Jesus is a fresh and inspirational reimagining of a young man’s transformational journey from carpenter’s son to revolutionary leader to the man whom many believe to be the savior of the world.

Very little is known or recorded about Jesus in his formative years. In the Gospel stories, we witness the birth of Jesus and then see him as a young boy of twelve intensely questioning the rabbis in the Second Temple in Jerusalem. Jesus does not reappear until age thirty, when he emerges as the potent and stirring rebel baptized by John at the River Jordan. What happens to Jesus in those lost years? How did Jesus the young boy become Christ the Savior?

With his characteristic ability for imparting profound spiritual insights through the power of storytelling, Chopra’s Jesus will capture the life of Jesus as never before.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Deepak takes on the story of Jesus in a way that is both respectful and common. If as a Christian you are afraid of what is inside these pages, don’t be. It quietly succeeded in restoring my faith in my own faith.”

    Kevin Costner

  • “A gripping tale of one man’s archetypal journey through confusion, doubt, and despair to self-annihilation and the realization of his true identity as the ‘light of the world.’”

    Eckhart Tolle, New York Times bestselling author

  • “We journey with a very human Jesus through a tough and turbulent landscape to discover his greatest message, that of personal transformation and enlightenment. Deepak Chopra’s story is an inspiring gift for those who truly care and have the courage to seek.”

    Michael Baigent, New York Times bestselling author

  • “Once again, Deepak Chopra combines spirituality with dramatic narrative to breathe new life into a story that we all assumed we knew. This unique and intriguing story inspires as well as educates. Chopra’s Jesus is every bit as compelling as his groundbreaking retelling of Buddha.”

    Tim Kring, creator of Heroes and Crossing Jordan

  • “À la The Da Vinci Code, this thought-provoking tale is sure to ignite exciting questions and controversy.”

    Jill Gregory, USA Today bestselling author

  • “In Jesus: A Story of Enlightenment, Deepak Chopra dares us to ponder paradigms embedded deep within our very DNA and question unquestionable truths. Chopra introduces a breathtaking epistemology that is altogether fresh and divine. His powerful revelation threatens our ability to live our lives in darkness.”

    Cheryl Woodcock, correspondent and producer, Entertainment Tonight and The Insider

  • “It is such an original and intriguing approach to imagine which Jesus was ‘left out of the bible.’ Chopra’s novel is a fascinating read.”

    Petru Popescu, USA Today bestselling author

  • “The ethereal power of [Chopra’s] voice and the evocative manner in which he sets the stage remain effective. Perhaps the most compelling elements of the story line involve Judas and Mary Magdalene, two of New Testament history’s most complicated and controversial figures.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Chopra twists the kaleidoscope and offers a very different Messiah than commonly imagined…Chopra has some intriguing ideas about Jesus and his true message that may prompt worthwhile discussion.”

    Booklist

  • As a Jew I was taught to reject Jesus. As a mystic I was drawn to his light. This brave book invites me to approach Jesus anew, with great curiosity and a humble heart, and to love him, in the end, as my Self.”

    Raphael Cushnir, author of The One Thing Holding You Back

  • A New York Times Bestseller

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Karen Jett | 2/18/2014

    " This is Deepak's assessment of what Jesus' life may have been like. I really liked that he brought the man alive and made him vulnerable. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Melissa | 2/6/2014

    " I found great interest in this possible version of Jesus's coming of age, questions about his true place in man's world and his acceptance of his destiny. Although his lost years create many questions about his travels and learning...it's hard to imagine that Jesus struggled with questions of morality, belonging, truth, survival and happiness in a volatile world. In these strange and violent times, these lessons have never been more important. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by B.j. | 2/3/2014

    " This is a novel using what is known about Jesus and the culture & politics of the time and filling in the gap between 12 & 30 years old which is missing in the Bible. He is described as a young man who knows he's different and searches for the truth and his destiny. This is a novel about his enlightenment and resurrection. I think I have a better picture of what he was like after reading this book. Deepak Chopra has artfully humanized Jesus so we can know him better. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Joanna | 1/30/2014

    " This book portrays Jesus as a human who is just like the rest of us, full of life struggles, doubt, and self questions. The author seems to think that this would be offending to most Christians and yet that is exactly how I see Him. Over all, I really liked this book. "
