Mails from NYC usually within 12 hours. ; 8.8 x 5.6 x 1.2 inches; 456 pages; From Booklist Ricci is Canadian, but his renown is international, based on his best-selling trilogy of autobiographical novels, The Book of Saints (1991) , In a Glass House (1995) , and Where She Has Gone (1998) . His latest book is a stunning historical novel that will only enhance his high reputation. Basically, it is a reconstruction of the life of Jesus. That said, what Ricci does is build an absolutely beautiful, rigorously intelligent, fiercely thoughtful fictional biography that views the historical Jesus from the perspective of four individuals who knew him: Judas, Mary Magdalen, his mother, and a young fictitious shepherd. Historical novels, to be successful, must create an atmosphere appropriate to the times ("historical plausibility, " as Ricci refers to it) and understand the psychology of living in that particular time and place. Ricci accomplishes both splendidly, from seeing Judas' role as a participant in a liberation movement against Rome (which is the basis of his view of Jesus) to Mary's rape by a Roman soldier, which resulted in the birth of the boy she called Jesus. Ricci's interpretation will spark controversy among readers with a background in religion; those who simply enjoy well-grounded historical novels as well as a lovely prose style will appreciate it for its fictional merits alone. Expect demand based not only on publicity but also word of mouth. Brad Hooper American Library Assn. Library Jour: Canadian-born Ricci-author of the best-selling trilogy of autobiographical novels The Book of Saints, In a Glass House, and Where She Has Gone-here undertakes an ambitious task: to imagine and reconstruct the life of Jesus from the perspective of four people: Judas, Mary Magdalen, his mother, and a fictitious shepherd. The man who eventually emerges from this carefully researched and richly imagined work is charismatic, contradictory, sometimes inscrutable-and also very human. Ricci intentionally avoids engaging the most sensational and hotly disputed aspects of Jesus' life-his possible divinity and his ability to perform miracles. Instead, he focuses on the ordinary, everyday activities of his life and work: speaking to crowds, dealing with political functionaries, and managing his increasingly large, demanding, and often quarrelsome group of disciples. We know that Jesus lived and worked within a complex and extremely dangerous political environment, and Ricci skillfully brings this historical milieu to life. Ricci's Jesus is very much a man of flesh and blood, seeking to effect powerful social and spiritual change simply by championing the values of compassion and humility and by challenging ancient prejudices and traditions. Though some readers may find this portrait of Jesus unsatisfying or troublesome, others will no doubt find it quite compelling. For all libraries.

Testament - nouveau livre

2004, ISBN: 9780618446674

ID: 212138324

A stunning fictional biography, Testament presents the earthly life of Jesus from the perspectives of four fascinating figures. In powerful accounts colored by their own beliefs and desires, the following men and women tell the captivating story: Yihuda of Qiryat (Judas Iscariot), a freedom fighter working for Rome´s overthrow who is drawn to the charismatic teacher; Miryam of Migdal (Mary Magdalene), a disciple who finds in Jesus´ presence the intellectual stimulation that society has denied her; Miryam (Mary), the mother of Jesus, who has a complex relationship with her precocious son; Simon of Gergesa, a plainspoken shepherd who travels to Jerusalem and witnesses the last days of the Jewish preacher. With exquisite detail, Nino Ricci offers a vivid and provocative portrait of the historical Jesus, an ordinary man living in a time of political turmoil and spiritual uncertainty.
