Item Description...
A second volume in the author's series of novels chronicling the life of Christ begins prior to his baptism in the Jordan River and concludes with the miracle at Cana, as he leaves his everyday life in Nazareth to confront his destiny, the Devil's temptations, and the call to be Israel's liberator from Roman occupation. 500,000 first printing.

Publishers Description
Anne Rice's second book in her hugely ambitious and courageous life of Christ begins during his last winter before his baptism in the Jordan and concludes with the miracle at Cana.
It is a novel in which we see Jesus--he is called Yeshua bar Joseph--during a winter of no rain, endless dust, and talk of trouble in Judea.
Legends of a Virgin birth have long surrounded Yeshua, yet for decades he has lived as one among many who come to the synagogue on the Sabbath. All who know and love him find themselves waiting for some sign of the path he will eventually take.
And at last we see him emerge from his baptism to confront his destiny--and the Devil. We see what happens when he takes the water of six great limestone jars, transforms it into cool red wine, is recognized as the anointed one, and urged to call all Israel to take up arms against Rome and follow him as the prophets have foretold.
As with "Out of Egypt," the opening novel, "The Road to Cana "is based on the Gospels and on the most respected New Testament scholarship. The book's power derives from the profound feeling its author brings to the writing and the way in which she summons up the presence of Jesus.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Christ the Lord: The Road to Cana  Mar 31, 2010
I am not finished reading this, but it is proving to be as interesting to me as the first in this series from Anne Rice. The depth of historical and theological research is astounding.
Well done, once again, Mrs. Rice.
The Road to Canna  Mar 8, 2010
I thoroughly enjoy reading this book. It fascinates me how Anne Rice portrays Jesus feelings and thoughts - interrelating passages from the Bible.
An excellent 2nd book!  Mar 4, 2010
This is an excellent second entry in a story I thought I knew. These 2 books have filled in the majority of what the life of Christ could have been like, not just an open mystery. Yes, it is fiction, but Ann Rice puts everything she has into keeping this story as historicly and humanly acurate as is possible and has given me much to ponder. Anne Rice's writing gets better with each and every story she tells. Quite greedely, I pray for her a long and satisfying life.
Christ The Lord The Road to Cana  Feb 18, 2010
I really liked this book. It makes the Bible come alive. You can imagine how people lived in those times. Anne Rice is such a good storyteller, she can weave a story, so you think you were there.Its easy to read and her story flows from the beginning to the end. If you like biblical novels, this book is a great read.
Christ The Robot  Feb 17, 2010
"GOOD LORD," - How Contrived!

I've endured her lack of proper punctuation for decades, even enjoyed the surreal effects she's had on my brains hemispheres in running two disparate sentences together sans semi-colons (I think she's used TWO of them in toto, in ALL of her previous books LOL) but if she gets any sloppier it will pass from merely disjointed into the realm of unintelligible entirely.

She is clearly an idolater at heart, spinning shiny-shiny bling images, and merely categorical idols, together in previously-interesting mental Mosaics, but in these books on Jesus Christ she goes FAR too far in so-doing.

Her "Jesus" constantly refers to His First Person self as "Christ The Lord," a redundancy if ever there was one, for the Christ means merely The Messiah... He thus only self identifies as "The Messiah, The Lord." Why not keep going, then? As: "The Messiah, The Lord, The Greatest, The Etcetera...!?"


I'm afraid she has simply taken Catholic-Church-approved and vetted lists of "facts" and strung them all together... her robotic version of Christ acts as a somnambulist, whose empty head serves merely as an echo-chamber for the thoughts of others; a hologram image of Christ derived from centuries of wary and self-flagellating committee-thinking.

I 'Believe' it's merely an evasive way for her to cover up and obscure her own true self, to avoid some navel-gazing sense of "guilt," to avoid censure and blame, in case of missing some niggling, sacred 'detail,' in the odious way of ritualization; some sort of myopically self-entranced, hop-scotch stations of the cross re-enactment.

She is inflicting some sort of internalized, delusive and masochistic penance on herself, in writing these wooden books... and we, her loyal admirers, are thus-forced to suffer along with her, albeit not in precisely the same way.

And it reflects so-poorly upon her; her writing has become laboured and boring. Her own inserted self's ex-machina 'Bruria' character, still merely speaks in the same tired voice of her ancient L'estat. The Ego has Landed, shot down by Time.

Moi? I so-miss the 'real' Anne Rice, whose earliest work actually inspired me to better see myself in the mirror, as the blonde and not the Blasco; I had given her such kudos in killing the old ennui, that to see her own mind dessicate like this is a real Tragedy of Error - what she no-doubt would still-regard as 'Sin.'

Has she herself become merely an empty-minded husk, drained of her great and apparently now merely previous potential, a tired, dust-filled puppet mummer of the Company line of the millenniae of time-worn and soon-irrelevant religious self- Salesmen?

And the back cover actually disengeneously states that: "The book's power derives from the profound feeling the author brings to the writing and the way in which she summons up the presence of Jesus."

*This* book's "Power?!" ...and... "Feeling...?" ...and...

"Summons UP?!" What a put-Down!


I snap my fingers: Anne! Come back to us! Awaken!

We - all - so-miss... the real you!

Your own Dear, Friend,

~Uncle Vladdi~
