In this ingenious and spellbinding retelling of the life of Jesus, Philip Pullman revisits the most influential story ever told. He offers a radical new take on the myths and mysteries of the gospels and of the church that has shaped the course of the last two millennia. Charged with mystery, compassion and enormous power, The Good Man Jesus and the Scoundrel Christ throws fresh light on who Jesus was and asks the reader questions that will continue to reverberate long after the final page is turned. For above all, this book is about how stories become stories.
Sein Name ist der Inbegriff des Verräters: Judas. Aber ist unser Bild von Judas falsch? Bestsellerautor Jeffrey Archer und der theologische Experte Francis J. Moloney werfen einen neuen Blick auf das Rätsel, das Menschen seit Jahrhunderten bewegt. Sie erzählen die Geschichte Jesu aus der Perspektive von Judas und eröffnen so eine höchst plausible neue Lesart der christlichen Überlieferung, in der die Tragödie von Judas und das Erbarmen Jesu deutlich wird. Theologisch fundiert, mit dem Segen des Vatikan entwickeln die Autoren die Motive, die Judas' Handeln bestimmten, und zeigen, dass sein Selbstmord nur eine Legende ist. Dieses Buch verändert unser Bild von Judas grundlegend.
