If Saramago had examined both the good and bad of Christianity and found the latter to outweigh the former, I can respect that even if I fervently disagree with the conclusion. Just a few pages in, Saramago’s narrator claims that Jesus is mistaken to forgive the repentant thief while condemning the other thief on the cross.

I do not know about the other titles, but Yes, I do understand why it was so ejsucristo but those pages were limited to maybe 30 and it is stuff that I have read before.
