The Jesus of Faith and the Jesus of History are two different beings, with two different stories. In this brilliant and bestselling biography, A. N. Wilson reappraises our readings of the Gospels and, with extraordinary insight and clarity, reinterprets the story of Jesus's birth, his life as a carpenter and the dramatic events surrounding his arrest and trial. Written with profound scepticism, A. N. Wilson's book triumphantly rescues Jesus from the tangles of Christian history, presenting us with a compelling portrait of the man behind the myth.

A.N. Wilson writes like an angel * New Statesman and Society *
Those exceptional talents displayed in his biographies are combined with those equally splendid gifts of imaginative writing which characterise his novels * Literary Review *
Many aspects of Wilson's book will anger or amuse believing Christians and serious New Testament scholars... Anybody who knows the Gospels at all should find their understanding much challenged and enriched by this book * Guardian *
He writes beautifully... I found myself carried along on page after page -- William Westwood, Bishop of Peterborough * Mail on Sunday *
A.N. Wilson's Jesus is a very good book indeed... His novelist's instinct is alert to the little details which bring Jesus to life...[it is] an excellent read and sends you scurrying back to buy the Gospels * Daily Telegraph *
