Reviews - What do customers think about Jesus, His Life and Teachings: As Told to Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John?
Jesus, His Life and Teachings Jan 12, 2007
Fr. Girzone provides a well rounded theology in his presentations of the teachings of Christ. He takes the writings of the Gospels and places them into a context that we as God's people can use and follow in our everyday life. At times Fr. Girzone may not follow the conservative message that is taught in our modern church, but he does provide thought provoking ideas that lead to a better concept of what Jesus was trying to tell us. I recommend any book written by Fr. Girzone.
Fusion of Gospels Sep 26, 2005
I expected some commentary from Girzone when I got the book from the library. But it's basically just a fusion of the 4 gospels into 1 story. It seemed true to the originals; no surprises. I enjoyed it.
Simple and Beautiful Aug 9, 2001
This book is a beautiful and simple way to read about Jesus' life. Great for people who find it hard to follow the Bible and also for those who need a fresh look at the life of Jesus.
All of the Girzone books I have read are wonderful. So refreshing and uplifting. Also, easy to read and understand.
I highly recommend this book.
The Gospels Come Alive! Jun 16, 2000
Having read all of Fr. Girzone's other books, I thirst for each of his new offerings. This book did not disappoint me. His ability to inject warmth and a personal perspective transform the Gospels from a more historical context to making the reader feel as though they were part of a beautiful story.
Anyone who has felt a bit arm's length when reading Scripture will find that they are welcomed into God's story as part of it. Fr. Girzone's writings continue to help bring my God closer to me.....and for that I thank him.....eternally.
Matt, Mark, Luke, John,& Joseph Girzone tell Jesus' Story May 17, 2000
It is a wonderful read! The story of Jesus pooled together by Fr. Girzone and the Friends of Jesus, Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. A smooth telling of the life of Jesus that allows one who is a "beginner" or "expert" of the Gospels to envision the life of Jesus through a flowing account.
