Jesusby A. N. Wilson
"Extraordinarily entertaining....Learned, witty....Wilson [is] a gifted novelist and diligent biographer."NewsdayWhat are the facts about the life of Jesus, as opposed to the myths, or unprovable tenets of faith surrounding the miracles, death, and resurrection? How and when did Christianity become a separate religion from the Judaism into which Jesus was born? To what extent was his power over contemporaries political rather than religious? A. N. Wilson's answers to these questions will fascinate readers of every shade of faith or skepticism.
“Many aspects of Wilson’s book will anger or amuse believing Christians and serious New Testament scholars. Anybody who knows the Gospels at all should find their understanding much challenged and enriched by this book.” Jenny Turner, Guardian
“A very profound and subtle examination of the religious imagination.” Andrew Brown, Independent
