Publisher's Description

Having completed the two cycles of legend to which she has devoted her career so far, Anne Rice gives us now her most thoughtful and powerful book, a novel about the childhood of Christ the Lord based on the gospels and on the most respected New Testament scholarship.

The book’s power derives from the passion its author brings to the writing, and the way in which she summons up the voice, the presence, the words of the young Jesus who tells the story.


From the Hardcover edition.

Editorial Reviews

Praise for Christ the Lord

“Riveting. . . . Rice's book is a triumph of tone -- her prose lean, lyrical, vivid -- and character. As he ponders his staggering responsibility, the boy is fully believable -- and yet there's something in his supernatural empathy and blazing intelligence that conveys the wondrousness of a boy like no other. . . . With this novel, she has indeed found a convincing version of him; this is fiction that transcends story and instead qualifies as an act of faith. Joins Nikos Kazantzakis's The Last Temptation of Christ and Endo's A Life of Jesus as one of the bolder re-tellings.”
Kirkus Reviews (starred)


Praise for Blood Canticle

“When Anne Rice releases a new book in The Vampire Chronicles series, cheers from her huge fan base can be heard everywhere.”

    For an acclaimed author, the research waspoor. Personal liberties were perhaps ofinterest, but without checking who knows. For example: without checking, it's commonknowledge that the Balsam tree is distributedthroughout the world--even nations adjoiningand Palestine.

    I found this fictional version of Jesus' early years to be unbelievable. I don't believe that Joseph was married once before Mary, and I don't believe that he had children with another woman either. This book may have been written with help from scholars that Anne respected, but I do not agree with her sources (whoever they may have been). I believe that Jesus is wholly God, and His time on this earth remained holy and pure and sinless. There were too many liberties taken in this version of His early years.

    This book is so descriptive, it seems as tho one is almost there..Although I have never been in the Holy Land, I can picture it..There is nothing written about the childhood of Jesus and now Anne has done this and we are privileged to read about it!! I highly recommend this to people of all ages and genders..I am on the second book and hope she finishes the 3rd soon..

    A most interesting fictional account of a pre-adolescent Christ, written as first person, however, the "story" is apparently based on well researched historical facts. While I was not able to smell the smells of the Old Testament days, I was easily able to see much of the "landscape" while reading Out of Egypt. I appreciated Anne's written effort to think, feel, question & wonder like a young Jesus. I very much enjoyed this book's point of view.
