The "Clifton Chronicles" is Jeffrey Archer's most ambitious
work in four decades as an international bestselling author. The epic tale of
Harry Clifton's life begins in 1920, with the chilling words, 'I was told that
my father was killed in the war'. But it will be another twenty years before
Harry discovers how his father really died, which will only lead him to
question: who was his father? Is he the son of Arthur Clifton, a stevedore who
worked in Bristol docks, or the first born son of a scion of West Country

—­Pope Benedict XVI, October 2006 The Gospel According to Judas, by Benjamin Iscariot sheds new light on the the mystery of Judas—­including his motives for the betrayal and what happened to him after the crucifixion—­by retelling the story of Jesus through the eyes of Judas, using the canonical texts as its basic point of reference.
