Description

The second book in Anne Rice’s hugely ambitious and masterful life of Christ.
 
It’s a winter of no rain, endless dust, and talk of trouble in Judea.  All who know and love Jesus find themselves waiting for some sign of the path he will eventually take.  After his baptism, he is at last ready to confront his destiny. At the wedding at Cana, he takes water and transforms it into red wine.  Thus, he’s recognized as the anointed one and called by God the Father to begin a ministry that will transform an unsuspecting world.
