Behold the Man by Michael MoorcockKarl Glogauer is a disaffected modern professional casting about for meaning in a series of half-hearted relationships, a dead-end job, and a personal struggle. His questions of faith surrounding his fathers run-of-the-mill Christianity and his mothers suppressed Judaism lead him to a bizarre obsession with the idea of the messiah. After the collapse of his latest affair and his introduction to a reclusive physics professor, Karl is given the opportunity to confront his obsession and take a journey that no man has taken before, and from which he knows he cannot return.
Upon arriving in Palestine, A.D. 29, Glogauer finds that Jesus Christ is not the man that history and faith would like to believe, but that there is an opportunity for someone to change the course of history by making the ultimate sacrifice.
First published in 1969, Behold the Man broke through science fictions genre boundaries to create a poignant reflection on faith, disillusion and self-sacrifice. This is the classic novel that established the career of perhaps contemporary science fictions most cerebral and innovative author.

The title is a reference to the prophecy of Daniel Chapter His dominion is an everlasting dominion Which will not pass away; And His kingdom is one Which will not be destroyed," Daniel The description of this figure as "one like a Son of Man," is probably to contrast Him with the beastly figures that represented the pagan kings and kingdoms of the world earlier in the vision. It was a declaration of His Messianic authority and even to His divinity. Note the reaction Jesus receives when He applies this prophecy to Himself before the Jewish authorities:. You have heard the blasphemy; how does it seem to you?
