REVIEW ✓ LO-MAPS.RU Õ Richard Beard

FREE DOWNLOAD ¶ Lazarus is Dead To learn a trade and ultimately to find his calling in an unprecedented mix of spirituality and revolutionary zeal Lazarus Is Dead is set during the final period in each man’s life or to be precise each man’s first life Both know the end is near and though they’re loath to admit it they long for reconciliation For that to happen they will need to find reasons to believe in each other before time runs o. I found this book to be very intriguing We all well those of us raised in a Christian tradition know the story of Lazarus raised from the dead by Jesus and his sisters practical Martha and faithful Mary But that story is not much than a skeleton missing a before an after and a lot if what s going on around it That s what author Richard Beard tries to flesh out in this book the story around Lazarus resurrectionPart historical fiction and part literary and other arts review Beard creates a story about Lazarus and his childhood friend Jesus destined to become the Messiah and what led to their separation This background story is woven through the narrative of Lazarus first last year and the first week of his second first year which also happens to be Jesus first last week Interspersed through this story are references to Biblical passages works of literature and works of art that reference Lazarus and the events of the time Beard uses these to support the narrative he has created for the life of Lazarus It s structurally well put together and moves easily nearly seamlessly at times from literature reference to story and back againThe first thing I noticed opening the book was that it starts at chapter 7 section 7 Um what Looking at the table of contents I realized the chapter and section headings are a countdown to Lazarus death after which point the chapter and section numbers begin to count up Clever play thereI found the book a uick and enjoyable read If anything I was a little unsatisfied with the rather indecisive ending but it is reflective of Beard s research which states that we really have no idea of what happened to Lazarus after Jesus own death and resurrection There is enough closure however to feel contented upon closing the book
