Not terribly impressed with this one. The writing is relatively flat & the majority of Judas' "story" is just a recount of the events told in the other gospels. As a refresher of Jesus' life, this may fit the bill, but there's nothing spectacular about the writing. The ending offers another possible interpretation of Judas post-crucifixion, which may or may not be plausible, but that in itself wasn't enough to make this book memorable for me.

A mock-biography written in the "as told to" format, Jeffrey Archer creates a Judas who is vastly different from the cowardly traitor most of us met in Sunday School. This Judas is beloved of Jesus, and follows Jesus' instructions. It was an enjoyable read, and a quick one.

Good novelistic attempt to re-tell the story of Jesus of Nazareth through the eyes of Judas. Not an orthodox view of Jesus, but raises questions about the narratives of the four gospels. Frank Maloney (co-author) said his aim was to get people to look again at Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. Imaginative presentation with gilt-edged pages and traditional use of red ink makes the book a delight to hold.

Of course, this title attracted me. A gospel written by the man who handed Jesus over to be killed seems a contradiction. This is an interesting book. This story is narrated by Judas’s son, Benjamin Iscariot. In it he reveals all that his father told him about his life as a disciple. He explained how many events didn’t happen exactly as most people, today, believe they did. This book reads like a narrative. In fact, it is a work of collaboration between a storyteller, Jeffrey Archer, and a scholar, Francis J. Moloney, both interpreting the Gospel of Judas, thought to be a gnostic gospel written in the second century. I enjoyed the book. I just wonder how much is true. I wish I knew.

I enjoyed the perspective provided by the authors. It doesn't alter, in my mind, Judas' reputation.

I found this book to be written very well, in that it is put together like it is an actual Gospel and does use Gospel passages throughout it. It seems to be a deeper look into the mind of Judas. I found myself coming away with deeper faith and a new outlook of Judas. If you have ever questioned your beliefs about Judas or have an open mind, you will find this to be an excellent read.
