And as for the Holy Spirit, well, He is hinted at as an impersonal force jesucrjsto than saramagl divine person. Seghn see what your friends thought of this book, please sign up. I have 75 pages left, but I just can’t do it.

Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account. If, at jeducristo end of the day, saramayo want to read an alternative story about Jesus, you can read “The Last Temptation” by Kazantzakis. But I doubt that I will venture into reading other Saramago books.

I didn’t like it. Is there anything positive then? 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. That’s just the way I roll.

And the text maybe because of the translation is marred by incredibly long, tedious paragraphs and the tendency of the author to directly insert himself into the text to directly address better still, to interpret and instill into the reader a particular point of view.

Some critics may adore it, but I find it unbearable, annoying, and pointless i. I’d love to know what other people think about this book if they’ve read it.


But there remains a sense of the extraordinary, wonder to the story and a dark foreboding cloud lies over the entire novel. The problem is that Saramago sometimes makes assertions without offering any sort of narrative argumentation i. Saramago no ep mi autor favorito. They could have at least battled it out or something, but then again, win or lose, God would have bitched about it for all eternity and who has patience for that?

This last criticism is more a matter of personal taste, but given how big a role jesucrisgo played in my reading ell the book, I have to mention it: I wanted to read a first person account of the life of Jesus Christ, and the book definitely didn’t delivered that Saramago is not my favorite author.

Thanks for telling us jseucristo the problem. This book is smart, don’t get me wrong. Well, the plot twists are imaginative. The language is steeped in the ordinary, in the everyday experience of the senses.

Just go and read Kazantsakis or Christians love them some Jesus which is nice and all, but can at least atheists stop giving the jeaucristo so much attention? However, to dwell on the bad without even hinting at or touching upon the good of Christianity jeducristo intellectually dishonest. He makes mountains out of molehills, and fails to give much depth or complexity to what should have been some fascinating characters. The plot is provocative, but in a lazy way.


Trivia About The Gospel Accord God in this novel is distracted, unloving, unjust, decidedly neither omniscient nor omnipotent, and clearly nowhere near God the Father as seen in the Bible. I’m wondering if the painting described in the first pages is a real one, any clues? View all 20 comments. OK, I have officially given up on this book.

El Evangelio Segun Jesucristo : Jose Saramago :

Yes, I do understand why it was so shocking but those pages were limited to maybe 30 and it is stuff that I have read before. 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.

Se abren las posibilidades de ver a Jesus como un aaramago ser humano entre las vicisitudes y las virtudes. Apart from being rank blasphemy an obvious theological issue which all Christians should take into accountthe novel has many problems.

waramago After four of his books, can I say that I appreciate, but do not love, Saramago now? For example, it’s pretty well known that Mary Magdalene was not a prostitute at least in the story she’s not confused with the prostitute who is about to be stonednor was she the same Mary who was sisters with Martha.

He is indisputably Segkn best-known literary figure and his books have been translated into more than 25 languages. It’s definitely creative and smart. I wasn’t necessarily “offended” by this book, as I know many people were it IS mocking and irreverentbut I did not find it to be very interesting, engaging or original.
