Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Having completed the two cycles of legend to which she has devoted her career so far, Anne Rice gives us now her most ambitious and courageous book, a novel about the early years of CHRIST THE LORD, based on the Gospels and on the most respected New Testament scholarship.

The books power derives from the passion its author brings to the writing and the way in which she summons up the voice, the presence, the words of Jesus who tells the story.

From the Hardcover edition.

Review:

"Roles don't come a whole lot juicier than playing Jesus, so James Naughton hit the jackpot when he got to read Rice's first-person account of the life of Jesus — or Yeshua, as Rice has it. Naughton has a booming baritone — the voice of a born leader. As Jesus, he offers quiet strength and a touching sense of compassion. If the material is overly familiar, for obvious reasons, Naughton handles it well. His pronunciation of the Hebrew terms with which Rice studs the text is nimble, and his reading is hushed without being overly sappy or faux spiritual. Simultaneous release with the Knopf hardcover (Reviews, Feb. 4). (Apr.)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Synopsis:

This second installment of Rice's hugely ambitious and courageous life of Christ series begins during his last winter before his baptism and concludes with the miracle at Cana. As with "Out of Egypt," this novel is based on the Gospels and on the most respected New Testament scholarship. Unabridged. 11 CDs.
