Beginning during the Cold War, a genre of novel began appearing in the U.S. following a common theme: a new, first-century gospel has been found (or is rumored to exist) that explodes everything we think we know about Christ and Christianity and threatens to topple Western civilization. Our hero finds himself in a race against time, and a conflict with shadowy political and religious forces, to discover the truth. This talk by Andrew Jacobs (Harvard) asks what these dozens of novels, which continue to appear, can tell us about U.S. cultural fears and desires surrounding the Bible.
