King Jesus, Paperback / softback Book

King Jesus Paperback / softback

Part of the Penguin Modern Classics series

Description

Robert Graves's controversial historical novel is a bold reworking of the story of Christ.

Here Jesus is not the son of God, but the result of a secret marriage - the descendant of Herod and true King of the Jews.

Written from the perspective of a lowly official at the end of the first century AD, King Jesus recounts Jesus's birth, youth, life as a charismatic 'wonder worker' and the unorthodox, bitter nature of his death and resurrection.

Portraying Jesus not as divine but as a flawed human bent upon his own doom, this retelling of the gospels is a compelling blend of research, imagination and narrative power.
