Shadow of the Galilean book. In The Shadow of Galilean, Gerd Theissen depicts the story of Andreas, a Galilean merchant, who becomes involved with Roman officials and ultimately collects information for them about Jesus of Nazareth. A key aspect of this narrative is the contemplation of the protagonist Andreas. Throughout the story, his reflections give insight to the reader not only on his perspective as a Jew, but also on the perspectives of the Romans, Zealots, and women such as Joanna, among others.

Combining New Testament study with the terseness of thriller writing, Theissen conveys the Gospel story in the imaginative prose of a novel. This is a story of our times, or how the gospels might have turned out if they were written by John Le Carre: racy, readable and full of incident.
