Book Description:
One of our most admired writers takes us on a fresh and personal journey through the Gospels, exploring the mysteries surrounding Jesus.

During the past few years, Mary Gordon, a Christian all her life, found herself at odds with many others who identify themselves as Christians. In an effort to understand whether or not she had invented a Jesus to fulfill my own wishes, she decided to read the Gospels as narrative and to study Jesus as a character. In this impassioned and eye opening book, Gordon takes us through all the fundamental stories the Prodigal Son, the Temptation in the Desert, the parable of Lazarus, the Agony in the Garden pondering the intense strangeness of a deity in human form and the problem posed to her as an enlightened reader by the miracle of resurrection. What she rediscovers and reinterprets with her signature candor, intelligence, and straightforwardness is a rich store of overlapping, sometimes conflicting teachings that feel both familiar and tantalizingly elusive.

It is the mysterious figure of Jesus and his actual words that rest at the heart of the book and with which Gordon keeps us in thrall on every page.
