Description
The author of The Last Station and The Art of Subtraction, poet, novelist, and biographer Jay Parini here brings a life's worth of contemplation on Jesus to this brief, thought-provoking biography. The main trend of modern theology has hinged on the notion of "demythologizing" Jesus; Parini instead seeks to re-mythologize him, taking Jesus as the human face of God. Parini's chronicle considers the basic question: What about Jesus's story is so moving that millions of people over two millennia have considered it a paradigm for living?

"Jay Parini offers us in less than 200 pages a warm, bold, strong, well-written historical biography of Jesus Christ. No kidding. It is probably the most reliable biography on Christ written for a century or two."Huffington Post
