The Shadow of the Galilean
This item is a print on demand title and will be dispatched in 1-3 weeks.
Combining New Testament study with the terseness of thriller writing, Gerd Theissen conveys the gospel story in the fresh and imaginative prose of a novel.
The story is told by Andreas, an imaginary contemporary of Jesus, through whom we learn a great deal about life and politics in Palestine, as well as what Jesus (the Galilean of the title) might have been like and how he might have behaved.
'A brilliant essay in popularisation... Few contributions in this field can have been so much fun to write and few indeed are so entertaining to read.' - Theology
' This book is amazing. If you thought German academics were incapable of writing interesting material for the ordinary Christian, just try this.' - Themelios
