    PDF/EPUB The Liars' Gospel PDF Þ The Liars' Epub / Í songuarachando.co.uk liars' download, gospel ebok, The Liars' book, The Liars' Gospel PDFThe Liars' Gospel by Naomi Alderman is a creative retelling of life in Israel under Roman occupation and early on centers on Jesus Alderman's crafting of words is superb so it's uite disappointing that she put her talent to work slandering a public figure in such an offensive mannerIn the novel we are exposed to the viewpoints of Mary Barabbas and Judas as imagined by Alderman I can get behind historical fiction wherein we take a real place or course of events to set the scene and slide in imaginary characters to build a plot Likewise I enjoy a twist on a known public figure that shows another side of them that is faithful to their overall historical presence but adds a new dimension of storytelling But I really have a problem with

    PDF/EPUB The Liars' Gospel PDF Þ The Liars' Epub / Í songuarachando.co.uk liars' download, gospel ebok, The Liars' book, The Liars' Gospel PDFNaomi Alderman's new novel The Liars' Gospel is defintely not a book for everyone The book is set in the first century and centered around the life of a Jewish prophet Yehoshuah Jesus to us Although it is ostensibly a retelling of the story of Jesus I found Alderman's detailing of the political climate in Jerusalem during the rise and fall of Jesus much interesting The story is told from four viewpoints That of MarymYehoshuah's mother His friend and follower Ieudah of ueriot the Roman High Priest of Jerusalem Caiaphas and the rebel Bar Avo As you read it is easy to see that Marym is Mary Ieudah is Judas Iscariot and Bar Avo is Barrabas I thought that Alderman's decision to tell this

    PDF/EPUB The Liars' Gospel PDF Þ The Liars' Epub / Í songuarachando.co.uk liars' download, gospel ebok, The Liars' book, The Liars' Gospel PDFIt was an interesting idea writing a book about Jesus from a Jewish perspective but I was very disappointed The first century characters so obviously belonged in the 21st None of the characters were believable and the character development was stale and predictable Miriam Mary was the most interesting story but the other three characters Judah aka Judas Bar Avo aka Barabbas and Caiaphas as well as their stories all fell flat The cursing and the sexuality in the story so distracted from the world Alderman created that I wasn't able to enjoy it Most significantly the central character Yehoshua Jesus was so one dimensional and unimpressive it is difficult to believe that anyone could have mistaken him for the Messiah It would have been much interesting if Alderman had left the uestion of Yehoshua's credentials open as many Jewish Jesus scholars have done ie Daniel Boyarin and Amy Jill Levine a uestion

When did it become about Yehoshua instead

    PDF/EPUB The Liars' Gospel PDF Þ The Liars' Epub / Í songuarachando.co.uk liars' download, gospel ebok, The Liars' book, The Liars' Gospel PDFAn interesting take on a part of human history where myth and history collide There are people like Julius Caesar whom we know existed and about whom we know a fair amount And then there are people like Helen of Troy lost to pre history who as likely as not never existed Jesus of Nazareth is perched awkwardly between these two places and to my mind this made Naomi Alderman's story about life in Roman occupied Jerusalem a uite haunting novel about how stories and myths come to be and about what can never be known for certain And so we have a retelling of the parable of the talents which is uite different in its focus from the biblical account And it is not Yehoshuah but the political insurrectionist Bar Avo who persuades the fishermen of Galilee to throw their lot in with him It's beautifully written and to this admittedly uneducated reader the evocation of life in 0BCE Jerusalem feels spot on I don't know if her descripti
