The Last Temptation of Christ - Nikos Kazantzakis A sure way to get me to read a book is to ban it. Kazantzakis' Last Temptation of Christ is beautiful. By making Christ have doubts about dying on the cross, by tempting him with a regular family life and sexual attraction, Kazantzakis brings us a very human Jesus. His Jesus is less comic book hero than a doubting, complex person that could actually inspire a movement of radical hospitality and compassion.

I began calling Kazantzakis my favorite author back in my early 20s. He hasn't moved a bit in the 20 years since. Read anything by Kazantzakis. His passion will overwhelm you.
