Read in January, 2000

Behold the Man is a sci-fi/fantasy (sort of) novel about Karl, who travels back in time with the intention of finding Jesus. I seem to remember the reason for this is that Karl doubts Jesus ever existed. Karl gets caught up in the Messiah story... to say more would be to give the plot away. As far as MM novels go, this is as close to a traditional tale as MM gets. I've read BtM several times, 2000 being my latest experience. MM has twisted the story of Jesus very cleverly, and much of my high rating is because of this. The first time I read BtM I thought it was amazing, although subsequent reads have dimmed my appreciation a little, inevitably I suppose.
