about this book

Barabbas is the acquitted; the man whose life was exchanged for that of Jesus of Nazareth, crucified upon the hill of Golgotha. Barabbas is a man condemned to have no god. He cannot affirm his faith; he cannot pray; he can only say, "I want to believe."

"As a parable, Barabbas is open to many interpretations. As a picture of the human soul, with or without parable, it is moving and convincing."--Time
