Publishers Description
Having completed the two cycles of legend to which she has devoted her career so far, Anne Rice gives us now her most ambitious and courageous book, a novel about the early years of CHRIST THE LORD, based on the Gospels and on the most respected New Testament scholarship.
The book's power derives from the passion its author brings to the writing and the way in which she summons up the voice, the presence, the words of Jesus who tells the story.

"From the Hardcover edition."

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A Worthwhile Read  Jul 5, 2007
I've been a fan of Anne Rice since a classmate recommended "Lasher" to me over 10 years ago. Since then, I've read most of her books. One thing I've always found remarkable is her ability to develop living, breathing characters. That talent makes a strong appearance in "Out of Egypt", but not in the same way as in her other books. What I've always found to be compelling about her characters is their complexity and their abundant self contradictions. this is what make them appear so human. With Jesus Christ as the main character, those contradictions do not come quite so easily. Her talent is apparent in the misleadingly simple descriptions of Christ's family members - as one takes a moment to consider the 7-year-old's descriptions of the people around him, one realizes that much can be inferred and interpreted from his words. However, when it comes to Christ's own character, the lack of complexity was slightly disappointing to me. This is Jesus Christ we're talking about here - he is good, and does not find it hard to be so. In the end, his moral certainty takes away some of his humanity, which I think is counter to Rice's goal. Christ's character keeps making me think of "Memnoch the Devil" and Memnoch's issue with God becoming a man: it seems he never truly experienced what it is to be human. Sure, Christ experiences confusion and fear at times, but there aren't really any signs of doubt or weakness.

While "Out of Egypt" isn't my favorite Anne Rice book, it is definitely one I would recommend. The perspective on young Christ is unique, interesting, and extremely though-provoking. Despite my issues with the character of Christ, the writing is definitely on par with my high expectations of Rice. The large amount of research she put in is apparent in her fine attention to detail, even to those of us who lack the expertise and time to verify every point.

I look forward to reading the rest of the books in the series with the hope that the image of Christ will become easier for me to relate to as an imperfect human.
Christ the Lord Out of Egypt  Jul 3, 2007
Our book club read this book, and I got my copy out of the library. It is such a wonderful book, I felt as if I were there. I made me know the possibility of Jesus as a child reacting to His self-awareness in such a manner. I bought the book just so that I could re-read it whenever I wanted.
Normal Childhood?  Jun 28, 2007
There were quite a few things in this book that stuck out as thoughts I had never envisioned. In college I had spent some time thinking of what Jesus was like as a child. This occurred about the time that a religion class introduced me to the Apocrypha. I remember discussing the possibility of Jesus killing a child and bringing them back to life. So, it amazes that Jesus possibly had to go through childhood. Maybe I am confusing the Trinity again, but why would God in human form have to go through a period of discovering who He is. It does make Him more human. The other point that I find interesting is how His family struggled to hide Jesus' miraculous birth from him. What is Joseph's purpose in concealing the facts from Him? These both show that Jesus cannot handle his powers until he has come of age and understood Jewish teachings.
Fiction gives color to history  Jun 21, 2007
Between the Gospel accounts of Jesus' birth and his twelfth year there is a huge blank space in what we know about Him. Using history, fable, and a lot of imagination Anne Rice has filled in that blank with a fascinating look at what Jesus might have been like as a little boy.

The book opens with Jesus living with his parents, brother James, and extended family in Alexandria, Egypt. Mysterious things are happening around him that make him think he is not like the other kids. There are whispers of terrible things that made his family have to leave Bethlehem, where he was born, in a hurry. There are whispers that his birth was unusual and his parents never speak of it.

In "Christ Our Lord: Out of Egypt" we follow Jesus the boy as he tells of his family's journey from Egypt back to his parents' home town of Nazareth. Mrs. Rice takes us through a turbulant and meticulously researched Palestine of the first century to shed light on the context that makes Jesus' life so amazing and important to everyone who came after him. The story drags a little in places, but the inner turmoil of a boy who is God and doesn't know it and parents who struggle to raise a son who is destined to save His people in the face of enemies who would kill him makes the book compelling. This is fiction and there are things in this book that are not found in the pages of the bible, but it is definitely worth reading for a more vivid portrait of the man who is the center of history.
kind of like the vampire ones  Jun 17, 2007
i wasnt sure what to expect with anne rice being christianish now, but the book was good. it was like reading one of her vampire novels, only instead of drinking blood, the main character can heal or kill things. it is missing the eroticism. but other than that, a usual anne rice book, which means it's of course excellent.
