affairs is very apparent in this intense book. What happens
when the Roman Catholic church discovers the existence of a
letter purported to have been written by Jesus Christ? This
is the crux of this well researched and totally believable
book. The battle between good and evil is portrayed well here
while not being tedious or slow moving. The most intriguing
aspect of The Judas Testament is that with the exception of
most obvious character, Dr. Jack Gould, the motives of the
other's are often murky and the alliances are not quite
apparent until almost three-quarters of the story. Nazis,
Roman Catholic priests, British Intelligence and the former
KGB are all thrown together in this quietly frightning book.
The bottomline? The Catholic Church will not allow the world
to see a different Jesus than the one who exists in the Bible
and they will do anything, ally themselves with anyone to
If The Judas Testament had been published 7-8 years later, and given a big publicity push, he might have given Dan Brown a run for his money. It's a shame that although Aycliffe or Denis McEoin (seems to be some confusion about his real name) keeps turning out novels that probably are equally as good, he apparently is given next to no promotion by his publisher(s). I haven't checked to see how many have been published in the USA, but I doubt many.
He must have scared his publisher on this book. I do not believe the phrase "Judas Testament" is found in the novel. It's all about the Jesus Testament, of course. I suppose the publisher felt it just could not use such a title for the book so Judas, who has absolutely nothing to do with it, is brought in from far left field.
