Described in the 1930s as "the most controversial novel of our time", Hosanna explores the hypothesis of what might have happened if Jesus had consented to be made King of the Jews. In this version of one of the world's best-known stories, Jesus turns away from spiritual emancipation and uses his powers for military and political purposes as he leads the Jews to drive the Romans from the land. Based on written sources attesting to a historical figure, Jesus, who was a minor Jewish nationalist leader, Bernard Newman shows the supposed Son of God in a way he has rarely been seen before.
