is born near Jerusalem. She has withered legs and an inability to speak more than one word at a time. She is an object of pity---except that when she reaches age seven, she begins to solve our world's problems, one by one. She soon evidences the passions and healing powers of Jesus, the wisdom of Buddha, and the strength of Moses and Mohammed.
Other characters in this novel include an eccentric dwarf who has a special relationship to this girl, and representations of Kofi Annan, David Copperfield, the Dalai Lama of Tibet, Bill Gates and George W. Bush. Another Messiah takes readers on a fast-moving adventure through many parts of the world, in a style that is fun, insightful, provocative and uplifting. It should be read by anyone who cares about our planet, or who enjoys a good tale.
