Kings & kingdoms: The greatest story never told
by Dan Hynes
Why has this ‘story never been told’? The birth of Jesus – really? Surely everyone knows the Christmas story? Wrong!
Prince Rahim, leaves his dying father and his homeland, to pursue a family mystery that will lead him on a holy quest centuries in the making. A twisted tale of passion and prophecy. The story behind the ‘War in Heaven’. ‘Kings and Kingdoms’ will reset the Christmas story forever.
