Still one of Gibrans most well-loved works over 70 years after its original publication, Jesus the Son of Man is a striking fictional portrait of Christ as seen through the eyes of his contemporaries. Depicting a variety of famous figures, from Mary Magdalen to Pontius Pilate, Gibrans spellbinding collection of narratives combines historical authority with the supreme eloquence that his admirers hold so dear. Fully conscious of the social, political, and religious realities of Palestine and Rome at the time, and at home with the local traditions and language, Gibran effortlessly evokes the spellbinding power of Christs presence upon his associates. Presented in an attractive gift format and accompanied by Gibrans original artwork, this new edition allows Gibrans inspirational account of Christ to be read once more.
