From the cover: “If Jesus had been born in the second half of the twentieth century, been brought up in our modern society, had grown to manhood, proffered his message and met his cruel end in the late 1970’s, what would he be like and what would he say? Anthony Storey, a psychologist by profession, has written a novel about this very theme. His Jesus, born to a strong-minded Yorkshire woman who claims his to be a virgin birth, is brought up partly in England and partly in France. He is of slight, almost feminine build, and his gentleness contrasts sharply with his mother’s ferocious, honest and single-minded nature. His presence radiates concern and evokes extreme violence and doubt in those who come under his spell. Anthony Storey’s Jesus performs miracles and undoes them at the same time.
