London: Annely Juda Fine Art, 1995. Minor creasing to the back cover, otherwise a good clean tight copy, with no creasing to the spine, of this soft-cover book dealing with three temporary large-scale works by the authors. The first was the ''Wrapped Reichstag'' which involved that building in Berlin being wrapped in 100,000 square metres of fabric; the second was ''The Gates'' in Central Park, New York, where 15 foot-high cloth panels were set up along the footpaths there; and the last was ''Over the River'' where cloth panels were set over the Payette river in Idaho. Pages not numbered but about 60pp, colour illustration throughout.. Soft Cover. Very Good/No Jacket. 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall., Annely Juda Fine Art, 1995, New York: Mariner Books - Houghton Mifflin. Fine 2004. Softcover. Marfree, acidfree fresh prtg is all spankin new; folded pg, not marked-in, clearance or discard. Mails from NYC usually within 12 hours. ; 8.8 x 5.6 x 1.2 inches; 456 pages; From Booklist Ricci is Canadian, but his renown is international, based on his best-selling trilogy of autobiographical novels, The Book of Saints (1991) , In a Glass House (1995) , and Where She Has Gone (1998) . His latest book is a stunning historical novel that will only enhance his high reputation. Basically, it is a reconstruction of the life of Jesus. That said, what Ricci does is build an absolutely beautiful, rigorously intelligent, fiercely thoughtful fictional biography that views the historical Jesus from the perspective of four individuals who knew him: Judas, Mary Magdalen, his mother, and a young fictitious shepherd. Historical novels, to be successful, must create an atmosphere appropriate to the times ("historical plausibility, " as Ricci refers to it) and understand the psychology of living in that particular time and place. Ricci accomplishes both splendidly, from seeing Judas' role as a participant in a liberation movement against Rome (which is the basis of his view of Jesus) to Mary's rape by a Roman soldier, which resulted in the birth of the boy she called Jesus. Ricci's interpretation will spark controversy among readers with a background in religion; those who simply enjoy well-grounded historical novels as well as a lovely prose style will appreciate it for its fictional merits alone. Expect demand based not only on publicity but also word of mouth. Brad Hooper © American Library Assn. Library Jour: Canadian-born Ricci-author of the best-selling trilogy of autobiographical novels The Book of Saints, In a Glass House, and Where She Has Gone-here undertakes an ambitious task: to imagine and reconstruct the life of Jesus from the perspective of four people: Judas, Mary Magdalen, his mother, and a fictitious shepherd. The man who eventually emerges from this carefully researched and richly imagined work is charismatic, contradictory, sometimes inscrutable-and also very human. Ricci intentionally avoids engaging the most sensational and hotly disputed aspects of Jesus' life-his possible divinity and his ability to perform miracles. Instead, he focuses on the ordinary, everyday activities of his life and work: speaking to crowds, dealing with political functionaries, and managing his increasingly large, demanding, and often quarrelsome group of disciples. We know that Jesus lived and worked within a complex and extremely dangerous political environment, and Ricci skillfully brings this historical milieu to life. Ricci's Jesus is very much a man of flesh and blood, seeking to effect powerful social and spiritual change simply by championing the values of compassion and humility and by challenging ancient prejudices and traditions. Though some readers may find this portrait of Jesus unsatisfying or troublesome, others will no doubt find it quite compelling. For all libraries.

Grounded in extensive research, and My starting point was that this character was not divine."From Governor General's Award-winner Nino Ricci, one of Canada's most highly acclaimed literary voices, Testament is a bold work of historical fiction. Set in a remote corner of the Roman Empire at a moment of political unrest and spiritual uncertainty, it re-tells the life of a holy man of enormous charisma who alters the course of human history. Grounded in extensive research, and written with the poetic sensibility that has earned Ricci an international reputation, Testament vividly recreates first-century Palestine in elegant but accessible prose to explore the story of the man we know as Jesus. Testament at once distances us from the familiar accounts by using Hebrew and Aramaic names. Moreover, he offers the story of Yeshua (Jesus) through the eyes and testimony of four fictional followers, reminiscent of yet utterly different from the Gospels, giving fresh perspective and a captivating narrative to an age-old story- Yihuda of Qiryat (Judas Iscariot) is a rebel freedom fighter working for Rome's overthrow, who sees Yeshua come in from the desert. He is drawn to him; and yet he is full of doubt, always an outsider, too intellectual to simply accept and be accepted. "Tell me your secret," he thinks, "make me new."- Miryam of Migdal (Mary Magdalene), whose family make a living curing fish, is captivated by the way Jesus includes her among his followers, who he encourages to ask questions and challenge him. For this woman, kept back by society from intellectual stimulation, he "reached inside me with hiswords to touch the inmost part of me."- Yeshua's mother Miryam tells us plainly that he was the result of a rape by a Roman legate; she was forced to marry an old man named Yehoceph, and give birth in his rough lodgings. Her eldest son quickly set himself apart from his Books, Fiction~~Christian~~General, Testament-Pa~~Ricci, 999999999, Testament Pa, Nino Ricci, 0618446672, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, , , , , Houghton Mifflin Harcourt

ID: 3508053

Set in a remote corner of the Roman Empire during a period of political unrest and spiritual uncertainty, Testament is a timeless story of how the holy man we know as Jesus alters forever the course of human history. We come to know Jesus through the eyes of four dissimilar people. First is Judas, a committed political fighter who is invigorated by his discussions with Jesus about a sovereign nation for the Jews -- a place Jesus imagines as a philosophical rather than a physical kingdom. Second is Miryam of Migdal, through whom we learn of Jesus's controversial teachings as the two travel through Galilee and Jesus encourages the masses to question the teachings of the powerful few. Through Jesus' mother, Miryam, we learn of his all-too-human vulnerability, the rigor of his conviction, and his unfailing compassion. Finally, it is through Simon of Gergesa, a Syrian shepherd, that we witness the last days of the Jewish preacher as he journeys to Jerusalem. Though Simon is uncertain about how to assess Jesus' legacy, he now sees beauty where before there was none. Covering overlapping portions of Jesus' life, Testament tells the recognizable story of the four Gospels but without recourse to miracle. The naturalism of the novel is based on extensive research and is utterly convincing, and yet there is indisputably something profound and even holy about the man and his teachings. As the novel progresses we begin to see how his story, filtered by different eyes and desires and sub christian books and bibles,contemporary,fiction,literary,literature and fiction,religion and spirituality Christian Books & Bibles, Mariner Books
