This intriguing book, the result of an intense collaboration between one of the world's most popular storytellers and one of the world's leading biblical scholars, casts new light on the events leading up to the great betrayal.This audio edition of the "fifth gospel", ostensibly written by the son of Judas, is a retelling of the story of Jesus and Judas that will open a whole new debate among secular and religious listeners.
The unlikely partnership of Jeffrey Archer and Francis J. Moloney was formed after Archer sought advice from Cardinal Carlo Maria Martini about who should guide him through this demanding project. Among his many past students of the Pontifical Biblical Institute, Cardinal Martini singled out Professor Moloney, who completed his doctoral studies at Oxford University in 1975.
The project was as bold as it was simple: Archer would write a story for 21st-century readers; Moloney would ensure that the result would be credible as the writing of a first-century Christian or Jew.
Story-telling and scholarship have come together to create what will be one of the year's most intriguing and controversial books.
"Riveting and plausible." (Archbishop Desmond Tutu)
