Deeply moved by Jesus of Nazareth, Luigi Giacometti wanted to know who this man was and began a search for the man known as Jesus Christ. Who Was Jesus of Nazareth? is the culmination of five years of research into the relatively little-known facts about the short life of Christ.

Throughout the centuries, historians and artists have created a conventional image of Christ, sometimes romanticized and sentimentalized. But this was not the Christ the author encountered. This Jesus, "this anomaly," was a man of passion and contradiction. Who was this enigmatic Galilean, a carpenter who was given the name "son of God" and founded a kingdom of love on earth? This book-learned, lucid, and accessible-attempts to bring to life the character of the society in which Jesus lived, the political and religious issues, and the events of the time. Through this focus on "the minutiae of Jesus' age," Mr. Giacometti successfully delves more deeply than many others who have been equally fascinated with Jesus of Nazareth.
