Jesus Christs

A. J. Langguth


A. J. Langguth’s first novel is a work of considerable literary and critical success. Since its initial release from Harper & Row in 1968, the book has become a cult classic, garnering stellar reviews from both professional critics and general readers alike. Out of print copies of prior editions sell from $200 up on most rare and antiquarian bookseller websites.



“In probing wit and Zen-like, glancing, even farcical insight, Mr. Langguth provides an utterly original and continuously provoking succession of angles on his ever-shifting subject…. The most rewarding English-language attempt” (to treat Christ in fiction.)
-Reynolds Price


“Langguth’s book is both original in form and exciting in content, beautifully written and philosophically wise. It is wit at its most serious.”
-Willian Gass


“An authentic, original work warm and unafraid in its humor and sometimes haunting insights, naked in its honesty.”
-Malcom Boyd
