This debut collection of sonnets explores the cryptic personality of Jesus of Nazareth. Reimagining pivotal moments in his life story from unlikely perspectives--including those of Joseph, Mary Magdalene, Lazarus, a Pharisee, and even Satan--the poems invite deeper engagement with the Gospel narrative. Jesus emerges from this mosaic-like treatment as a conscientious friend, steely reformer, and inspired poet--as well as an ordinary, troubled man. With lyrical nuance and intensity, Apocrypha brings to life the shadowy past of an iconic figure. Its humane vision speaks equally to believers and atheists, to theologians and lay readers, to students of history and lovers of poetry.
