A “Personal Jesus” takes the life of Jesus as Upton Sinclair imagines him to be. Sinclair breaks up this novel into 3 sections- youth, mission and spirit. Again, he delves into religon and leaves his usual path of politics – but are not religions – Christianity, Judism and Islam political? A good question throughout history and especially in our modern times. As Sinclair says in the preface “the story of Jesus cannot be told without controversy, for controversy is the very essence of it”. As a reviewer said, “Sinclair was a giant and this novel comes close to who Jesus was as a person than any scholarly account. And this is the magic of Sinclair”. Religous believers and political activist should read this novel to get a glimpse of where Sinclair is coming from. A Collector’s Edition.
