Summary:

Joseph Girzone, who so powerfully captured the spirit of Jesus in his Joshua novels and in his best-selling A Portrait of Jesus, brings his work to a beautiful culmination with this retelling of the life and work of Jesus, based on the accounts in the Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. Girzone captures the greatest story ever told in language that will open the hearts of readers from all backgrounds. From the birth of the Messiah to the wedding at Cana, the Sermon on the Mount, the Passion, and the triumphant Resurrection, each episode and lesson from the life of Jesus is rendered with wisdom and freshness.

"Girzone uses Jesus' relationships with both God and others to define just what intimacy with God actually looks like."-Publishers Weekly

    I am less than 1 year in a Bible Study group at our church on the Life of Jesus. This book certainly helped me to listen to information when I do not find the time to read the assignments. Thanks Joseph Girzone & audio books.

    I was very disappointed in the audio book. It is simply a reading of the gospels. The author contributed nothing to the telling of the story. Anyone could read the gospels and call it Jesus' teaching. I'm glad I rented this and didn't purchase it - thank goodness for Simply Audiobooks.

    Joseph Girzone does it again. His writing are awesome. He actually helps you to see the life that Jesus lead.

    There are no real insights here whatsoever - no original thoughts. It is simply a retelling, in his own words, of the four gospels. Thats fine if that's what you are looking for - I was not. If I want the Bible, I will read it. I was looking for something....I don't quite know...different.

    It's a great audiobook, just not waht I was thinking. I was thinking it was going to be a discussion about Jesus and his teachings, but what it really was, was a cumulation of Jesus' life from the Gospels - so it was basically like having someone reading the Bible to you, except that it was a single reading from the beginning to the end of Jesus' life. There was elaboration from a scholarly point of view like you would have in a Bible Study.
