This was true serendipity. I added two cds to an amazon order and on one of them we heard David Olney's song, Jerusalem Tomorrow, sung by Emmylou Harris. The lyrics immediately grabbed our attention and - the same day - we bought The Stone
Something happened. Back there all those centuries ago. Something not easily believed or easily dismissed. Two thousand years of glory and horror, of love and hate, of beauty and violence have only made those long ago events more murky and more enigmatic. But nothing comes of nothing. Something happened. The Stone is an attempt to address those events. From varying points of view (a con man, a donkey, a murderer and a soldier), a story is told. A picture struggles to emerge. Nothing is proved. Nothing is denied.
