Christian Fiction: Jesus’ Perspective

There are different religious fictions, however Christian fiction is the most common in the U.S. It can vary from an inspirational story in modern times to something involving mythical creatures. From there it can also explore the end of the world and the prophets and their relatives.

Anne Rice has done something different. She wrote Christ the Lord: Out of Egypt which is about young Jesus. Yes, it is literally from the perspective of Jesus when he was younger. I find it to be a good book. What do you think of someone trying to write from the perspective of Jesus, if your Christian? Could you imagine what it would have been like for Jesus growing up?

I think it took some bravery and imagination to be able to write a great story from his perspective. I couldn’t fathom what was going through Jesus’ head while he was growing up. Anne Rice’s book enters new territory and bring Jesus to life. It makes him more human and real, in my opinion. She did a great job writing this.
