La escritura creativa en las aulas: The only way Saramago might have won me over is if he had spiced it up with more of that quirky humor of his.

El evangelio según Jesucristo – José Saramago – Google Books

I sehun not like his emphasis on Mary Magdalene as a prostitute. My library Help Advanced Book Search. Saramago construye su idea del mundo: El argumento es agradable e interesante. But I don’t read for intellectual stimulation unless I’m in a literature class. Do you know Jesus Christ? The structure and time of writing are too incertain 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 jesucrito point of view.

Saramago is not my favorite author. 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.

Saramago’s house in Lanzarote is also open to the public. Seriously now, I might disagree with a lot of the people that have srgun this book, but I found most of it utterly boring.

El evangelio según Jesucristo / The Gospel According to Jesus Christ

Trivia About The Gospel Accord As it is, I find it to be a tedious and pointless read and I see no reason for this story to be retold and distorted for the umpteenth time. The final chapter, which is written in a superb manner. I’m wondering if the painting described in the first pages is a real one, any clues? In the end, this silly story got too big for its own good and enough is enough, I guess. Alfaguara- Fiction – pages.


Lists with This Book.

User Review – Flag as inappropriate Excelente libro, muy humanista, pocos son los que realamente han pensado que Jesucristo tenia necesidades como un ser terrenal comun, me encanto. 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. Saramago, an atheist, attempts to retell the story of Jesus Christ in a manner that suits his religious and philosophical beliefs.

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. And as for the Holy Spirit, well, He is hinted at as an impersonal force rather than a divine person.

I also did not like the ending. But there remains a sense of the extraordinary, wonder to the story and a dark foreboding cloud lies over the entire novel.

I need a book to make me cry if I’m going to like it. 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. But alas, I have given up my intellectual pretenses and have accepted that I’m a hopeless romantic. Still, it took me a very long time to finish it because for long sections I was not particularly gripped. I also liked Saramago’s cheekiness, but I am a cheeky bugger, too, and nobody seems to give me any Nobel prize for my efforts!

His story is more about about the ordinary, day to day existence with the joys, sorrows, confusion, etc. Want to Read saving…. Es un libro excelente si uno quiere ver a un jesus de una manera mas humana excelente forma de imaginar a un jesus que siente piensa y vive una vida humana.


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. Thanks for telling us about the problem. Just dd moment while segn sign you in to your Goodreads account.

Well, the plot twists are imaginative. Jesus on the boat with God and Pastor and c. Although he wrote his first novel jeeucristohe waited some 35 years before winning critical acclaim for work such as the Memorial do Convento. God goes on for about half a dozen pages naming martyrs and the ways in which they died for the gospel and then mentions the Crusades and the Inquisition.

Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read. Bad theology and crooked philosophy. It is much better. Well, it’s always risky to rewrite a religious story and I am of the opinion that if you’re going to do it, then evangeloo really have to know your stuff.

El Evangelio Segun Jesucristo : Jose Saramago :

There are just jesucrixto many other books out there to read, to spend any more time on something I’m not enjoying. Jesus is more human, than divine. This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers.

These elements are well done. 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 jesycristo me entertained. I think this is a well written book.
