After a moment his mind stilled. This happened naturally, like a breeze calming over a cool lake. He became aware of his breath going in and out in a soft rhythm. The whole thing was pleasant, soothing. He had the sense, almost physical, that he was sinking down into the earth or was being lowered into a well.

The events of the tale are pure fiction.

Uncovering the transformational "lost years" that are not recounted in the New Testament, Deepak Chopra has imagined Jesus's path to enlightenment moving from obscurity to revolutionary, from doubt to miracles, and then beyond as the role of the long-awaited Messiah. As a teenager, Jesus has premonitions of his destiny, and by the end, as he arrives to be baptized in the River Jordan, he has accepted his fate, which combines extremes of light and darkness. The events of the tale are pure fiction.

Buddha: A Story of Enlightenment. In writing this book, I took a deep breath and created new characters and incidents in the life of one of the most famous people who ever lived. Whoever sees me sees the teaching. Famous, but still very obscure. I wanted to bring Buddha out of the mists of time, to fill him out in flesh and blood while still preserving his mystery.

Jesus is a fresh and inspirational reimagining of a young mans transformational journey from carpenters son to revolutionary leader to the man whom many believe to be the savior of the world. Very little is known or recorded about Jesus in his formative years. In the Gospel stories, we witness the birth of Jesus and then see him as a young boy of twelve intensely questioning the rabbis in the Second Temple in Jerusalem. Jesus does not reappear until age thirty, when he emerges as the potent and stirring rebel baptized by John at the River Jordan. What happens to Jesus in those lost years? How did Jesus the young boy become Christ the Savior? With his characteristic ability for imparting profound spiritual insights through the power of storytelling, Chopras Jesus will capture the life of Jesus as never before.

In writing a fictional account of Jesus, why would the author hang on to that old patriarchic lie that Mary Magdalene was a prostitute? Nothing in any scripture even hints that this was so. So why keep this bit of male propaganda in your bit of fiction? I find that fiction can and often does shed light on a figure in history or an event in a way that a mere historical account cannot do, and I hoped for something of the sort here, but I was disappointed. Tedious dialogues between Jesus and Judas, between Jesus and some mysterious Himalayan mystic, who seems at first to just recount a story he's been told, then suddenly, he becomes omniscient. This is not a story of enlightenment, especially not the enlightenment of a reader. It's meandering and unsatisfying.
Jesus is so dear to so many people. Jesus is so disturbing to so many people. Jesus has always been a source of wisdom and consternation to people whether Christian or not. Christians do not even agree about Jesus. So when an author of another religion altogether endeavors to speak about him, it is significant while yet troubling to many Christians. The significance lies in the light that one who stands outside of the tradition can shed for those inside and I must say that Deepak Chopra does bring to light much that a Christian misses when steeped in Western approaches to Jesus. Mr. Chopra offers an enriching view of the spiritual journey not only that Jesus made but how that journey is one for each of us in our own unique way. Reading this book has helped me find a new a deeper level of encounter with Jesus. I recommend it highly.
Let me start by saying that if you are a Hard nosed Christian who believes Sola Scriptura, and that the bible is completely inerrant - This book is not for you. If however you enjoy thinking and are willing to have your understanding of the events between the Biblical account of Jesus being whisked away at age 2 and his return around 30 with only one biblical notation of his life at age 12... where did he go? what did he do? who was he? Does any one know for certain?? Probably not anymore, this book is a work of historical fiction, yes, but it makes the reader wonder if being the "Son of God" was no more than the value of being a human being a "child of God" or if his seemingly divine power did not in part come from his own personal enlightenment... after all the kingdom of God is within...

Like it, hate it, doesn't matter - Dr Chopra makes you think!
Keep an open mind, think for yourself... but try not to leave it open at both ends!
Maybe I was tired while reading this book during 2 fairly long flights but I was disappointed. While I appreciated the path to enlightenment, the story appeared very anti-climatic when Jesus attained this desired state. Maybe because Christians are only taught about the messages and miracles of Christ and there is very limited information about his experience as a human - with all the temptations and challenges that we face, I was honestly offended by the attraction scene with him and Mary. We are taught about the divine love of Christ in the Bible. There is no consideration of carnal love between Jesus and anybody. Curiosity leads me to wonder how much religion has limited our perception of what is the truth.

I will read this book again to see if my opinion changes but for now, it was an okay novel.
Enjoyed the read but purely as a work of fiction - think I may have been quite disappointed if I picked up the book intending to learn anything at all about Jesus. Chopra, as always, is a great storyteller and blends his own beliefs and values well in the writing.

It's interesting to get a new perspective on how Jesus might have been like and what might have happened. A nice story overall but probably not as good as Chopra's earlier material. There are a few nuggets of wisdom in there and a bit humanizing of Jesus which may not go down well with hardcore Christian followers.
love this guy and his writing for anyone whos interesting in learning more on the subject I would highly recommend
My dad recommended I read this book because I am at a point in my life where I'm doing a lot of soul searching but I don't really have any firm beliefs. Since the platform of this book is essentially that of a novel, I figured it could be pretty digestible.
I love the idea of this book: Jesus was not a static being that was simply born divine, but rather a human being that sought and found enlightenment. He found god not because he was the literal son of God, but rather, he opened his eyes to whatever truth is out there, put it to practice and spread the word. Furthermore, he's not considered the only person to have done this (i.e., Buddha, Muhammad, etc.).
All in all a very insightful story but in truth the book was very hard to get through. I am a reader that needs to be held captive by a book. I don't mind the occasional lull in place of thought provocation, but in the case of "Jesus" I found I was bored a lot of the time.
Great idea, mediocre execution,
Rating: 3 out of 5 stars
Suggested With: An open mind
This is a novel which may reveal more about the author than the subject. What happened in the years following the birth of Jesus and his ministry, which began when he was around 30. Deepak Chopra has an idea. If you have a feeling for traditional Christianity, you might not enjoy this at all. On the other hand, if you are open to metaphysical possibilities, I'd give this a read and enjoy the journey. .
