Jesus in Twentieth-century Literature, Art, and Movies Hardback

Edited by Paul Burns


In the twentieth century a number of novelists, artists, and filmmakers, resurrected the life of Jesus genre made so popular in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries by Renan, Strauss, and others.

In addition, novelists Norman Mailer, Jose Saramago, and Ricci have written their own gospels.

Burns' collection--taken from a conference at a 2004 regional SBL meeting--explores the ways in which these portraits of Jesus continue to fulfill the familiar observation that people tend to depict Jesus in their own image.

In several of the portraits of Jesus, the artists offer a creative response to the realities of the human condition of our time.
