Passionate, intelligent, and irresistibly real, this is a Jesus pulsing with life who will captivate you as thoroughly as he did the men and women who journeyed with him across Galilees rugged countryside. Days of centuries past become today, lit with bright colors of the imagination. Tracing Jesuss footsteps from his boyhood in Nazareth, Wangerin offers an intimate, moment-by-moment unfolding of Jesus - who and how he was and the life he lived - viewed through the eyes of the two people who loved him best: the disciple called beloved, and the woman Mary, Jesuss mother. Jesus: A Novel is a magnum opus of image and emotion, portraying lives swept up in the drama of one man who would change the world forever. From his humble origins in a tiny back-country community, this lowly carpenter would rise to the ranks of teacher - and beyond, to prophet, miracle-worker, leader of the people ... and something greater still. Challenging traditions that broke hearts and minds, he would point the way toward a freedom none had imagined.
