Who is David Christensen and why do certain people want him dead? This self-effacing messiah who's only purpose in life is to help others has been referred to as saint, savior and miracle worker, and yet there are those who would have him unmercifully executed. David's rise to international acclaim is chronicled here. The relationships, the miracles, the mystery, the phenomena that arose around him are all put into perspective in this detailed account of his short life. No one doubts that David Christensen is sincere in his efforts to reach out to others. It is when he enters the world of politics that his real problems begin; a world where truth is elusive at best and dangerous when given in large doses. He quickly makes powerful enemies. Die Messiah is the story of the rise and fall of a modern-day legend; a study of fiction in which truth is paramount; the tale of a world eager and anxious to accept a new messiah yet unable to cope with the consequences.
