Jesus Christ Superstar
Though the Rock Opera "Jesus Christ Superstar" has become a religious and musical phenomenon, beloved around the world among Christians and non-believers alike, no one has ever delved into the lyrics with the practiced eye of a professional biblical critic until now. Robert M. Price here shows in surprising detail the astonishing insight and creativity of Tim Rice's sifting and rewriting of the gospels, producing in effect a fifth, genuine gospel! The result is a complete line-by-line commentary on this Superstar Gospel.
