Original Title: Pasión del dios que quiso ser hombre

Rafael Argullol examines the death of Jesus of Nazareth. His account is equally nourished by the Gospels and successive images based on the story bequeathed to us by artists. Christ is like the hero in a Greek tragedy, a profoundly human figure around which every aspect of existence is in turmoil. Love, friendship, eroticism, freedom and betrayal are stages along an itinerary marked out by an exceptional destiny. Pasión del Dios que quiso ser hombre is a moving text shining with the beauty of a disturbing and highly fascinating story.
