Project Title: The Q Source takes a long posited idea in the academic sector of religious studies – that there was a contemporaneous account of Jesus’ life in Galilee – and imagines it has now come to light. This written source is thought to be the basis for the three synoptic gospels. Using the narrative structure of a conventional thriller, the novel takes a look back at who might have written such a document and why its discovery in our present day would be such a myth breaking event. Ultimately the novel is concerned with how history is conceived, written, and delivered to make sure a predetermined point of view becomes “the truth.”
