With Pilgrim at Sea the author has completed his tetralogy (set of 4 books) searching for God--journeying to the Holy Land but we never get there, we are always at sea. In this tale, Giovanni, the priest, insults the pious travelers and advises Tobias to embrace insecurity as the only sure thing because the sea does not concern itself with right and wrong, sin or guilt.

The sibyl by Pär Lagerkvist( )

In this powerful, poetic, and moving parable, the Wandering Jew of medieval Christian legend journeys to Delphi to consult the famed oracle of the pagans. He is turned away but not before learning that one of the most adept of the old priestesses, or sibyls, lives in disgrace in the mountains above the Temple. In her rude goat-hut he seeks the meaning of his disastrous brush with the son of God. She reveals that she, too, has been touched by the son of a god, a very different son, not quite human, born of her own body. He dwells with her as a constant reminder of the betrayal of her mystical and erotic union with the divine, her punishment, and--perhaps--her redemption

27 editions published between 1961 and 2016 in 6 languages and held by 89 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This epic biblical drama tells the story of Barabbas, the criminal whose life was spared over Jesus Christ's. Arrested for murder and theft, Barabbas was to be crucified but, at the last minute, Roman leader Pontius Pilate allowed a mob to decide who should die: Christ or Barabbas. The crowd doomed Jesus, and Barabbas was released. But the former convict became racked with guilt and struggled to understand why so many people -- including Rachel, the woman he loved -- believed Jesus to be the son of God. His search for meaning continued through his experiences as a slave and a gladiator, up to the end of his life
