    Jesus' brothers and sisters are shadowy figures in the Bible, and the dominant tradition of Christian art focuses on the recognizable trio of Madonna, Child and Joseph. But in this book Churton looks again at the historical texts and apocryphal scriptures which present a different view of the family. By exploring the antagonistic relationship between St Paul and Jesus' brother James, he reveals how divisions developed in the Christian faith so that the family's place in Jesus' story was elided.
