    1. I have wanted to read this book evver since I heard about it. I hadn't read any of Anne Rice's prior stuff, but on a professional level (I'm a Lutheran pastor) and just on a level of personal interest I thought I'd give it a try. The very concept of this novel--writing a fictional book about Jesus at age seven, in the first person, from a perspective that takes New Testament and Apocryphal writings seriously--is, needless to say, hugely ambitious. And when your main character is someone who 2 bi [...]

    2. Why is it that the first-person books set in ancient times invariably have a hyper-simple, naive narrative style? This is supposed to be Jesus telling his own story, not as a child but as a man (there are some nods to "when I was a child, I spoke as a child" in the narrative, just in case you didn't catch on that this is JESUS THE CHRIST narrating, even though I believe it was Paul who was supposed to have written those words), and I'm just not buying that Jesus was Forrest Gump with a better co [...]

    3. I expected controversy from Anne Rice, but I have to say that she handled the subject of Jesus' boyhood with dignity and reverence. The idea of his learning and growing was plausibly put. I especially liked the descriptions of the lighthouse at Alexandria and the riots at the Great Temple in Jerusalem. It was a well researched account of Jewish life. I liked okay, but I liked it more after I read the author's notes at the end depicting briefly her coming back to the (Catholic) church and God and [...]

    4. Ten best-selling books included in her The Vampire Chronicles (1976-2003). Three erotic books about Sleeping Beauty (1983-1985). A dozen of other gothic works most of them landing in New York Times Bestsellers lists. Then her atheist husband for 41 years died from brain tumor in 2002. Before he died, he married her at a Catholic Church as she was a devout Catholic before their marriage. The death shook her up. For two years, she devoted her time reading the Holy Gospel and all its historical ref [...]

    5. What do you do when you're told there are things you're not supposed to ask about, and you have to know about them? You wonder, and keep an eye open for someone to drop a hint they didn't mean to drop, or did. What do you do when you're confronted with what your family and nation have been anticipating for years and generations and centuries and forever? If you believe in angels, what do you do when an angel comes to you? Anne Rice takes up these questions in looking at the childhood of Jesus in [...]

    6. I realise that authors go through many stages of their careers, exploring different facets of their personality, trying different roles. I am a great fan of Anne's work. I have attended dozens of her events in New Orleans, and own numerous signed copies and first editions. I love (with the exception of Queen of the Damned) the Vampire Chronicles, I enjoyed The Witching Hour, I owned the Beauty Triology when you still had to ask for it quietly in kink shops on the lower East side. I had read the [...]

    7. This is the only Anne Rice book I've ever read. I've tried reading others but they didn't hold my interest -- so I'm open to suggestions about that. Anne Rice is definitely an interesting person with an uncommon point of view but I tried not to think about that while reading this book because the book itself is pretty amazing. I don't see this as a religious book at all just because millions of people consider the main character to be their saviour. There are a lot of other characters in a lot o [...]

    8. I ADORED THIS BOOK! AND I AM NOT CHRISTIAN!!!sorry but I felt those disclaimers needed highlighting before I begin ranting about this book. I couldn't put it down I was so absorbed by it I walked into a dozen crosswalks,thankfully only getting hit once, and it was gently. READ THIS BOOK!

    9. I enjoyed this book and learned a lot from it! I've never read Anne Rice, and from the paragraph or two I've glanced at of other books, I wouldn't recommend them. But this one, while it has some serious drawbacks, also has some great strengths.It's always risky to attempt to portray Jesus, let alone in a first-person narrative. I think Anne Rice does this surprisingly well, although I think the inner life of Jesus would actually be much richer and fairly different than she portrays. In this sens [...]

    10. I can only remember reading one Anne Rice novel before and I know I liked it - I think it was the one about the Mayfair Witches.This book is definitely a far cry from that. Rice is now a born-again Catholic and has written an interesting novel from the perspective of Jesus as a 7 year old boy. The language and style of prose is so spare, that sometimes I wanted more from it. Not as much as George Eliot or Tolkien would give - but not as spartan as Ernest Hemingway either! Anyway, that being said [...]

    11. This is the first of Ann Rice's books I have read. It is also the first of her books written since her return to her childhood Catholic faith following years of doubt. She has a beautiful writers voice, that makes one feel as though one is there with young Jesus and his family. She paints the biblical scenery eloquently evoking the senses. She did a great amount of research to create an accurate history and included some material from the legends about Christ's childhood.*See the following inter [...]

    12. I have been an Anne Rice fan for years, especially the Vampire Chronicles. My favorite of that series, Memnoch The Devil, completely opened my eyes to the realization of the truth in every side of the story, and every story having infinite sides. It was the story of the Beginning, good and evil, god and the devil, the crucifixion of Jesus Christ. Told from Memnoch himself to Lestat, beloved vampire. So it was with great surprise and interest that I discovered that Anne Rice has taken the burden [...]

    13. I was so excited to read this book because this is the one Ann Rice wrote as a Christian. I love her vampire novels, of course, and I have always been a fan. So to hear that she had some kind of dramatic conversion and had written a book about Jesus made me drool. So, I finally started to read it last night. The book jacket says that "Christ the Lord is based on the gospels and on the most repected New Testament scholarship." With heart pounding I began to read (insert sound of a defalting ballo [...]

    14. My reaction to this book can be summed up with the expression "meh." I picked it up for 50 cents at a garage sale; I had heard about it and was intrigued, having read some of Anne Rice's vampire books. I can tell that she did amazing in-depth research to write this, and she really brings alive the lifestyle, customs, and culture of Jews in Nazareth and Jerusalem at the time, which was interesting--so many Christians forget how devout a Jew Jesus was. But I don't know something about the narrator [...]

    15. This book sucked. Sorry. I tried to like it. It's nothing like the passionate beauty that I read Anne Rice for. She converted back to Catholicism after her husband died, and she's trying to "repent" for all the things she's been writing all these years. I think that's a shame on many levels.Why, Anne Rice, why? You used to be so fantastic. This book is nothing like her. I felt kind of betrayed by it. The prose is short, terse, sparse. The head of Christ is far less compelling than Lestat or Mari [...]

    16. I wanted to like this.It's a story of Jesus based on (mostly) Catholic and Orthodox traditions with some Biblical history woven in. The idea is nice, but it reminds me of the Red Tent. It just is awkward because someone entirely unconnected to the story is telling it and making up what they think happened. I just don't believe that this type of story telling works with certain characters

    17. I have to admit that I opened this book with some trepidation. I can never know what to expect from Anne Rice. When the “Queen” of vampire stories is on her game, she produces a fabulous book such as Interview With A Vampire or Tale of the Body Thief. When she’s off, she’s very capable of writing a convoluted time-waster like Memnoch the Devil. I was also afraid that Rice might use a book about Jesus as an opportunity to make some “way out there” artistic point. My fears were apparen [...]

    18. Fascinating exploration of the childhood of Jesus. Of course, it is not "true," nor is it Biblical. But it is not a book about vampires either. This is Anne Rice following her adult return to the faith of her childhood. The level of historical research that went into this engaging novel is obvious. The insights based on the history of Israel and Egypt at the time are valuable. But the best thing is the first-person narration from a very charming boy Jesus, trying to figure out who he is and why [...]

    19. This was a great novel for putting the daily life of Christ into perspective and creating a picture of what Christ may have been like as a young child. I questioned Rice's ability and knowledge when I first learned that she would be publishing books on the life of Christ, but was instantly drawn into the story and lives of the characters. In reading Rice's author's notes at the end, I realized just how much research and time she had invested into this endeavor. The story is believeable and bring [...]

    20. I have had this book on my shelf for years, wanting to read Rice's Called out of Darkness before I read this, and not wanting to be teaching on any of the Gospels at the same time. I have to admit I was worried that her 'story' might cloud my distinction between scripture and fiction.I am happy to say, it did not.Rice does a wonderful job of sticking to a time period that we know nothing of in Jesus' life (except for some references to the non-Canonical gospels written about Jesus). She is histo [...]

    21. If only an angel had appeared to me and warned me of this book. I understand that "Christ the Lord" is narrated by the child Jesus, but this book is so simple I felt like I was reading a children's book. The pace is so slow it felt like I was wandering the desert for forty days.It is a shame Rice devoted an entire book to something that could have been covered in a chapter or two. Her attention to mundane details were tiresome, not revealing. The great miracle here is not within the pages. It is [...]

    22. I hadn't realized this was the book "Son of God" was based on. I love that movie as well.Mostly I just love how respectful Rice was of her subject matter. Were there things I disagreed with? Of course. But I really enjoyed how much her thoughts made me think my own thoughts. The idea of imagining those lost years where we know so little of Jesus' life is a huge task. I learned so much about the culture and the historical context of politics and society. And it wasn't lame! That is my #1 grievanc [...]

    23. This is the first Anne Rice book I've ever read, so I can't tell you if it's better than or worse than her other bestsellers. I can tell you I couldn't put it down. As a Protestant, I had to get over the fact that Anne writers Mary as a perpetual virgin, Jesus' brother James as his half-brother (Joseph's son from a previous marriage), and the rest of the people the bible calls Jesus' brothers and sisters as his cousins. I got over it.The way she brings to life the world in which Christ would've [...]

    24. Anne Rice performs here a daunting if not audacious task in narrating this account from the mind and tongue of the 7-year-old Jesus Christ. Controversial, yes, but also reverent and, well, forever relevant.This is quite the departure for the former queen of vampire lit, and apparently she's to continue in her historical fiction works about the Christ. Know this: She's for real. A lengthy author's note at the back of the book informs the reader that Rice herself has done quite the research into J [...]

    25. Since Anne Rice converted to Christianity she has been divining into study about who the Lord really is. Book after book, and scholar after scholar she puts together a wonderful historical fiction of how our Lord could have grown up. It depicts what the temple in Jerusalem would have looked like while under Roman control, and how that impacts Jesus and his family. Rice does take the standpoint that Jesus did not fully understand that he was God until he was about age 9, a view I don't completely [...]

    26. This story, written in the first person of 7 year old Jesus, is a fictional account of the family's return from Egypt to Nazareth. It is fascinating in its attention to detail, whether that detail is geographical, archeological, historical or dealing with the customs and morals of the First Century.The time frame is a year in the life of the boy Jesus, who is struggling to understand and piece together the secrets surrounding his birth, the unexplainable events that occur in his presence, and th [...]

    27. I loved this book. I was kind of wary about reading something that tries to present what is going on in Jesus' head, but it was amazing.Anne Rice always does her research, and it really shows in this book. I see some other readers didn't like the style of writing (it's kind of shorter and choppier than her usual style) but I think it really brought to life the thoughts of a 7-9 year old child as he grows into his understanding of who he is.I absolutely loved it, and what I loved even more was th [...]

    28. I think that this book was probably overlooked by many religious based people because of her other works about witches and vampires.Their loss.Probably the best what if religious book that I have ever read.She took great pains to note everywhere that she found her evidence.After having been raised Catholic,Attending Catholic scools from first through college,I found it to be exciting,interesting and based on a lot of the teachings of the Church.This book was referred to me by my cousin who is a [...]

    29. Having never read Anne Rice before I entered the book with no expectations. I enjoyed reading the fictionalized story of Jesus's childhood and the way Biblical historical facts were brought so seamlessly into the story. I had never thought of how it would have been to be Jesus the child, not understanding all that was happening and yet having an understanding beyond his years. The historical research that went into this book is impressive and the story of course is simply one of the greatest eve [...]

    30. I've never read any of Anne Rice's other work (not into vampires and werewolves), but I loved this book. She did a masterful job of catching the world of Jesus' lifetime and imagining how the child Jesus might first have come to understand his own unique nature and mission. The many years of research she did as background for this novel really paid off.Ordinarily I avoid novelizations of the life of Christ, because they inevitably disappoint, but this one far exceeded my expectations.
