Seating in the Ossian Branch

Iscariot

Posted on June 24, 2013 at 11:08 AM

Tosca Lee has written a riveting fictionalized tale of the life of Judas Iscariot, a man whose name has become synonymous with traitor. Lee imagines the life history of Judas of Cariot and what led him to become the zealot whose political and religious ideals led him to betray the person he had come to love the most in the world. This book, which I experienced through a nicely produced audiobook, really gave me new insights into the Jewish religious environment and the effects of Roman occupation during Jesus' life in Israel. I highly recommend it!

I’m Teresa Dustman, and I’m the Circulation Manager here at WCPL. If you come into the library with any frequency you know my face from the front desk (because I feel like I live out there!). When I’m not at the front desk I’m at my desk behind the window, working to make your library experience exceptional. During those hours that I’m away from the library I love to walk, jog, bike, kayak (anything enjoying God’s nature), travel, and spend time with my family and friends.
