Jesus is more human, than divine. Bad theology and crooked philosophy. I wanted to read a first person account of the life of Jesus Christ, and the book definitely didn’t delivered that La escritura creativa en las aulas: LuciferGodJesusJosephMary. Well, it’s always risky to rewrite a religious story and I am of the opinion that i I jesycristo very mixed about this book. 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.

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

In all, Saramago’s work has some slight positive elements, but on the whole, I simply find it lacking joes will never read it again. I’m wondering if the painting described in the first pages is a real one, any clues? Account Options Sign in. The only way Saramago might have won me over is if he had spiced it up with more of that quirky humor of his. I jesucrisot not know about the other titles, but I laughed about 10 minutes in, then I was bored for the entire rest of the book.


Saramago’s idiosyncratic style and refusal to use quotation marks or italics or create indentations more segn once or twice a page is, in my opinion, no good.

It aurpriaed me negatively!

El Evangelio según Jesucristo

Bulghakov’s “Master and Margarita”. The final chapter, which is written in a superb manner. In my copy there is even the engraving at the first chapter. Y al inicio tarda tanto en explicar nimiedades pero al final se apresura a terminar.

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. Just a few pages in, Saramago’s narrator claims that Jesus is mistaken to forgive the repentant thief while condemning the other thief on the cross.

Although he wrote his first novel inhe waited some 35 years before winning critical acclaim for work such as the Memorial do Convento. Saramago, an atheist, attempts to retell the story of Jesus Christ in a manner that suits his religious and philosophical beliefs.

It re-envisions the story of Jesus in a way that attempts to reconcile discrepancies between the old and new testament, so it crafts God and Satan into very different characters than those imagined by the Abrahamic religions.

Lots of exposition, but everything seemed to wrap up abruptly. He makes mountains out of molehills, and fails to give much depth or complexity to what should have been some fascinating characters. In the end, this silly story got too big for its own good and enough is enough, I guess. If I’m going to spend my little free time with a book, I need it to move me emotionally. 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.


Didn’t think the book was great. 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. Lists with This Book.

It’s definitely creative and smart. If, at the end of the day, you want to read an alternative story about Jesus, you can read “The Last Temptation” by Kazantzakis.

Jesus on the boat with God and Pastor and c. Just a few pages in, Saramago’s narrator claims that Saramago, an atheist, attempts to retell the story of Jesus Christ in a manner that suits his religious and philosophical beliefs. From inside the book.

Refresh and try again.
