From a #1 New York Times ́bestselling author: The story of Judas Iscariot and the stunning betrayal that changed the course of history. One of the great dramas of the biblical era is brought to thrilling new life in this epic novel told from the unique perspective of Judas himself. This is the story of Judas the myth, condemned by Dante to the most terrifying circle of Hell; Judas the man, the son of wealth and power who fought to suppress the lusts of the flesh and the sin of pride, and became one of the twelve original disciples of Jesus Christ; and Judas the apostle, victim of a diabolical lie, historýs arch traitor, who sold his Lord for thirty pieces of silver, and sealed his fate with a kiss. From Judaśs years as the young rebel of an affluent family undone by his own idealism through his victimization by Pontius Pilate to the crucifixion and Christ́s resurrection, I, Judas ́read[s] like a modern novel of intrigue and thrillś (Chattanooga Times). The final entry, following Dear and Glorious Physician and Great Lion of God, in a trilogy celebrating key historical figures of the Bible, it is one of the most powerful and revelatory works of religious fiction ever published.
