Live From Golgotha – Gore Vidal

Imagine what would happen if TV executives discover the secrets of time travel, and decide to go back in time to do a live TV broadcast of the crucifixion…. This is Gore Vidal at his satirical and hilarious best, and a book that anyone with views on organised religion is bound to find gripping. Throwing curve balls into the story like how the marketers are going to deal with the difficult issue of an overweight Jesus on TV, and the ability to communicate by fax machine with St. Paul, makes the story even more complicated and difficult to follow. But my suggestion is just go with it – it’s high entertainment!
