Joseph Girzone is a Catholic priest turned writer. He wrote and self-published Joshua in 1983. He did not then imagine the impact it would have on the world of Christian fiction. HisJoshua stories, designed to show how Jesus might operate in a modern world if the incarnation would have happened today instead of 2000 years ago, have sold over three million copies worldwide.
Girzone retired from active priesthood in 1981. In 1995, he began the Joshua Foundation, which seeks to make Jesus better known throughout the world.
