The Gospel According to Jesus Christ

The life of Jesus Christ controversially retold: from his conception, childhood, missing years ...; the usual themes of the Passion, martyrdom and destiny, God and faith, good versus evil, guilt and sin, moral dilemmas, but also some surprises: Jesus as a flawed sexual being, the role of women; provocative conclusions, sacrilege, atheism, depictions of ancient Jewish life, some sacred cows slayed; signed by the author.
