An extraordinary and provocative exploration of one of history’s great unsolved mysteries:
The Gospels provide no direct answers and both the life of Jesus as it has been recorded for us and the teachings and activities of the Apostles are surrounded by baffling contradictions and inconsistencies.—Salibi here invites the reader to join him on a voyage of historical discovery to determine the true identity of the founder of Christianity.
Where did Jesus really come from?
Why do the Gospels pass over the greater part of his life?
What of the principle founders of the Christian Church, St Peter and St Paul? What did Paul discover in Arabia?
No reader can fail to be carried along by the tantalising search for clues as Salibi attempts to unravel history’s best-kept secret the true identity of Jesus.
Kamal Salibi is a leading historian of the Middle East. As a practising Christian, he has a keen interest in Biblical studies and is the author of the highly acclaimed history of Lebanon, A House of Many Mansions and The Modern History of Jordan (both I.B.Tauris)
