520 8 "Imagined as a sequel to the Old and New Testaments of the
Bible by Magnum photographer Jonas Bendiksen, 'The Last
Testament' features visual accounts and stories of seven
men around the world who claim to be the Second Coming of
Jesus Christ. Building on biblical form and structure,
chapters dedicated to each Jesus include excerpts of their
scriptural testaments, laying out their theology and
demands on mankind in their own words. Through Bendiksen's
personal testimonies and intimate portraits, The Last
Testament investigates the boundaries of religious faith,
and a world in need of salvation, yearning for a new
prophet. Whether escaping an angry mob in the streets with
the Jesus of Kitwe, joining a Messianic birthday
pilgrimage in Siberia, or witnessing the End of Days with
Moses in South Africa, Bendiksen immerses himself among
the disciples of each Jesus. He takes at face value that
each is the one true Messiah returned to Earth, to forge
an account that's both a work of apocalyptic journalism
and of a compelling artistic imagination."--Amazon.
