  1. says:

    While this novel contains the historical rather than theological Jesus as a character, it is really the story of his fictional wife, Ana It is widely believed that during the lost years of Jesus he worked as carpenter in Sepphoris rather than Nazareth and Ana meets Jesus during this time The first part of the novel is a bit slow to start but nicely introduces Ana as a feminist with an aching need to read and most importantly to write Jesus and An

    I am Ana I was the wife of Jesus of Nazareth I am a voice I loved The Invention Of Wings and I will admit to being a lil skeptical about the subject of this novel being about Jesus I m so glad I didn t let that deter me from giving this a chance I was expecting biblical Jesus, however, Kidd came at this novel from a totally human perspective Through his wife s voice Regardless of whether you agree or disagree with the concept of Jesus having a wife


  3. says:

    For many Christians, it has been believed that Jesus was an unmarried man who was crucified and buried and was the son of God Our knowledge of his life comes to us through the bible but there were many years that were unaccounted for in his thirty three years on earth What if in those years, Jesus did indeed marry For some this might be a difficult concept and yet Sue Monk Kidd decided to take it on and wrote an interesting tale of just that possibilit

    I was a little skeptical going into this book, mainly because I consider myself a fairly devout Christian While I am extremely open to interpretations and opposing beliefs, I thought this book would offend rather than inspire I am so glad that I ignored my reservations and finished the book This was definitely one of the most delicately explored historical fiction books I have ever read Sue Monk Kidd explains herself that, while she was extremely careful

    4.5 stars A man s holy of holies contains God s laws, but inside a woman s there are only longings Young Ana has been raised in a wealthy family in Sepphoris her father, Matthias, is the head scribe to the ruler of Galilee, Herod Antipas Her mother, a beauty from a poor family, is cold and calculating Her adopted brother, Judas, fueled by his hatred of Rome for the loss of his parents, has left home to become part of a revolt to overthrow their power

    If you have been waiting for a book like THE RED TENT for the past 20 years this is it Ana is Jesus wife and a force in her own right Monk does not come across sensational in her writing about a fictional marriage for Jesus but rather goes into great historical detail of the time and what it would be like to be a woman Loved this book.


  7. says:

    I was both curious about this captivating story, and curious if the read would be as good as hoped with such a momentous premise it does Well researched and easy to enjoy the narrative voice with fully realized, provocative characters become an immersive human story plus it has a killer first line I am Ana I was the wife of Jesus Ana s voice is strong, assured, and intoxicating filled with rich, evocative power, as compelling as her previous titles, yet even lite


  8. says:

    Imagine that Jesus had a wife Not Mary Magdalene as proposed in The DaVinci Code and any other number of books ranging from fictional to scholarly Imagine that Jesus, in the years between reaching manhood and beginning his public role as prophet and visionary, when he lived as an ordinary Jewish man, fulfilling the ordinary expectations regarding family life, had a wife Who would that woman have been, the one who formed a lifelong bond with a man who would become inc

    I am of two minds about this book It is divided into sections based on divisions in the character s life and her location The first one, in which she is a young woman teens , I found pretty dismal The language felt stilted, although that was probably an attempt to give a historical feel However, to people living in any time, their language is natural and this device felt like artifice and a barrier to embracing the narrator s reality Most characters were introduced with

    I read this in a couple cozy sittings over the holidays it struck me as I read it that I hadn t read a book like this in a long time a true, traditional, storytelling experience, this book is mythic and intimate, joyful and painful it really reads like an instant classic Unnlike a lot of books I read that feel half formed or not fully cooked this book felt like it just exists not that it was written or attached to any author it stands totally on its own and that is a rare
