"A.N. Wilson writes like an angel" ( New Statesman and Society)
"Those exceptional talents displayed in his biographies are combined with those equally splendid gifts of imaginative writing which characterise his novels" ( Literary Review)
"Many aspects of Wilson's book will anger or amuse believing Christians and serious New Testament scholars... Anybody who knows the Gospels at all should find their understanding much challenged and enriched by this book" ( Guardian)
"He writes beautifully... I found myself carried along on page after page" (William Westwood, Bishop of Peterborough Mail on Sunday)
"A.N. Wilson's Jesus is a very good book indeed... His novelist's instinct is alert to the little details which bring Jesus to life...[it is] an excellent read and sends you scurrying back to buy the Gospels" ( Daily Telegraph)
'A masterly work of demystifying iconoclasm.' Patrick Skene Catling, Spectator
