The Gospel According to Lazarus, by Richard Zimler (2019)

Richard Zimler’s most recent novel has been described as a ‘biblical thriller.’ In it, he imagines the details of Jesus’ friendship with Lazarus, and retells the story of the Passion from Lazarus’ point of view.

In this masterful work of historical fiction, Zimler takes a well-known bible story and turns it into a readable novel that you won’t be able to put down.
