Barabbas (Vintage International)

by

Barabbas (Vintage International) Cover

 

Staff Pick

There are those — and they are legion — who believe that their souls shall someday unravel and their intricacies and silences will finally be known by their Lord. Then there is Barabbas, the subject of this novel by Par Lagerkvist. Barabbas, the acquitted, would like to believe in the fellow that wasn't spared crucifixion, and he has even fallen to his knees and nearly prayed, but to no avail. Lagerkvist (himself spiritually conflicted) illuminates in this bare and moving novel the life of a reluctantly faithless man.
