La primera tercera parte empieza bien.
Alfaguara- Fiction – pages. God goes on for about half a dozen pages naming martyrs and the ways in which they died for the gospel and then mentions the Crusades and the Inquisition. This book is smart, don’t get seyun wrong. I felt it tiring to read, long, and pointless. User Review – Flag as inappropriate Excelente libro, muy humanista, pocos son los que realamente han pensado que Jesucristo tenia necesidades como un ser terrenal comun, me encanto.

I was hoping for a smart Jesus, not for one adrift and confused. Perhaps that makes me a lazy reader. I’m done with Jesus stories. I know that everybody loves Saramago.
