Knopf Canada PP Toronto YR 2008 SN 9780307397645 0307397645 AB Theo Griepenkerl is a modest Canadian academic. When he visits a looted museum in Iraq looking for treasure that he can ship to Toronto, he finds nine papyrus scrolls that have lain hidden for 2000 years. Once translated from Aramaic, these prove to be a fifth Gospel, written by an eye-witness of Jesus Christ's last days. But when Theo decides to share this sensational discovery with the world, he fails to imagine the impact the new Gospel will have on the world. Wickedly provocative, hilarious and shocking by turns, it is a revelatory piece of storytelling.
