Today Iscariot was released!!!
Description: In Jesus, Judas believes
he has found the One—a miracle-worker. The promised Messiah and future
king of the Jews, destined to overthrow Roman rule. Galvanized, Judas
joins the Nazarene’s followers, ready to enact the change he has waited
for all his life.
But Judas’ vision of a nation free from Roman
rule is crushed by the inexplicable actions of the Nazarene himself, who
will not bow to social or religious convention—who seems in the end to
even turn against his own people. At last, Judas must confront the fact
that the master he loves is not the liberator he hoped for, but a man
bent on a drastically different agenda.
Iscariot is the story of
Judas—from his tumultuous childhood and tenuous entry into a career and
family life as a devout Jew, to a man known to the world as the betrayer
of Jesus. But even more, it is a singular and surprising view into the
life of Jesus himself that forces us all to reexamine everything we
thought we knew about the most famous—and infamous—religious icons in
My Thoughts: Now I am about half way through reading this, so I do not have a review yet. So far, I love it. The imagery is great for helping me see the Biblical stories, and not in the way of a bedtime story. I will have a review by the end of the week.
There is a giveaway for Iscariot on Goodreads.
