A Cross of Centuries: Twenty-five Imaginative Tales About the Christ by Perseus

Edited by award-winning writer Michael Bishop, A Cross of Centuries is a collection about the Biblical Jesus and figures so oddly Christ-like that they challenge our most heartfelt notions of the archetypal God-Man. Talents as diverse and remarkable as Fyodor Dostoyevsky and Gene Wolfe, Oscar Wilde and Mike Resnick, Ernest Hemingway and Karen Joy Fowler, Jorge Luis Borges and Romulus Linney, Isaac Babel and George Zebrowski, all weigh in with speculations as gripping as their own distinctive prose. Here are classic science-fiction tales such as Ray Bradburys The Man; imaginative literary reflections on Jesus ethics, as in Reynolds Prices A Desolate Woman; horrific misinterpretations of scripture, as in Borgess The Gospel According to Mark; and gentle wish-fulfillment fantasies, as in Dozois and Danns Slow Dancing with Jesus. Readers will also find four original stories, a funny novelette by mainstream newcomer John M. Williams, and surprises by Gregory Frost, Jack Slay Jr., Walter Wangerin Jr., Bud Webster, and World Fantasy Award-winner Jeffrey Ford. The reader encounters each individual Christ as humanity has for centuries experienced Him--as jokester or master, metaphor or role model, speaking Spirit or incarnate Son of God.
