Christ the Lord: Out of Egypt

Anne Rice built her literary reputation through an elaborately constructed Gothic horror mythology of vampires and witches. But now Rice, who has returned to the Catholic faith of her youth, eschews these dark, unholy topics in favor of the sacred, with this first in a series of retellings of the life of Jesus, inspired by the New Testament, scholarly histories, and the Apocrypha. In this first-person account, seven-year-old Jesus studies with the scholar Philo; moves with his family from Alexandria, Egypt, to Nazareth in Roman-ruled Israel; performs miracles; and confronts Satan, all the while aware that he is different from other children, but not entirely sure why.
From The Publisher:
Having completed the two cycles of legend to which she has devoted her career so far, Anne Rice gives us now her most ambitious and courageous book, a novel about the early years of CHRIST THE LORD, based on the Gospels and on the most respected New Testament scholarship.

The book's power derives from the passion its author brings to the writing and the way in which she summons up the voice, the presence, the words of Jesus who tells the story.

About The Author:
Anne Rice is the author of twenty-six books. She lives in La Jolla, California.
