The KingdomBook - 2017
"A ... fictional account of the early Christians, whose unlikely beliefs conquered the world ... With an idiosyncratic and at times iconoclastic take on the charms and foibles of the Church fathers, Carrère ferries readers through his 'doors' into the biblical narrative. Once inside, he follows the ragtag group of early Christians through the tumultuous days of the faith's founding. Shouldering biblical scholarship like a camcorder, Carrère re-creates the climate of the New Testament with the acumen of a ... storyteller, intertwining his own account of reckoning with the central tenets of the faith with the lives of the first Christians"--Provided by publisher.
