The 13th Tribe
The Immortal Files
by Robert Liparulo


Since the time of the Ten Commandments and Israel's betrayal of God at Mt. Sinai a group of immortals has walked the earth. Taken from the twelve tribes this group of 40 were punished with immortality. They became known as Israel's 13th Tribe. Forbidden from entering the Land of Promise they are forever seeking to earn God's forgiveness and entry into Heaven, even if they have to kill every sinner that walks the planet to atone for their sins.

Jagger Baird is a broken man since an accident claimed his best friend, his arm, his memory, and his faith in God. Hoping to heal and restore his relationship with his wife and son, Jagger takes a job as head of security at an archaeological dig at Mt. Sinai.

But soon the Tribe and Jagger are locked in a battle that may cost Jagger everything he still has. When the Tribe tracks one of their own to the Monastery of St Catherine's  - Jagger, Beth and Tyler get caught in the middle. With Beth and Tyler's lives hanging in the balance Jagger must rely on the help of Owen a man whom he has just met.

But who is Owen and how does he know so much about a secretive group of immortals bent on ridding the earth of evil? Can something in Jagger's forgotten past help him save his family and stop the Tribe? Or will the Tribe achieve their objective and kill millions in a single act of retribution?

Throughout it all Beth remains firm in her faith in God. She shares her belief with members of the Tribe, but can they find the love of God and His freely offered gift of mercy to all.

The 13th Tribe is an exciting, thoughtfully written book.  It speaks to the heart of many in today's world.  Too many try to earn the gift that God offers to us freely.  Mercy is not mercy if it must be earned!
What about you? Have you opened your hand and accepted God's gift of mercy?
