The Gospel According to Jesus Christ, Paperback / softback Book

The Gospel According to Jesus Christ Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

Saramago's Jesus is the son not of God but of Joseph.

Mary Magdalene is his lover not his convert. In the wilderness he tussles not with the Devil - a kindly and necessary evil - but with God, a fallible, power-hungry autocrat. And he must die not for the sins of the fathers but for the sins of the Father.

By investigating these simple inversions Saramago has woven a dark parable; a secular gospel of astonishing richness and depth. 'An original, wild and beautiful book' Times Literary Supplement
