Synopsis

THE LIARS GOSPEL

From the author of The Power, winner of the Baileys Womens Prize for Fiction 2017A visceral retelling of the events surrounding the life of Jesus Hilary Mantel, Guardian, Books of the YearHe was a traitor, a rabble-leader, a rebel, a liar and a pretender to the throne. We have tried to forget him here.Now, a year after Yehoshuahs death, four people tell their stories.

His mother flashes between grief and rage while trouble brews between her village and the occupying soldiers. Iehuda, who was once Yehoshuahs friend, recalls how he came to lose his faith and find a place among the Romans. Caiaphas, the High Priest at the great Temple in Jerusalem, tries to hold the peace between Rome and Judea.

Bar-Avo, a rebel, strives to bring that peace tumbling down.Viscerally powerful in its depictions of the realities of the period: massacres and riots, animal sacrifice and human betrayal, The Liars Gospel finds echoes of the present in the past. It was a time of political power-play and brutal tyranny and occupation. Young men and women took to the streets to protest. Dictators put them down with iron force. Rumours spread from mouth to mouth. Rebels attacked the greatest Empire the world has ever known.

The Empire gathered its forces to make those rebels pay.And in the midst of all of that, one inconsequential preacher died. And either something miraculous happened, or someone lied.
