I had no idea what this book was about beyond its reputation as a quasi-science fiction classic, and it's not that often that a story completely blows my mind but holy hell! Or Jesus Christ! as it were.
This book is not for everybody, not by a long shot. It's probably not even for most people. But as someone long fascinated by religions and their origins, mythology, alternative histories and anything about time travel, this book was well within my wheelhouse.
It's short, blasphemous, sexually shocking, neurotic, at times unlikable and entirely unique.
The only other novel I can think of that has Christianity so encoded in its DNA is Walter W. Miller's A Canticle for Leibowitz, so if you've read that you might want to try this. And if you end up like both novels and haven't go rent Jesus Christ Superstar, another great take on the Christ story.
Behold the Man gets 5 stars from this Agnostic but your milage my vary. A lot.
