"The Man Born to be King" by Dorothy Sayers wasn't what I had imagined. I didn't realize it was a series of twelve radio plays. I did know that it was a re-telling of the life of Jesus. What I also didn't realize was that it was written for children. And yet this is a very serious and adult series of plays, and they are very much of their time. The re-telling is somewhat dated not least by its sensibilities. It borders on racist and anti-Semitic in certain passages. Yet well worth reading.
