San Francisco novelist Patrick W. Andersen enjoyed an award-winning career as managing editor of Asian Week for a decade before turning his writing skills to fiction. His debut novel, Second Born, garnered critical acclaim for its reimagining of the early life of Jesus and the geopolitical events that led up to his execution at the hands of Roman soldiers.

Did the Christ become a man, or did a man become the Christ? As I understand it (admittedly with scant study compared to the many scholarly theologians in the field), this was one of the primary questions that prompted the First Council of Nicaea in 325. To people on the edges of or outside of Christianity, the question sounds like splitting hairs over minutiae. Truth be told, many of the faithful even today would probably agree, but the issue had major implications for those who wanted to exert control over the lives of millions.
