FINALIST FOR THE INVESTIGATIVE REPORTERS AND EDITORS BOOK AWARD

"Extraordinary"
   —MINNEAPOLIS STAR TRIBUNE

“A tour de force of investigative journalism.”
   —PITTSBURGH POST-GAZETTE

"A wonderfully absorbing example of truth being stranger than fiction."
   —TAMPA BAY TIMES

​"Mesmerizing....[Sabar] has our attention, and slowly, remorselessly, he pays out the rest of his devilish yarn...Savor the denouement—and don't leave at intermission."
     —WALL STREET JOURNAL

"[A] madcap, unforgettable book...for enthusiasts of ancient Christianity...and readers of idea-driven capers, whether by Daniel Silva or Janet Malcolm. It’s a barely believable tale, crazier than a tweed-sniffer in the faculty lounge."
     —NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW​

"The Unbelievable Tale of Jesus's Wife," The Atlantic, ​July/August 2016 issue.
