The Last Temptation of Christ
Hailed as a masterpiece by critics worldwide, The Last Temptation of Christ is a monumental reinterpretation of the Gospels by one of the giants of modern literature. Nikos Kazantzakis, renowned author of Zorba the Greek, brilliantly fleshes out the story of Christ's passion, giving it a dynamic spiritual freshness. Kazantzakis's Jesus is gloriously divine, yet earthy and human, as he travels among peasants and is tempted by their comfortable life. Provocatively illuminating every dimension of the Gospels, The Last Temptation of Christ is an exhilirating modern classic.
