The novel presents an original interpretation of the events of the New Testament. some episodes are completely absent or receive less attention, while others, on the contrary, become pivotal from passing. In the alarming atmosphere of the evangelical times, Saramagu tries to find the real reasons for the suffering suffered by Jesus and his father Joseph. The image of Jesus is devoid of heroism. He is a human being with all the problems and doubts, desires and mistakes characteristic of a human being. This is one of the most scandalous books of the 20th century, translated into all European languages. The Church declared it "a libel against the New Testament", but it was for this novel that the author received the Nobel Prize... However obscure the subject, Saramagu immerses the reader in the world of the first years of our era with indescribable skill. The style of the story is special. the living speech of the speaker, a soft, whispering voice that sometimes whispers the words, sometimes hastily uttered like a hasty speech. A wonderful book that when you read it you can taste the blood from the broken teeth, or how the sand of the deserts slips between your fingers, and... the presence of God...
