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.

A great continuation of the Gospel

The Maria Valtorta series continues to be an inspiring and faith building listen. Its hard to describe the feelings it brings up. Its like I can glimpse back into Jesus’ time on Earth. I highly recommend the entire series.

Just can't stop

I'm halfway through the series, listening on my commute, and I just can't stop. So real, so vivid, every detail of Jesus' life in the Gospel coming alive. It's like I never really knew Him before, and it's drawing me closer to Him in real life as well. What a gift.
The series must have been a huge undertaking for the narrator, probably a labor of love too.
