's review

it was ok

It is a monumental task to write a novel about Jesus' life. It's certainly not a task I would take on, so props to Wangerin for giving it a try. But couldn't he make his Jesus more lovable? Less intense and angry? And seriously, would Jesus really say "shut up"? I'm sure the historical research is accurate, and he clearly took a lot of the dialogue straight from the Bible. But it was missing the sort of loving, compassionate, emotional connection that one would expect from a book about Jesus.
