Christ the Lord: Out of Egypt - Anne Rice - A Short Summary & Review

A short summary of Out of Egypt:

A short tale about a young boy named Jesus.

My favorite Anne Rice quote from the book:

"I was sent here to be alive. To breathe and sweat and thirst and sometimes cry."

Questions to ponder while reading Out of Egypt:

How much should young children know?

How would you feel?

My review of Out of Egypt:

I was pleasantly surprised by this book.  

Ms. Rice did a great job bringing to life a precocious and empathetic child.  

I can't imagine how I would feel after finding out such a secret.

  I was devastated to think that a child would ultimately have to carry that type of burden.
