BOY OF NAZARETH by Marian Keith


Email this review


A modernized retelling of one small segment in the life of Jesus, as a boy in Nazareth- the year leading up to the Passover visit to the Temple in Jerusalem, which marked the end of one phase, the start of another in his life. Although one can level no criticism on the score of reverence, scholars will take issue with the liberties taken with the Gospel and free interpretation of material from the Apocrypha. One thing however is achieved- the idea of Jesus as a boy like- and yet unlike- other boys, stresses his aspect as Son of Man, and shows him as integral to a happy family life.
