Description

In Israel, in the turbulent first century, a baby is born to a humble Jewish family - but to a great destiny. The tyrannical rule of King Herod has driven the family from the Holy Land to the relative safety of cosmopolitan Alexandria. But on Herod's death, they decide to return home to Israel, to Galilee, a troubled land under Roman occupation.

Préface
The book Anne Rice was born to write, a novel about the 'ultimate supernatural hero, the ultimate outsider, and the ultimate immortal of them all'.

Prince Lestat, published in 2014, and Prince Lestat and the Realms of Atlantis, published in 2016, were the first new Vampire Chronicle novels for over a decade. Anne Rice lives in California.

Texte du rabat

Anne Rice's most ambitious work - a novel, based on the gospels, about the life of Jesus. He comes into the world, child of a virgin birth, celebrated by angels singing to shepherds, and is visited by magi from the east. He is God and Man and grows up to perform miracles - healing the sick, driving out demons, feeding a multitude with only a few loaves and fishes. He can walk on water. He is cruelly executed, but rises from the dead, coming back to his frightened followers to start a religion that will, within two and a half centuries, encompass the entire Western world. All this - accomplished by God - is the material of the novel.
