L’autrice in questo romanzo affronta un argomento molto delicato, ma lo fa con garbo, disincanto e arguzia. Senza essere polemica, racconta in uno stile solo all’apparenza leggero e scanzonato due storie d’amore parallele che un Prete e una Donna, protagonisti volutamente anonimi, vivono in epoche various. Attraverso varie vicissitudini, talora drammatiche, sia according to l. a. vita stessa dei personaggi sia in keeping with i problemi di fede e di coscienza con cui si sentono confrontati, il loro amore sfocia in due finali differenti e significativi. Ambedue le conclusioni tuttavia vogliono evidenziare come oggi sia ancora possibile credere, avere fede in un Dio d’amore e di misericordia, nonostante una Chiesa non sempre infallibile in quanto, come ogni umana istituzione, ha nell’uomo i suoi limiti.

And few figures higher exemplified this precept than the charismatic Galilean who defied either the imperial professionals and their allies within the Jewish spiritual hierarchy.

And he grapples with the riddle of the way Jesus understood himself, the secret that's on the middle of all next claims approximately his divinity.
Zealot yields a clean point of view on one of many maximum tales ever instructed while it affirms the unconventional and transformative nature of Jesus of Nazareth’s lifestyles and venture. the result's a thought-provoking, elegantly written biography with the heartbeat of a fast paced novel: a singularly excellent portrait of a guy, a time, and the beginning of a religion.
