Revelation Led Rice to Pen Jesus Novel

URL: http://www.jewishjournal.com/arts/article/revelation_led_rice_to_pen_jesus_novel_20051125

Although Rice's hero is meant to be every inch the Jesus of the Gospels (she says she's proselytizing), she views her book as a kind of antidote to Mel Gibson's "The Passion of the Christ." She appreciated Gibson's film for its felicity to Catholic doctrine but disliked its portrayal of Jews.
