AWESOME! Martin does it again - weaves history, theology and life into a a great read. ( )
  nsestak | Apr 4, 2009 |
The author is a Jesuit priest who is asked by the author of a play about Judas to act as a theological advisor to the production. The actors and playwright wrestle with the story of Judas and whether he should be considered as a villian or an object of sympathy, the author finds himself having deep spiritual discussions with them, sometimes filling them in on religious history, sometimes just being a kind ear for them to vent to. The result is a fascinating look at what goes on behind the scenes in a theatrical production, as well as a very human story of people wrestling with the Biblical story of Jesus. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0829425829, Hardcover)

Many of us have questions about the Bible: Can we believe the Bible? What was Jesus’ mission? What is sin? Does hell exist? Is anyone beyond God’s forgiveness? In A Jesuit Off-Brodway, James Martin, SJ, answers these questions about the Bible, and other big questions about life, as he serves as a theological advisor to the cast of The Last Days of Judas Iscariot.

Grab a front-row seat to Fr. Martin's six months with the LAByrinth Theater Company and see first-hand what it's like to share the faith with a largely secular group of people . . . and discover, along with Martin, that the sacred and the secular aren't always that far apart.
