Should you buy it?

If you can read the first chapter (barely eight pages) and not be completely enthralled, quickly put it back on the shelf and choose something else. Daring, compelling, and full of unexpected twists and turns. Fiction? I can't be sure...

Just Horrible

Even though this is just a fiction, it is still a terrible way of writing, talking and thinking about Jesus and Mary Magdalane, very much disrespecting of the Christian faiths Son of God. I was insulted as a woman and a Christian. Deepak acts like a teenage boy and involves sex and lust in this book, a book he named Jesus. Just horrible. He should read the Bible first before he writes about its people. Just horrible.

    Couldn't finish it

    It's such a ludicrous theory that I haven't had the patience yet to finish it. I'll probably do it, but wow. Jesus teaming up with Judas as part of a terrorist group...ugh. It's intriguing and certainly original, but I expected some soul-stirring stuff by now...

    Chopra's Jesus sadly disappointing

    I have been a fan of Deepak from his earliest work. I am not a Christian so the accuracy of the story is of no interest to me. I simply found the story to be mostly boring and very un-inspired compared to his earlier works. This is the only book he has written that I would rather have not spent my time reading. His other works would be more useful and entertaining to most readers.
