Summary:

Anne Rice’s second book in her hugely ambitious and courageous life of Christ begins during his last winter before his baptism in the Jordan and concludes with the miracle at Cana.

It is a novel in which we see Jesus—he is called Yeshua bar Joseph—during a winter of no rain, endless dust, and talk of trouble in Judea.

Legends of a Virgin birth have long surrounded Yeshua, yet for decades he has lived as one among many who come to the synagogue on the Sabbath. All who know and love him find themselves waiting for some sign of the path he will eventually take.

And at last we see him emerge from his baptism to confront his destiny—and the Devil. We see what happens when he takes the water of six great limestone jars, transforms it into cool red wine, is recognized as the anointed one, and urged to call all Israel to take up arms against Rome and follow him as the prophets have foretold.

As with Out of Egypt, the opening novel, The Road to Cana is based on the Gospels and on the most respected New Testament scholarship. The book’s power derives from the profound feeling its author brings to the writing and the way in which she summons up the presence of Jesus.

    Anne Rice did such a wonderful job of bringing the story of Jesus to life in a novel. She wrote the story in such a way that it was easy to believe we might actually be watching the events unfold in front of us. Even casual Bible readers will recognize events from the Bible, for example, Jesus attending the wedding and turning water into wine. The story was told in such a way to give us a plausible reason for why Jesus was at the wedding and why he might have wanted to turn the water into wine. We also saw how Jesus could live as fully as a man on Earth and yet also be God in one. A good read/listen!
