Denver Pearson, who wrote The Sandal Maker under the name of A. Michaelson, has been a reader and dedicated student of The Urantia Book since 1970.

The Sandal Maker (http://www.thesandalmaker.com/) is an attempt to gain a better understanding of the teachings of Jesus and to also know how it might have been to actually be on the scene, among the crowds, as Jesus taught his followers, preached the good news and suffered in his last hours on Earth.

The story takes place in 70AD, forty years after Jesus' crucifixion, as an elderly Jew and his daughter set out from Cana along the river Jordan trail on their way to Jerusalem which is under siege by the Romans. The old man wants to deliver notes he scribed as a young man who followed the Master and his Apostles.

As the old man and his daughter struggle to stay alive on this dangerous journey, he tells her the story in his notes, the mission and teachings of Joshua ben Joseph.

Denver Pearson was born in California but raised in New Mexico and calls Santa Fe his hometown. He received his degree in fine arts with minor studies in English, philosophy and secondary education from the University of New Mexico in Albuquerque. For many years he lived in Colorado where he was very involved with the Urantia community along the front range. As well as being an artist and author, he is also an accomplished musician and songwriter. In 1990 he recorded an album of original songs called “On the Wings of Faith” inspired by The Urantia Book. Many of these songs are now available in video form on YouTube under the heading Urantia Music. We hope you'll join us!
