    [E–book] The Fire Gospel This was a fun if slight read and my introduction to both Michael Faber and the Canongate Myths series The myth it reinterprets is that of Prometheus who suffered the daily punishment of having his liver torn out by an eagle for having given fire to humanity I'm sure you can excavate mythic strands of meaning if you're so inclined but my experience of this novella was pretty superficial and that was enough to enjoy my br

    [E–book] The Fire Gospel Interesting premise about a venal flawed man who stumbles across a series of perfectly preserved scrolls from Jesus' time including an eyewitness account of Judas' betrayal and Christ's crucifixion that completely contradict the existing gospels But the execution is brief and minor skipping across a lot of key connective material to draw some elaborate but disjointed sketches about the books' reception and i

Very disappointed in this book it had immense potential for a scathing commentary on current media marketing and religious lassitude Unfortunately the characters were rather pat loser breaking up with his girlfriend nutty Christians and there was little else to offer The plot moves uickly but takes some rather unbelievable jumps Also the translations offered by the main character of the Book of Malchus simply don t read well The problem is if Faber intended this as a wry commentary on translation it doesn t come across as such Rather it simply comes across as another somewhat hollow portion of text Worth reading only for the good ideas inside and wondering who maybe you could have done better

The Fire Gospel attests to Faber s intelligence as a writer of fiction The story hinges on the discovery of a set of scrolls in a looted museum in Ira which contained the 5th gospel written by a disciple of Jesus named Malchus On many layers the novel reads like a parody of the Bible The protagonist a linguist and academician is called Theo Greek for God who catapulted to overnight fame when he translated the papyrus scrolls from Aramaic Interestingly as the story itself is a startling revelation that shook the bedrock of Christian and Arabic faiths the novel begins fittingly and ironically enough with John of Patmos words of warning against adding to the prophecy of this Book Chapter titles in the novel take on names of Biblical books Genesis Exodus Judges Acts Revelations and Lamentations and allude to Paul s prison experience in the chapter entitled And His Chains Fell Off From His Hands where Theo Griepenkerl was bound by his abductors What moved me most was Faber s plausible depiction of the crucifixion scene on Golgotha the palpable humanity ultimate humiliation and complete loss of dignity of one who was hung on the cross Faber captured powerfully the participation of the crowd that witnessed the passion of Christ All I can say is that there is a joy in seeing a difficult thing achievedWatching their soldiers exertion one forgets the evil of the enterprise and wishes only to add one s strength to the labor The soldiers groan their faces turn red the laden cross dips back towards the earth and there is many a man in the crowd who leans his shoulder forward as it were to share the burden And many a women also The incendiary devastation wrought by the 5th gospel consumed the world and Theo himself Maybe I m over reading it but I thought it fascinating that in the Epilogue Faber seems to take a step back and laugh at himself when he concludes We try our best to tell a story so that others might be led towards Jesus but Jesus is not a story He is the end of all stories Good book
