Product Details


“Provocative and deeply engaging. . . . This is a spectacular story, and Miles tells it well. . . . Exciting reading.” –The New York Times Book Review

“No one who reads it will be able to think about even the most familiar Biblical scenes in quite the same way.” —Newsday

“The brilliance of Jack Miles’s new book on Christ is that it manages to "make strange" the best-known story in history. . . . Stratlingly original.” —The New Statesman

“As a way of seeing [God], Miles’s book has great power and depth.” –The New Yorker

Author Essay

Knopf sent advance reader’s editions of Christ: A Crisis in the Life of God to several readers–the first who answered the call which was posted on the home page of the Borzoi Reader. In turn, the readers agreed to read the book and respond with a question for Jack Miles. For their work, they received autographed copies of the printed hardcover.

Read the readers’ questions and Jack Miles’s answers, and read an essay by the author.
