Jesus is an ordinary bloke like the men who settled our country He lives in the Australian past, the Outback of the last century. He is a bloke like us, yet somehow different as he walks relentlessly to his death as an innocent victim. He visits shearing sheds, meets blacks at watering holes, attends tin kettlings, and droves through the mulga outback. Yet he also claims to come from God and to speak for God.
An ebook of the words & music will soon be ready too.
