Exclusive New Book by Mark Stibbe

"The Hero" is a fascinating new book by Mark Stibbe, only available to those who subscribe to this blog site. "The Hero" is a simple, accessible and user-friendly introduction to the twelve stages of the Hero's Journey, one of the most powerful and even archetypal story structures. Mark describes each of these stages using examples from modern movies. Then he relates each to aspects of the life and character of the historical Jesus, showing how the Crucified Carpenter from Nazareth is the Ultimate Hero; not only does he embody in a classic way all the twelve stages; he does so in history, not in fiction, film or legend. As C.S. Lewis discovered, the story of Jesus is "myth become fact."
