    One thought on “The Body”

    1. This book was published in 1983 and is probably a very early example of the archaeology suspense genre that is so popular today.It is an extremely interesting premise Is the body found in a Jerusalem tomb that of the unrisen Jesus Jim Folan, former Marine who worked for the CIA and now a Jesuit priest, is sent by the Vatican to discover the story of the body He works with a Jewish archaeologist who found the body They begin an affair in the months during which Jim is investigating.Jim comes to b [...]

    2. FascinatingThis book is perfect for the Christmas season, when I read it It examines the basic premise of Christianity that Jesus rose from the dead, and what would happen to two thousand years of faith if that were demonstrably untrue Along the way it discusses the bible, Judaism, Islam, and the politics of the Middle East Jim Folan, S.J is a real man who became a priest, not a construct, but a real man who any of us might know His spiritual and emotional journey through the book is as good as [...]

    3. It was interesting to read about the different religions in Jerusalem and to think about all the archaeologists go through when finding artifacts and bones I didn t like the idea that it was Jesus body but it all turned out ok in the end

    4. Made a person think, about religion but did not convince me of anything new Took a long time to get thru this book.

    5. What I like so much about this book is that it takes on a simiilar them that Dan Browne s books take Angels and Demons and The Da Vinci Code and yet was written at least 10 years earlier.

    6. As you can see from the cover, the book is about the search of Christ s body A wonderful book that really makes you think They ve filmed this at some point, although I missed the movie.

    7. Even though this was written over 30 years ago many of the same tensions still exist in Israel and the Middle East A body is discovered in a tomb beneath the streets of Jerusalem The body had been crucified and bore the same wounds as Jesus Is this His body Lots of interesting facts about history, archaeology, and religion Overall, I found the book to be tragic, sad, and ironic Still worth reading.

    8. Loved the story and the characters Sapir was a true master of character building , and the religious implications were really thought provoking I wasn t really satisfied with the ending, however view spoiler Partly, because I simply cannot believe that after what they ve been through, after all the lies and machinations they ve witnessed, Jim and Sharon can simply accept that the other one is dead Partly, because I feel tricked as far as the body is concerned I can understand what the reason beh [...]

    9. Very intriguing and captivating It includes many of the elements that I like most in a book espionage, religion, Israel and science I would have given it 5 stars, except the ending seemed too abrupt and contrived.
