Item description for A Personal Jesus by Upton Sinclair...

A "Personal Jesus" takes the life of Jesus as Upton Sinclair imagines him to be. Sinclair breaks up this novel into 3 sections- youth, mission and spirit. Again, he delves into religon and leaves his usual path of politics - but are not religions - Christianity, Judism and Islam political? A good question throughout history and especially in our modern times. As Sinclair says in the preface "the story of Jesus cannot be told without controversy, for controversy is the very essence of it". As a reviewer said, "Sinclair was a giant and this novel comes close to who Jesus was as a person than any scholarly account. And this is the magic of Sinclair". Religous believers and political activist should read this novel to get a glimpse of where Sinclair is coming from. A Collector's Edition.

Sinclair's breakthrough came in 1906 with the publication of The Jungle, a scathing indictment of the Chicago meat-packing industry.

Reviews - What do customers think about A Personal Jesus?

Excellent story telling  Jun 21, 2007
Upton Sinclair was a giant. For more than 50 years his works of fiction and "faction" covered the American landscape, from The Jungle to Oil to Boston etc. In A Personal Jesus Sinclair takes his enormous talents and applies them to the story of Jesus. This is Sinclair's novel about the life of Jesus as he imagines him to be. It is not an historical or a scholarly account, and students of biblical studies will find some notable errors herein.

There is a lot of interesting material here about the Sleb and the Essenes, and it's Sinclair's thesis that Jesus was a member of both. The book is a bit dated with regard to some of the Essene material, since it was written in 1952. But it may come closer to who Jesus was as a person than any scholarly account. And that is Sinclair's magic.
