The Jesus Conspiracy: An Investigative Reporter’s Look at an Extraordinary Life and Death
Author: Gordon Thomas
Publisher: Baker Publishing Group
With the success of Mel Gibson's The Passion of the Christ, Christians everywhere saw Jesus as a real man, perhaps for the first time. They were captivated and wanted to know more. Now, The Jesus Conspiracy, a modern dramatization of the known facts of Jesus' life, digs even deeper to present a startling vision of Christ through the lens of the historical Jesus. By pairing modern and historical investigation, Thomas offers readers current archaeological and anthropological discoveries that fulfill the desire to know more about the life and ministry of Jesus of Nazareth. He draws from non-canonical works, such as the Gospel of Nicodemus, to bring the social and cultural world of the first century alive for the modern reader. With some surprising conclusions, this book is an excellent resource for skeptics and believers, especially those who want to gain a deeper understanding of the world in which Jesus lived and died.
