Book Description Victor Gollancz Ltd., London, 1968. Purple Cloth. Book Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. First Edition. 5 1/2" x 8". First (1968) edition of The Gospel According to Judas by Philip Leon. Blurb follows: "Judas remains one of the great enigmas - of history, of theology, of psychology. What is the significance of his "betrayal" of Jesus? The question has been often asked, often answered. And it remains a burning question: in human terms, and in terms of the relationship between Judaism and the world. In this incandescent book Philip Leon offers remarkable new insights into the problem. The book is primarily a novel, but a novel of thought - a kind of which we have too few in this country as compared with, say, France, Germany, Italy, or nineteenth-century Russia. Its pattern is, broadly, autobiographical, and it consists largely of reflections by Judas on his past life. But on a life which reached its climax nearly two thousand years ago. He lives on today, a kind of Wandering Jew, who may turn up on a bus in Oxford or on a sight-seeing tour in the new Israel, and who brings our contemporary questionings into his own. Judas on Judas! But, as he says, "which Judas upon which? There are thousands of Judases." And we see many of these Judases in his encounters with Jesus, Pilate, Caiaphas, Mary Magdalene. There are scenes of high drama and farce, which reveal Philip Leon, an Emeritus Professor of the University of Leicester, as a historical novelist of considerable stature. The episodes of the Gospel period, some imaginary, some based on Gospel stories, are most sensitively written, and with a deal of humour. Judas emerges as a sincere, passionately religious, agonisingly confused character. But beyond this, he also emerges as representing the chosen people: but chosen for what? The last part of the book is a reassessment by Judas of Jewish and Christian religion in the light of what he has learnt. ("Live, Judas, live. Live and learn," Jesus said to him from the cross). Conversations with representative "Christians" in our own day reveal the peverted and empty forms their Christianity takes. A visit to Israel reveals as much for many aspects of modern Judaism. Then comes the lightning war of the summer of 1967. Where, Judas asks himself, does this leave his people? Is Israel doomed either to perish in some subsequent onslaught or to repeat the history of Rome, developing a new imperialism out of a struggle for mere existence? In the final pages it is an ex-inmate of a Nazi concentration camp who speaks to Judas and to the fighters of Israel, and tells them what they have been chosen for. This is a powerful, original and profoundly searching book, absorbing on the personal level, probing on this historical level, challenging on the philosophical level." 288 pages total. First edition advance review copy (publisher's comp. slip in front). Bound in purple cloth with gilt title/author/publisher on spine. Book is in fine condition - page tops a little sunned, text very clean, corners a little bumped with slight fading at bottom edge of spine corner and a few small dents on bottom edge front board. Dustjacket very good with some sunning and fading to spine and tops, light edgewear and slight grime and protective plastic cover. Bookseller Inventory # FIRST044
