Mel Gibsons controversial film showed that conflicting, destructive emotions are still very much alive, so this accessible little book . . . could do much to clear the air. Karen Armstrong, The Times (London)
There can be no doubt that around two thousand years ago, a charismatic Jewish figure named Jesus was judicially murdered, but the actual details of that event continue to be hotly debated to this day. Sifting through the myths, fabrications, and misunderstandings surrounding the Passion of the Christ, distinguished Jesus scholar Geza Vermes offers an intelligent and fascinating examination of the events of this extraordinary story. Getting as close as possible to the truth behind those few fateful days in Jerusalem, The Passion is vital reading for anyone wanting to know the truth.
