Son of Man collects some of the very best work ? the most interesting, exciting, and well-written essays, fiction, and other writing ? about Jesus. It's above all a book of good reading by good writers: storytellers such as Robert Graves (King Jesus), Philip Roth (The Conversion of the Jews), and Anthony Burgess (Jesus of Nazareth) as well as popular historians and essayists such as John Dominic Crossan (Jesus: A Revolutionary Biography) and Dwight Goddard (Was Jesus Influenced by Buddhism?). This book offers a multi-faith and fascinating portrait of a great historical figure, from a wide variety of viewpoints.
