Book Title: The Last Gospel
Author: David Gibbins
Publisher: Headline Books
An interesting and thought provoking book from David Gibbins.
We all know of the Gospels telling us of the life of Jesus Christ ...Peter, Paul etc all spring to mind. However what if the last Gospel ever written was by Jesus Christ himself ...what if that Gospel was never revealed, who would prosper, who would fear the words of God?
The premise is interesting and is told in a storyline that revolves around the destruction of Pompeii in AD 79 by the eruption of Vesuvius. A great library is buried under the debris and valuable documents lay waiting to be found. What are the actual words of God?
Enjoy this book, although fiction it does actually pose some serious and interesting reflections about the role of organised religion in the modern day.
...keep reading and enjoy. Ivor Kindle.
