NEW YORK NEWSDAY
Sifting through 2,000 years of myth, miracle, sacred and profane texts, Biblical commentary, and archeological scholarship, A.N. Wilson overturns long-cherished legends about every aspect of Jesus' life. What emerges is a vivid, gripping narrative that combines impeccable scholarship with the dazzling intuitions of a brilliant literary mind. In JESUS: A LIFE, we discover anew the true beauty and wrenching drama of the life of the central figure in Western civilization.
