Se abren las posibilidades de ver a Jesus como un verdadero ser humano entre las vicisitudes y las virtudes. At age 75, he was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in for his work in which “parables sustained by imagination, compassion and irony, continually enables us to apprehend an elusory reality.

It’s obvious a genius wrote it. En torno a los talleres literarios Benigno Delmiro Coto Limited preview – 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. There are just too many other books out there to read, to spend any more time on something I’m not enjoying. Return to Book Page.

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? Although he wrote his first novel inhe waited some 35 years before winning critical acclaim for work such as the Memorial do Convento. And as for the Holy Spirit, well, He is hinted at as an impersonal force rather than a divine person.

Saramago is not my favorite author. Saramago, an atheist, attempts to retell the story of Jesus Christ in a manner that suits his religious and philosophical beliefs.

The story begins with a foreword of xegun, describing a painting of the Crucifixion. His works, some of which can be seen as allegories, commonly present subversive perspectives on historic events, emphasizing the human factor rather than the officially sanctioned story.


This was a tedious read for me. But there remains a sense of the extraordinary, wonder to the story and a dark foreboding cloud lies over the ent Not the typical story of Jesus and the holy family at least not the one I grew up with.

Lots of exposition, but everything seemed to wrap up abruptly. This is the story of the life of Jesus, but the first third or more focused on Joseph of Nazareth. Want to Read saving…. 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. I really espected more. Saramago never even hints at incalculable good which Christianity has wrought upon the world for starters, there’s the Salvation Army, United Way, Heartland Hope, Open Door Mission, and thousands upon thousands of hospitals, shelters, and soup kitchens here in the US alone, and that’s only scratching the surface.

Unlike great authors, Saramago never offers much room for interpretation or the possibility of being wrong or even in doubt. I’d love to know what other people think about this book if they’ve read it. It’s definitely creative and smart.

Lists with This Book. But I don’t read for intellectual stimulation unless I’m in a literature class. This book is smart, don’t saraago me wrong. This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers.

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

Mi sfugge il motivo per cui Giuseppe viene mandato a morte per crocifissione. Thanks for telling us about the problem.

Account Options Sign in. OK, I have officially given up on this book. I rate it 2 and that’s for the example of what a book written on such a subject shouldn’t be like I feel very mixed about this book. I have 75 pages left, but I just can’t do it. I just wish Saramago had learnt how to use commas and fullstops at school; to be a bit less clever or pretentious as some people would say ; and finally to be better at keeping me entertained. Interesting modern attempt evangekio understand the duality resulting from being both human and divine at the same time, but never having read the novel by Kazantzakis I suspect that this one is not as jeshcristo as might be at first suspected.


Again, Saramago is only telling the side of the story that will prove his own point without xe even a hint of doubt about his beliefs.

El Evangelio Segun Jesucristo

But I doubt that I will venture into reading other Saramago books. 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 le “Blessed is the reader who manages to reach the end of this book” Jesus Himself is fallible even error-prone on some occasionssinful He has lots of sex with Mary Magdalene out of wedlockand, again, nothing like the Jesus we know sarqmago Scripture. Saramago’s characters often get into philosophical arguments, wherein his anti-God views also jesucriisto out on top.

He is indisputably Portugal’s best-known literary figure and his evanggelio have been translated into more than 25 languages.

He makes mountains out of molehills, and fails to give much depth or complexity to what should have been some fascinating characters. Christians love them some Jesus which is nice and all, but can at least sevun stop giving the guy so much attention?

Just go and read Kazantsakis or The problem is that Saramago sometimes makes assertions without offering any sort of narrative argumentation i.

And that’s saying a lot because the main character is Jesus Christ, who you’d think would be a pretty saraamago character. I feel the title should have been different.
