Instead this account kept me enthralled. I read the previous book, and found the gentle tender account of childhood moving, but this book staggered me. The account of the temptation in the desert, the wonderful plot of the marriage at Cana, and it's significance, building through the book, and the sheer loveliness and humanity of her portrayal of Christ... this is a beautiful book.
Somewhere on line someone mentioned that Anne Rice had written a "tetralogy" of Christ... so far I've only found two books. I'd very much like to read the rest, if she's written them, or if they've been published.
I'm an ex Catholic, and surrounded as I am by very fundementalist protestants I often find myself yearing for more of the Christocentric liturgy of my childhood. I think Anne Rice has written a truly Christological book. I'm sure that she has been attacked by people who are caught up in trivia, and miss the big picture, After all, Jesus said, "look to me, all you ends of the earth and be saved." He didn't say "worship me in just this way or I'll smite you for all eternity.Read more ›
My fears were groundless. Rice knows exactly what she is doing. When the narrative reurns to "Gospel" incidents - the baptism in the Jordan, the temptations in the wilderness, the Cana wedding the story comes together beautifully. I`m now looking forward to volume three.
I enjoyed this so much that I passed it on to others to read.
