In this powerful bookwhich bears comparison with Frank Morisons classic Who Moved the Stone?skilled investigative journalist Gordon Thomas offers an enthusiastically detailed account of the life and death of Jesus. Previously published to widespread acclaim, this book sold over 800,000 copies and became a worldwide best-seller. Now published for the first time in the U.S., it contains a new introduction and conclusion explaining the books creation and the authors pilgrimage to a renewed faith in the historical Jesus.
A modern dramatization of the known facts, The Jesus Conspiracy presents a startling vision of the Christ of faith through the lens of the historical Jesus and leads to some surprising conclusions. It pairs modern and historical investigation with the results of current archaeological and anthropological discoveries. Spiritual seekers as well as seasoned Christians will enjoy this book, as it fulfills the desire to know more about the life and ministry of the Jesus of Nazareth.
Transcends all religious boundaries, gives offense to none, yet manages to stay steely close to the truth.
A suspenseful drama.... The pace is quick and compelling. The Jesus presented is real, painstakingly real. As a result, the magnanimity of the sacrificein the view of anyones faith is overwhelming.
