    Harold Bloom writes of Saramago’s The Gospel According to Jesus Christ: “…it is an awesome work, imaginatively superior to any other life of Jesus, including the four canonical Gospels.” If you haven’t read Saramago, I would strongly recommend picking up one of his novels–grab as many as you can carry and hole up in a cozy spot for three days and three nights!
