Jesus Rides A Bike In Novel ‘Jesus in Jeans’ by Bill Bidiaque

Meet Jay Elion; rebel born of a virgin. He rides a Ducati Diavel AMG and his twelve-man crew rides in a Mercedes Benz sprinter. He’s lived through a train wreck, four assassination attempts and he’s defied every known natural law.”

Documentary filmmaker and writer Bill Bidiaque, debuts his Christian fiction/Christian thriller novel, Jesus in Jeans, based on the life of Jesus, cast in the 21st Century. Jesus in Jeans is published as a WestBow Press title; WestBow Press is a division of Thomas Nelson Publishing and Zondervan.

Set in a fictional nation called Y’Isra – based on the Israel of old – the novel narrates the days of Jesus on earth in a contemporary context. We meet Jesus as Jay Elion. Our first encounter with him is at the sanctum, wreaking havoc on bureaux de change and electronic dealerships.

Jay Elion claims he’s been sent to save Earth from damnation, his mission beginning in Y’Isra. This pits him against the Syndicate of Religious Lawyers, the Moranê Empire, and the Y’Isran patriarchy – who all have their own interests to guard.

To fulfil his mission, Jay organizes campaigns across Y’Isra with his twelve-man crew and his growing popularity threatens the fabric of power that the three antagonists have woven. His exploits attract several assassination attempts but Jay scales through them in stride.

We journey with Jay, getting a modern perspective of the life Jesus lived; like 2,000 years ago, Jay speaks to the elements and they obey, whether he’s on a Boeing 787 Dreamliner or a sport fisher yacht.

Senior Religious Leaders In Nigeria Call For Dialogue To Build Peace

A delegation from International Dialogue Centre (KAICIID) visited Nigeria to search for opportunities to expand its involvement in peace building in the country through the use of inter-religious dialogue.

The delegation – led by KAICIID Deputy Secretary General for External Relations, Ambassador Alvaro Albacete, and Senior Adviser, Professor Mohammed Abu-Nimer, with Ambassador Yahaya Lawal and Dr. Dodik Ariyanto from the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation – met with more than 20 senior religious leaders, government officials and civil society representatives during a week-long trip to Abuja.

The trip was organized with the assistance the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) and KAICIID’s local partner, the Institute for Peace and Conflict Resolution (IPCR).

Ambassador Albacete said that KAICIID aims to work with international and civil society partners to support interreligious dialogue in Nigeria.

“We had a very promising visit to Abuja and discussed a number of areas where we think the Centre will be able to assist. We expect to make an announcement about these initiatives very soon,” he said.

Nigeria is currently battling militant group Boko Haram and faces increased tensions between Christians and Muslims, as well as along tribal lines. The country has almost equally large Christian and Muslim populations, which are also regionally demarcated. Speaking generally, Christianity is widely practised in the southern part of the country, and Islam is the majority religion in the north.

Nigeria claims successes against Boko Haram

A new multination military offensive is causing Boko Haram to surrender "en masse," a Nigerian military official claimed Sept. 13, just as humanitarian aid groups said Boko Haram attacks were creating a major hunger crisis in the region.

"The Nigerian Army in conjunction with the Nigerian Airforce and other security agencies will continue to devise and implement effective strategies to bring Boko Haram terrorism to a speedy end," the International Business Times quoted Colonel Sani Usman, Nigeria's acting director of Army Public Relations. "It will also continue to receive surrendering suspects and assures innocent ones among them that surrender is the only option open to them."

A special military force of 8,700 soldiers from Nigeria, Niger, Chad, Cameroon and Benin mobilized against Boko Haram in February, and Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari has given newly appointed military leaders just months to stop the terrorists.
