Thomas traveled further than any other apostle.Spiritual and highly informative, this historical fiction novel, based on over a decade of research, is taut and richly told. It is based on Bible scriptures, The Gospel of Thomas, and on numerous stories of Thomas related to the author when she lived and worked as a volunteer in Mylapore, Chennai, India, just up the street from where Thomas was martyred 2000 years ago.This novel tells the story of the Apostle Thomas, beginning with his family’s life in the small town of Cana in Israel.

The adventure gets under way the day before the bar mitzvah of Thomas and his twin brother. It leads the reader down a long path scattered with tragedy, betrayal, and the beautiful love of Jesus. Having traveled from Jerusalem to Parthia and then to India, Thomas spent his time and energy fanning the fires of Christianity into a powerful ministry to the far corners of the earth.

Thomas’s resounding voice and passion remains vital in India today, yet he is greatly underappreciated by the rest of the world.Now, for the first time ever, readers are allowed a vivid and moving portrait of an apostle who did so much more than doubt. Christian fiction has a strong new voice.Thomas the Apostle is also the story of the man from Srinigar, Kashmir, Northern India, who was one of the hundred or so disciples who traveled with Jesus throughout his ministry, crucifixion, and resurrection. Later this man returned to Srinigar to bring the stories of Jesus to the land of his birth.

The author has personally visited his grave site in Rosabel or Rauzabal in Srinigar in an area where most residents are followers of Islam, yet who are proud of the fact that they received the message of Jesus 2000 years ago from the man they renamed Jesus the Gatherer since he gathered together the stories of Jesus, who is revered in Islam as a great Prophet.Barbara Bode Snyder has lived in San Jose in Silicon Valley since 1959, right after she finished college, except for the years that she and her husband worked abroad, both professionally and as volunteers.

They have volunteered on all six continents where there are people. Locally they remain very active year-round volunteering with Rebuilding Together and Habitat for Humanity.Thomas the Apostle by Barbara Bode Snyder is now available in both print hard copy and electronic form.
