"A sweeping fictional account of the early Christians, whose unlikely beliefs conquered the world. Gripped by the tale of a Messiah whose blood we drink and body we eat, the genre-defying author Emmanuel Carrère revisits the story of the early Church in his latest work. With an idiosyncratic and at times iconoclastic take on the charms and foibles of the Church fathers, Carrère ferries readers through his "doors" into the biblical narrative. Once inside, he follows the ragtag group of early Christians through the tumultuous days of the faith's founding. Shouldering biblical scholarship like a camcorder, Carrère re-creates the climate of the New Testament with the acumen of a seasoned storyteller, intertwining his own account of reckoning with the central tenets of the faith with the lives of the first Christians. Carrère puts himself in the shoes of Saint Paul and above all Saint Luke, charting Luke's encounter with the marginal Jewish sect that eventually became Christianity, and retracing his investigation of its founder, an obscure religious freak who died under notorious circumstances. Boldly blending scholarship with speculation, memoir with journalistic muckraking, Carrère sets out on a headlong chase through the latter part of the Bible, drawing out protagonists who believed they were caught up in the most important events of their time. An expansive and clever meditation on belief, The Kingdom chronicles the advent of a religion, and the ongoing quest to find a place within it."--… (mere)

About halfway through i lost interest. I think this would only be controversial to Literal Christians, Meister Eckhardt fans and people who don't like reading descriptions of disgusting hardcore pornography. It's basically his story and he isn't really as interesting as he thinks. The other thing is like all books these days it seems to be written for young adults. ( )

I read this too long ago to review properly; what I mostly remember, at this remove, is that Carrere seems like the sort of person I'd run away from at a bar--unable, or unwilling, to see that there's no difference between his past, self-satisfied Catholicism, and his present, self-satisfied, well, bourgeoisdom. I was expecting to really like the thing, since I'm interested in the bible, and in conversion stories, and in world-weary scepticism, but I suspect that you'd just have to be much, much more something to really pull it off, and Carrere doesn't seem interested in being anything much, other than unreflectingly rich and successful.

Basically, if someone writes about their holiday home(s) in their fiction, I no longer care about what else they write. My knee is jerking. ( )
