This was one of those books that I picked up and started reading, and finished so quickly that I never got around to putting it on my current reading list, so it goes straight to completed. It’s a quick, fun read. Nothing particularly deep or shocking; honestly, you’d have to be a pretty thin-skinned Christian to get all bothered by this.
The book is essentially a speculation on the question of just what Jesus was up to between the ages of 12 and 27, when all the gospels are silent about his life. Moore’s answer in short: he went in search of the three magi and learned about Confucianism and Taoism, Buddhism, and Hinduism and Tantrism (well, the Tantrism more Biff than Jesus) before returning to begin his ministry.
