2012 Tuscany Prize for Catholic Fiction—Novella Winner The Book of Jotham by Arthur Powers

For 23 years the completed manuscript of The Book of Jotham sat in the author’s desk drawer—typewritten—collecting dust and time. On an early autumn day in 2012, the manuscript arrived at Tuscany Press, and we discovered this compelling and moving story.

Jotham is a mentally challenged man-child who, like the other apostles, follows Jesus as Christ carries out his ministry and experiences death by crucifixion, resurrection, and ascension. Yet the other apostles—the dedicated Mary, Peter, Thomas, and the rest—while they care for Jotham and look out for him, don’t understand why Jesus loves him so. Thomas even says, after Jesus offers a parable, “I don’t see why all the pots can’t be strong and beautiful.”Jotham may be different, but through him, we come to see Jesus and Jotham not just with our eyes, but also with our hearts.

For 23 years the completed manuscript of The Book of Jotham sat in the author’s desk drawer—typewritten—collecting dust and time. On an early autumn day in 2012, the manuscript arrived at Tuscany Press, and now the world has discovered this compelling and moving story.

Jotham is a mentally challenged man-child who, with the other apostles, follows Jesus as he carries out his earthly ministry and experiences death by crucifixion, resurrection, and ascension. Yet the other apostles—the dedicated Mary, Peter, Thomas, and the rest—while they care for Jotham and look out for him, don’t understand why Jesus loves him so.

Thomas even says, on one occasion, after Jesus offers a parable, “I don’t see why all the pots can’t be strong and beautiful.”  

Jotham may be different, but through him, we come to see Jesus -- and Jotham -- not just with our eyes, but with our hearts.

ARTHUR POWERS is himself a convert to Catholicism. After spending much time in Brazil in the Peace Corps, working with those for whom the Catholic faith is woven into life, and after meeting a woman who eventually became his wife, he came to question his very rational agnosticism. Powers was baptized into the Roman Catholic faith in 1976 as a thoughtful, aware adult of 29 years.
