Testament by Nino Ricci
In Testament, Canadian author Nino Ricci tells a fictionalized account of Jesus's life, focusing on him as a man. The novel is divided into four sections, each told by a different person in his life. The different narrators are Judas, Mary Magdalene, his mother Mary, and Simon, a young Syrian shepherd. The author couples his fanciful story of Jesus as a mere mortal becoming myth with a realistic depiction of political and ethnic intrigue of the era. It's an approach that some will find blasphemous and others will find thought-provoking. The Christian Science Monitor says, "Nino Ricci's Testament deserves a wide audience and should ignite vigorous debate."
