The Gospel According to Jesus Christ by Jose Saramago

The Gospel According to Jesus Christ

by Jose Saramago

Title Details

Unabridged Edition
Running Time
13 Hrs. 5 Min.


A wry, fictional account of the life of Christ by Nobel laureate Jose Saramago.

A brilliant skeptic, Jose Saramago envisions the life of Jesus Christ and the story of his Passion as things of this earth: A child crying, the caress of a woman half asleep, the bleat of a goat, a prayer uttered in the grayish morning light. His idea of the Holy Family reflects the real complexities of any family, and, as only Saramago can, he imagines them with tinges of vision, dream, and omen.

The result is a deft psychological portrait that moves between poetry and irony, spirituality and irreverence of a savior who is at once the Son of God and a young man. In this provocative, tender novel, the subject of wide critical discussion and wonder, Saramago questions the meaning of God, the foundations of the Church, and human existence itself.
