Publishers Description America s favorite storyteller reads the world s greatest story. Garrison Keillor and Dan Johnson both grew up in the bosom of fundamentalism. Their shared love of the Bible and its stories led to this collaboration, which blends details from all the gospels into a single book-length story. Keillor narrates the biography of this amazing man, Jesus, from the slum of Nazareth in the province of Galilee, who confounded dignitaries, healed the sick, and taught those who would listen. He claimed to be God, and that through his death God would graciously forgive the offenses of all who accept this. His story is the foundation from which Christianity has developed, stumbled, and evolved. Centuries ago, early Christians listened as the Bible was read to them. This new recording continues that tradition with a conversational translation performed by America s favorite storyteller."

Reviews - What do customers think about The Gospel of Jesus?
The Gospel of Jesus Feb 22, 2008
A wonderful compilation and reading of the words and works of Jesus. At first I was a bit hesitant to purchase a reading of the Gospel by the dramatic voice and personality of Mr. Keillor. I was very pleasantly surprised and grateful, however, to find that he completely allows the story to speak for itself. The pacing is perfect and gives one time to think about the spiritual significance of the words. I have listened over and over and will continue to do so for years to come. The perfect gift for one who has everything, and a great bargain, even if one pays full-price!
new testament finally told by a story teller Apr 8, 2007
This is great: I borrowed this from the library and now I'm buying it. Very understandable and easy to listen to. He draws you into the story and makes you feel as if you are there, as he always does. Wish he would do the old testament, too!
WOW! Feb 4, 2007
I wasn't sure what to expect. I feared that inventing a "Gospel of Jesus" would trivialize the message, yet, this is wonderful! I found it almost meditative, prayerful. I do so appreciate that it "tells the old, old story that I have loved the best."
The Gospel of John Jan 12, 2007
I liked it quite a bit. Garrison Keillor's style of reading helps to bring out the peaceful nature of Jesus. I did wish at times that he would emote a bit more, however. I also wished he wouldn't have put quite so many pauses in the sentences. But other than that, I was quite inspired by his reading.
the Gospel of Jesus by Daniel L. Johnson Jul 1, 2006
Garrison Keillor has the perfect voice for reading the Gospel of Jesus. it is a pleasure to listen to and easy to follow, and would be a perfect introduction for someone wanting to find out what the Gospels actually say. there is no pretension or 'religiosity'; it is just a simple narrative. excellent!
