This little book found me as I was walking by a second hand store with books out front for $1.00. After a most entertaining and thought-provoking read I must say I got away with the steal of the millennium. The book is peopled with characters, both biblical and modern, that bring so much of ourselves to the trial of Christ. The fact that Jesus is on trial and being charged with "Fraud" sets the stage for a riveting courtroom drama. If you come across the book, know that it was meant for you to read and re-evaluate your own belief system. Are you trying to live your life in a way that is in line with the teachings of your religion?
This book can change you! I took away one star just because I was thrown off by a few characters in the story that didn't seem to move the plot along. But then again, maybe I'll discover their purpose while thinking over the story. It was that deep and impressive.
Excerpt from page 128:
The clerk rose to face the prisoner. "Are you Jesus of Nazareth?"
Father O'Connell inclined his head. "I am," he said quietly.
"You are charged with fraud - in that, being an ordinary man, you deliberately led others to believe you enjoyed some special relationship with Almighty God, specifically, that you were his only Son." The clerk looked up at him. "How do you plead? Guilty, or not guilty?"
