Christ Summary


Christ: A Crisis In The Life Of God by Jack Miles

In his Pulitzer Prize-winning God: A Biography, Jack Miles offered a highly original approach to the character of the God of the Old Testament, addressing him as a character in a book, a literary charter. In Christ, reading the New Testament but hearing the Old echoing in its every verse, Miles tells the story of the agonising conflict that overtook God when he failed to keep his promise to his people, and the radical change in his character that this failure brought about. Coming after a large number of books pursuing the elusive 'historical Jesus', Christ: A Crisis in the Life of God offers a frankly mythological Christ, delivering a profound and dramatic companion to the story begun in God: A Biography.

Christ Reviews


"'So should we give Christ a rave? Just about. It brims with ideas, and Miles has a teacher's urge to find a profusion of ways to explain those ideas.' " * Daily Telegraph *
"'A wide-ranging, eloquent and arresting account that treats the Jesus of the new Testament as the most exceptional, alluring and enduring literary myth known to Mankind...As self-professed Christians in the West, including our own Prime Minister and the US President, take revenge for September 11, this readable and passionate book should give them food for thought.'" * Daily Mail *
"Elegant and entertaining." * Karen Armstrong in The Times *
