King Jesus is one of the most controversial historical novels of all time. Robert Graves has summoned his superb narrative powers, his painstaking scholarship, his wit and unsurpassed ability to re-create the past, to produce a magnificent portrayal of the life of Christ on earth, with all its tragedy and poverty.

Robert Ranke Graves (1895-1985) was a British poet, novelist, and critic. He is best known for the historical novel I, Claudius and the critical study of myth and poetry The White Goddess.
"My solution to the problem of Jesus's nativity implies a rejection of tke mystical Virgin Birth doctrine, which no longer has the same force in religious polemics as it had in Justin's day; to the mass of people nowadays the choice is between a Jesus bom in the ordinary course ofnature and one as mythical as Perseus and Prometheus."--From the Author's Commentary
"This is not reading for the easily shocked; it definitely presents Jesus as a sage and a poet, if not divine. It moves, as does all Mr. Graves' writing, at a brilliant fast pace, and with a tremendous style."--Kikus Reviews
"Mr. Graves is a poet; both the knowledge of a scholar and the imagination of a poet are brought to bear upon Jesus as child, boy, and man. The book is a bold speculative adventure."--Harold Brighouse, Manchester Guardian
