M. V. Kamath says, "One must remember that this is a work of fiction. Provocative, but commanding attention. What is truth? Jesting Pilate is quoted as having asked Jesus. One might as well ask the same question of the author, in jest or in all seriousness. From what he has written it is clear that he will not pause for an answer."
