The Last Temptation of Christ by Nikos Kazantzakis

A fantastic and engaging account of the life of Christ, the novel depicts Jesus as a man torn apart and tortured by his divinity and very human desires and urges. Kazantzakis received aggressive criticism from the conservative Christian community when this work was released, but the skill with which he weaves this story cannot be denied.
