"I appreciate Marc Knutsen's braveness in writing Embedded as his first novel. not just is he taking over the main dramatic tale ever instructed, that of Jesus' existence, yet he is also putting it in an anachronistic environment, instructed from the viewpoint of a modern journalist named Steve. After the reader adjusts to the strange juxtaposition of time periods--Steve has a computer and mobilephone phone--the narrative is riveting. Steve brings a modern interest to the traditional tale. And it really works. Knutsen confronts head-on the present competition to the Christ-story through taking a latest journalist actually again then."
