Desire of the Everlasting Hills: The World Before and After Jesus (The Hinges of History) by Thomas Cahill

From the bestselling author ofHow the Irish Saved CivilizationandThe Gifts of the Jews, his most compelling historical narrative yet. How did an obscure rabbi from a backwater of the Roman Empire come to be the central figure in Western Civilization? Did his influence in fact change the world? These are the questions Thomas Cahill addresses in his subtle and engaging investigation into the life and times of Jesus. Cahill shows us Jesus from his birth to his execution through the eyes of those who knew him and in the context of his timea time when the Jews were struggling to maintain their beliefs under overlords who imposed their worldview on their subjects. Here is Jesus the loving friend, itinerate preacher, and quiet revolutionary, whose words and actions inspired his followers to journey throughout the Roman world and speak the truth he instilledin the face of the greatest defeat: Jesus crucifixion as a common criminal. Daring, provocative, and stunningly original, Cahills interpretation will both delight and surprise. From the Trade Paperback edition.
