Item Description...
Overview
A lucid rendering of the social and political world of Jesus explores the pervasive Greek cultural influences and the oppressive Roman presence that shaped first-century Palestine. Reprint. 125,000 first printing.

Publishers Description
From the bestselling author of How the Irish Saved Civilization and The Gifts of the Jews, his most compelling historical narrative yet.
How did an obscure rabbi from a backwater of the Roman Empire come to be the central figure in Western Civilization? Did his influence in fact change the world? These are the questions Thomas Cahill addresses in his subtle and engaging investigation into the life and times of Jesus.
Cahill shows us Jesus from his birth to his execution through the eyes of those who knew him and in the context of his time--a time when the Jews were struggling to maintain their beliefs under overlords who imposed their worldview on their subjects. Here is Jesus the loving friend, itinerate preacher, and quiet revolutionary, whose words and actions inspired his followers to journey throughout the Roman world and speak the truth he instilled--in the face of the greatest defeat: Jesus' crucifixion as a common criminal. Daring, provocative, and stunningly original, Cahill's interpretation will both delight and surprise.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
read it through twice  May 1, 2008
Part of my high regard for this book is based on timing. My own frustration with other men speaking with such over-whelming certainty about God, Christ, life and death had reached a peak, shortly before I picked up this volume. I agree the opening chapters setting the scene about the Greek, Roman and Hebrew world before Christ were at times a bit dense for me (and I generally read alot of history). But from there on out I practically inhaled it. Mr. Cahill managed to both deflate alot of what I believe needed deflating and strongly reafirmed feelings I wasn't even quite sure I had. It works and I'm glad I read it. One side issue: I've seen hundreds of images of the crucifixtion but, I never really "got it" until reading Mr. Cahill's description. He made it more real and more awful than even Mr. Gibson's film. After reading some of these other reviews I'm reminded how polarizing an issue faith/religion can be. But after reading this volume I felt energized about my own personal leap of faith. Thanks Mr. Cahill.
 
Didn't read it  May 12, 2007
Though I might read this but as it turned out, I didn't...it is still around here somewhere....
 
beautiful portrait of my savior...   Apr 19, 2007
I loved this book because it challenged the picture I had of Jesus in my head but didn't challenge my beliefs of Jesus. It added a deepening and understanding of the divinity of Jesus. I love Cahill's books and not just because I'm Irish and we saved western civilization.
 
Desire of the Everlasting Hills: The World Before and After Jesus   Mar 8, 2007
This book is not up to the quality of How the Irish Saved Civilization. Too much of his writing is merely quoting sources. Actually it is rather boring.
 
Magical  Jan 5, 2007
I have read all of Mr. Cahill's books and consider this to be the finest. He answers and ambitious question -- "Did Jesus Matter?" By comparing the expectations of the civilized world before and after Jesus in a wonderfully entertaining fashion, he provides fresh insights and makes a compelling case. Whether you are a Christian or not, you can appreciate this captivating perspective and Mr. Cahill's lively writing.
