The Bastard

(2012)
A Secret Never Told
A novel by

 
 
The Bastard is a thoroughly researched, action-driven, dark epic about the missing decades in the life of Jesus. The novel realistically portrays a human Jesus as an outcast character caught in a clash of cultures during an age of brutality and violence. In the novel, Jesus escapes his bullied childhood in Nazareth by becoming a stable boy who travels with the Roman cavalry to Germania. He rises to become a mounted medicus and, finally, a gladiator, before rejecting violence and returning to Judea as a healer. The love between Jesus and Mary Magdalene is central to this tale of awakening and redemption through the terrible path of hardship and bloodshed. The narrative illuminates the humanist theme of morality without mythology.
