This book collects some of the very best workthe most interesting, exciting, and well-written essays, fiction and other writingabout Jesus. Its above all a book of good reading by good writersstorytellers such as Robert Graves (King Jesus), Philip Roth (The Conversion of the Jews), and Anthony Burgess (Jesus of Nazareth) as well as popular historians and essayists such as John Dominic Crossan (Jesus: A Revolutionary Biography) and Dwight Goddard (Was Jesus Influenced by Buddhism?). This is decidedly not an academic or theological workno preachingbut rather a book for popular readers who are intrigued by Jesus role in contemporary literature and culture; are interested in Jesus and want to know more about his life; or are drawn to his story but dont fully know its richness. It offers a multi-faith and fascinating portrait of a great historical figure, from a wide variety of intelligent and creative viewpoints. As always with an Adrenaline book, it is also a riveting read: not the usual case with books about Jesus.
