Summary
Gripped by the tale of a Messiah whose blood we drink and body we eat, author Emmanuel Carrère revisits the story of the early Church. With an idiosyncratic and at times iconoclastic take on the charms and foibles of the Church fathers, Carrère follows the ragtag group of early Christians through the tumultuous days of the faith's founding. He recreates the climate of the New Testament, intertwining his own reckoning of the central tenets of the faith with the lives of the first Christians. Carrère puts himself in the shoes of Saint Paul and above all Saint Luke, charting Luke's encounter with the marginal Jewish sect that eventually became Christianity and retracing his investigation of its founder, an obscure religious freak who died under notorious circumstances. Carrère sets out on a headlong chase through the latter part of the Bible, drawing out protagonists who believed they were caught up in the most important events of their time. 2017
