Martin Vesole about this book: This book tells what happens when an ancient scroll is found in a cave near Nazareth relating a somewhat different story of the life of Jesus. Written by his best friend from childhood, Jesus is said to be a normal human being who was a great teacher and healer, and was executed by the Romans for being proclaimed King of the Jews.
The discovery of this scroll sets the Christian world on its ear and a panel of experts is convened to discuss the scroll in a world-wide telecast. The panel consists of a male rabbi, a female televangelist, an elderly British historian, and a gay Unitarian minister. Besides a debate concerning the merits of Judaism vs Christianity, there are some new age ideas that can elevate both religions and make them more attractive in the 21st Century, along with a new view of why bad things happen to good people.
Plot-wise, there is a forbidden love story, a shocking murder, a vast right-wing conspiracy, and a miraculous ending. The characters are likable and memorable and there is a lot of serious writing about many important topics. But, it is also light-hearted and fun at times. It has something for everyone. Destined to be a classic.
