After all, were any of us there? Now I have to decide if I will continue with my version of them or Fulton's This book has enriched and invigorated my reading of Scripture. Mar 21, Amanda rated it did not like it. You cannot rewrite the greatest story ever written. If you want to read the greatest story ever told read it straight from the bible! The Word is alive. It doesn't need to be rewritten. If the authors desire was to inspire people to read the Word and follow Christ, why not be a witness to the truth?
Faith comes by hearing and by hearing the word of God. There are too many inaccuracies in this book to be accepted or taken seriously as a retelling of the greatest story You cannot rewrite the greatest story ever written. There are too many inaccuracies in this book to be accepted or taken seriously as a retelling of the greatest story ever told.
And any attempt to do so apart from the facts which are written in the Word of God is disgusting. How could the author say "Jesus thought to himself? This is just the authors interpretation of the Word. It is far from accurate. To rewrite it apart from facts, to rewrite it according to your own interpretation, is to leave out the power of the Holy Spirit to draw hearts to the truth.
I want the real genuine infallible and powerful Word of God. You cannot ever make the contents therein more desirable than it already is. This is nothing short of fictional counterfeit.

This is a fabulous retelling of the story of Jesus, his birth, teaching, healing, suffering and resurrection. It is a classic among american literature and a heritage to an age when people would listen to the radio for stories.
What I enjoyed most about this retelling of Jesus' life was how real the characters were, especially those who are on the outside looking in. Our Bible doesn't give back stories to guys like Annas or Zaccheus but this book attempts to do so. Largely it is a success. I als This is a fabulous retelling of the story of Jesus, his birth, teaching, healing, suffering and resurrection.

I also appreciate how this book glides seamlessly through the many divides between the synoptics and the Gospel of John. It knows that there are differences but the writer deftly maneuvers these differences and brings them together. I read this book because someone in the congregation gave it to me to read. Apr 19, Deb rated it it was amazing Shelves: historical-fiction , also-a-movie , christian-fiction-novel.
I will admit that I do not know what "serious" Biblical scholars think. But since my copy from the 's says 3. Little details that flesh it out, make if more rich in detail of what life was like. Also helps explain some of the ri I will admit that I do not know what "serious" Biblical scholars think.
Also helps explain some of the ritual life: what would Jesus have seen at the temple when he was 12? Lots of research had to go into this. Now for the picky picky Biblical scholars, the info for this book was researched before internet, before Dead Sea Scrolls translated, etc Am still reading this book I will not do a detailed review of this book as I believe that most men are familiar with the life of Jesus Christ.
However, I only have questions. Am not a Bible historian, but there are new facts which I have discovered when reading this book which am not quite sure about. Who is Samuel the revolutionary who changes his name to Barabbas Jesus? Is it true that Joachim and Anna were Mary's parents? Nov 16, Christy rated it it was amazing. This time-honored classic retells the story of the life of Christ.
It has made the New Testament come alive for me. Sep 14, Rosa rated it it was amazing. This is by far the most in-depth, inspired novel I have ever read. The way this author weaves words together I doubt I'll ever read other books the same way. Sure, I love the stories and characters of different books, but I haven't yet read such a work of art as this book. Dec 31, Joanna rated it it was amazing.
I wanted very much to read about Jesus' life in a story format such as this. It took me a while to find it, but this book enables me to envision his life and even put myself there as an observer. It definitely helped me to be a better disciple. A nicely written telling of the life of Jesus, from birth through ministry, to arrest and crucifiction, to resurection. The author did a good job of putting the story into a easily readable novel format. Dec 23, Nancy Hammons rated it it was amazing.
Wow, that was some story. There was a part about 40 pages from the end that I stopped, I knew how it ended and I didn't want to read that, but I did.

When Jesus was arrested in the garden and then when Peter denied him, I cried a little. Humankind hasn't come very far have we? Sep 06, Victor rated it it was ok. This book is not terrible, but it is outdated. The side story of Barabbas acting like Che Guevara was unnecessary to me, I am pretty sure that Joseph did not have a blond beard, I do not feel like discussing Jesus having pale skin after fasting in the dessert for 40 days, and the portrayal of a tax collector smiling sneakily while rubbing his hands is too mu This book is not terrible, but it is outdated.

I did enjoy the ending with all of the politics, and I am surprised that the people who I know that also read this book enjoyed that the least. I believe it is because if someone tells me that they are writing a narrative about Jesus, I expect it to be as similar to the Gospels as possible.
Session Expiration Warning
My expectations are much lower if you are writing about the politics of Annas and Caiaphas. If you just want a nice narrative about the Gospels, you may enjoy this book, but I would strongly recommend against handing this book to someone who is unfamiliar with Christianity. Apr 17, Samuel rated it really liked it. I superb book for anyone wanting to get a better idea of the life of Jesus of Nazareth. Author Fulton Oursler begins with early life of Mary and Joseph and unfolds the drama of the life of Jesus Christ up to the very end.
Having read "Killing Jesus" by Bill O'Reilly, I can't help but compare the two and surmise that while each tells the story of Jesus' life, neither seems to tell the entire story and so therefore I'd recommend them as complementary to one another to get a more complete picture. Aug 27, P. Winn rated it really liked it. The life of Jesus Christ is fascinating and I think a must read.
For me it is a what if story. What if Jesus could be see as a man and what if we could find a way to create our own miracles? Did God give healing gifts and more to each of us. Follow the life of the man who so many believe in, worship and follow so many years after his awful death. The author has told the story of Jesus' life in a narrative fashion. Most of the words ascribed to Jesus come directly from the scriptures. The ending was a little drawn-out, but otherwise the book was great.
I am so happy to be reading this exquisite Story about the life of Our Lord. And at a time when I most need it. What a blessing. Apr 05, Cassandra rated it really liked it Shelves: nonfiction. It was interesting to read this book, which attempts to combine the four gospel narratives. I'm afraid my copy of the book is missing a few pages at the end. Apr 03, Joy rated it really liked it. This was a timely book to read during the Easter season. Apr 22, Bridgette rated it really liked it. This was very good.
I enjoyed hearing the story of Christ told in a narrative form. Beautifully written. It tells the story of Jesus from a nontraditional point of view and gives it life.
