Theo Gripenkerl is a modest academic wtih an Olympian ego. When he visits a looted museum in Iraq, looking for treasures he can ship back to Canada, he finds nine papyrus scrolls that have lain hidden for 2000 years. Once translated from Aramaic, these prove to be the fifth gospel, written by an eye-witness of Jesus Christ's last days.

Book Description:

'What he did for the Victorian novel in The Crimson Petal and the White Faber now does for the bestselling books du jour.' Guardian

From the Back Cover:

'A thriller of a story.'
The Times

'The satire is so entertaining, the pace so sharp, the writing so witty . . . it's effortless to consume.'
Observer

When Theo Griepenkerl happens upon the fifth Gospel in a war-torn Iraqi museum, he can't believe his luck. Driven by greed and a lust for fame, he capitalises on his find by publishing it. His book is a sensation. But he can hardly imagine the incendiary consequences his discovery will have for Christians, Arabs, homicidal maniacs and Amazon customers alike.

The Fire Gospel is a brilliant piece of storytelling, dazzlingly outrageous and utterly gripping.

'Faber's latest bristles with tightly edited ideas . . . This is a lean, controlled, instantly engrossing book.' *****
Financial Times
