I feel very mixed about this book. User Review – Flag as inappropriate Excelente libro, muy humanista, pocos son los que realamente han pensado que Jesucristo tenia necesidades como un ser terrenal comun, me encanto.

El Evangelio según Jesucristo

Maybe it was because this was my first attempt at reading a book on an electronic device, but I found myself not eager to pick it up. Religion in this novel is generally portrayed as a brutal, ignorant force. Saramago, an atheist, attempts to retell the story of Jesus Christ in a manner that suits his religious and philosophical beliefs. After this, Saramago tells the story or at least his cherry-picked version of the Anunciation, moving on to the Nativity, the death of Joseph, Jesus’ coming of age, and finally, His ministry and crucifixion naturally, Saramago leaves out the Resurrection, the great event that distinguishes Christianity from all others from both a theological and a historical point of view.

Alfaguara- Fiction – pages. I know that everybody loves Saramago.

I guess I’m just not impressed by hearing the same boring stories I’ve heard all my life, but told in a slightly different tone, with sex added. I think this is a well written book. Didn’t think the book was great. Saramago is not my favorite author. A foundation with his name was established in ; jesucrist main aims are cultural promotion, particularly of Portuguese literature and authors. Nobel prize de Literatura the Gospel according to Jesus Christ responds the desire of a man and a writer to excavate until the roots of the own civilization, in the mystery of its tradition, to extract the essential questions Saramago’s idiosyncratic style and refusal to use quotation marks or italics or create indentations more than once or twice a page is, in my opinion, no good.


But I don’t read for intellectual stimulation unless I’m in a literature class. Still, it took me a very long time to finish it becau This is the story of the life of Jesus, but the first third or more focused on Degun of Nazareth. I rate it 2 and jesuctisto for the example of what a book written on such a subject shouldn’t be like Il libro mi sembra una enorme occasione perduta.

El Evangelio según Jesucristo by José Saramago (2 star ratings)

Si son cristianos no lean este libro, no se hagan ese mal. I’d love to know what other people think about this book if they’ve read it. Do you know Jesus Christ?

Things improve a bit when Jesus decides to make an appearance at some point, but his life, as we all know, is short-lived and thus we are left even more frustrated not only because of His premature death, but also because he has abandoned us alone with Saramago.

For the last few days, I have picked it up only to put it down again as soon as I read the first sentence five times. That is, the characters which espouse the author’s atheistic viewpoint God is evil, Christianity is bad, etc.

And Jesus lives with Mary Magdalene as a husband would. Too boring in discussing atheism va catholicism contraditions. According to the author, this book is like a second reading of the Gospels, like a trip to the origins of religion.

After four of his books, can I say that I appreciate, but do not love, Saramago now? I saamago not like his emphasis on Mary Magdalene as a prostitute. Bulghakov’s “Master and Margarita”. Honestly, though, the book was worth reading for a moment in which eels and shrimp come to think of themselves as the “chosen” sarramago when they’re thrown back in the water by Jewish fisherman observing their dietary taboos.

El evangelio según Jesucristo / The Gospel According to Jesus Christ

It needs a more narratively savvy approach! That said, because it’s on my Ipad, I think I will give this one another shot at some later date. I need a book to make me cry if I’m ebangelio to like it. These elements are well done. You know, entertainment and intellectual stimulation can go hand in hand.


Lots of exposition, but everything seemed to wrap up abruptly.

Just a few pages in, Saramzgo narrator claims that Saramago, an atheist, attempts to retell the story of Jesus Christ in a manner that suits his religious and philosophical beliefs. I really espected more. His story is more about about the ordinary, day to day existence evangleio the joys, sorrows, confusion, etc. Y al inicio tarda tanto en explicar nimiedades pero al final se apresura a terminar. I laughed about 10 minutes in, then I was bored for the entire rest of the book.

This was for a book club, and it was suggested by a friend who sang high praises of this author. If, at the end of the day, sarwmago want to read an alternative story about Jesus, you can read “The Last Temptation” by Kazantzakis.

I didn’t like it. En torno a los talleres literarios Benigno Delmiro Coto Limited preview – I have 75 pages left, but I just can’t do it.

But alas, I have given up my intellectual pretenses and have accepted that I’m a hopeless romantic. Again, Saramago is only telling the side of the story that will prove his own point without suggesting even a hint of doubt about his beliefs. Jesus on the boat with God and Pastor and c.
