View all 20 comments. Jesus is more human, than divine. A foundation with his name was established in ; its main aims are cultural promotion, particularly of Portuguese literature and authors. I find it annoying when jesucriso the women of the New Testament are conflated. In my copy there is even the engraving at the first chapter.

The language is steeped in the ordinary, in the everyday experience of the senses. Honestly, though, the book was worth reading for a moment in which eels and shrimp come to think of themselves as the “chosen” fish when they’re thrown back in the water by Jewish fisherman observing their dietary taboos. It is no wonder that the uesucristo time I picked up this book to try reading dr, I didn’t get past the first few pages – it just bored me – and that it took a cross Atlantic flight of 6 hours for me to finally get far enough along to end up finishing the book.

This was a tedious read for me. 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. And Jesus lives with Mary Magdalene as a husband would.


Not the typical story of Jesus and the holy family at least not the one I grew up with. I wanted to read a first person account of the life of Jesus Christ, and the book definitely didn’t delivered that An interesting concept of the humanity of Jesus.

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. Una historia muy interesante. Some critics may adore it, but I find jeaucristo unbearable, annoying, jesucriso pointless i.

So why the mixed feelings? Return to Book Page. Se abren las posibilidades de ver a Jesus como un verdadero ser humano entre las vicisitudes y las virtudes. Still, it took me a very long time to finish it because for long sections I was not particularly gripped. En torno a los talleres literarios Benigno Delmiro Coto Limited preview – 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.

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

In my copy there is even the evangeilo at the first …more No, he is describing this engraving by Albrecht Durer: Although he wrote his first novel inhe waited some 35 years before winning critical acclaim for work such as the Memorial do Convento.

I need a book to make me cry if I’m going to like it. He is indisputably Portugal’s best-known literary figure and his books have been translated into more than 25 languages.

I really espected more. Still, it took me a very long time to finish it becau This is the story of the dvangelio of Jesus, but the first third or more focused on Joseph of Nazareth. Saramago’s characters often get into philosophical arguments, wherein his anti-God views also come out on top. 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?


I feel like I should be ashamed of this. Saramago is not my favorite author.

El evangelio según Jesucristo / The Gospel According to Jesus Christ

Paperbackpages. Apart from being rank blasphemy an obvious theological issue which all Christians should take into accountthe novel has many problems. Too boring in discussing atheism va catholicism contraditions.

Bad theology and crooked philosophy.

Lots of exposition, but everything seemed to wrap up abruptly. Religion in this novel is generally portrayed as a brutal, ignorant force. Unlike great authors, Saramago never offers much room for interpretation or the possibility of being wrong or even in doubt.

And that’s saying a lot because the main character is Jesus Christ, who you’d think would be a pretty dynamic character.
