Publisher's Summary

The Gospel as Revealed to Me (formerly "The Poem of the Man-God") is the title of the new edition of Maria Valtorta's main work. The new English edition is similar to the original Italian both for the title and for the subdivision in 10 volumes.

It narrates the birth and childhood of the Virgin Mary and her Son, Jesus; the three years of Jesus' public life, forming the largest section; his passion, death, resurrection, and ascension; the beginnings of the Church; and the assumption of Mary.

In lofty literary style, the work describes landscapes, environments, people, and events with the vividness of graphic depiction. It presents characters and situations with introspective insight and sets forth moments of joy or drama with the feeling of someone really taking part in them. It provides information on the characteristics of settings, customs, rites, and cultures with convincing detail.

By way of a gripping account of the Redeemer's earthly life, especially through discourse and dialogue, the work sheds light upon the whole doctrine of Christianity in keeping with Catholic orthodoxy.

Moving and beautifully read

Wow! This book is unlike like anything I’ve ever read. Listening to it, felt like being right with with Jesus and Mary, the Apostles, and the people that they taught and healed, as it happened. The narration was beautiful.

Moving rendition of the hidden life of Christ

A book of this type is difficult reading and even more difficult to critique. The words of a mystic should always be taken with consideration that they are an interpretation of what was revealed to the mystic, and should not be taken directly as if those same words were given directly to the reader by God. However, they can still be uplifting and good for the soul when taken as the revelation given to the person whom it was revealed.

Listening to this was, for me, like visiting with Christ himself. I've been moved and uplifted by these words.

The narrator did a good job of reading a book that was written as a collection of journal entries. There are some spots that were probably intended to be edited out of the recording but overall the narrator was good also.
