The rabbis in the temple. The wedding guest at Cana. The mother of Judas. We know them only as nameless characters in the crowded days of Jesus' life. Some are mentioned in the Bible. The existence or presence of others, while never mentioned, may be inferred. 

Bob Hostetler's Jordan River Anthology gives voice to those people, and imagines what it might have been like to have crossed paths with Jesus of Nazareth as they did. The ninety-three poems in the collection offer fresh--sometimes arresting--perspectives on the Gospels...and on their central character.
