It was a struggling family, which experienced the shame of eviction during his childhood.

Jesus: A New Understanding of God's So. This disappointing prequel to Girzone's bestseller Joshua imagines Christ's childhood in a contemporary setting. I love all of Joseph Girzone's books as I have a number of them

Jesus: A New Understanding of God's Son. Joseph F. Girzone. In the town of Sharon, a poor family moves into a ramshackle house. Joseph, the father, is a master carpenter; Miriam is the mother whose "whole life centered around her two men"; and Joshua is the kind, obedient 11-year-old son, wise beyond his years. I love all of Joseph Girzone's books as I have a number of them. They are written as they are perceived by mankind with a heart and some spiritual insight.

Drawing on a lifetime of study and reflection, the author of the Joshua series presents his long-awaited, revelatory, and deeply personal work on Jesus.In his immensely popular Joshua novels, Joseph Girzone depicted Jesus in the modern-day world, using compelling fiction to elucidate Jesus’ message and teachings. Now Girzone provides a powerful new perspective on Jesus. Based on scripture and written in Girzone’s lively, non-doctrinal style, it brings the theology that animates his fiction into vibrant focus. Girzone combines the gospel accounts of Jesus’ life, personal anecdotes, tales from the Bible, and stories he has gathered from people around the world to create an uncommon and profoundly inspiring portrait. He writes with candor and grace about the revelations that shape his beliefs and the mysteries that continue to intrigue him. The definitive statement of Girzone’s views on Jesus’ mission on earth and its meaning for today’s readers, Jesus is Girzone’s magnum opus.

Growing up Catholic and as a graduate of Catholic schools, I found this book extremely enlightening. I had actually learned a lot of these interpretations in school and through the priest at my current church. I find it sad that so many grow up Catholic and never know Jesus the way the author describes. The book seemed to bring all of my understanding of Jesus to the forefront to completely round out my faith. I highly recommend this book especially for those who grew up Catholic but have never felt close to Jesus or feel they need a better understanding. I can't wait to read it again, just like all of the other Joseph Girzone books I've read! After Joshua (of course), this is my favorite.

I read Fr. Girzone's Joshua series many years ago, and found it very powerful and inspiring. This book, in which he has collected his many reflections and talks on Jesus as a human being, is a wonderful help in developing a more intimate relationship with God's Son. It follows the life of Jesus chronologically in a homey, personal way that makes you feel his humanity. Highly recommended.

This is the best book I have read about Jesus in years. Fr. Grizone brings him to life like no one else has and in doing so helped me become even more closer to Jesus. After reading this book I have never felt so close to our Lord. It has changed my life. Thank you Joseph Grizone you are a true gift from God and an Angel on earth.

This book reveals the events of life of Jesus, The subject material is not new but the many insights that Joseph shares, all go to make it a really great read!
It’s not meant as a text on the life of Jesus, but a story about the person and life of Jesus. The twist in this is that his book goes past what the Bible translators say, the bible tell us about the person Jesus and events. So Joseph masterfully throughout the book introduces background and places you in a position to get an alternate view point, this all helps in the process of revealing Jesus, so it is a plausible retelling of The Bible stories of Jesus.
Overall: Joseph’s Roman Catholic heritage aside, it’s a book I recommend. As it makes me thirsty to delve into the Bible stories of Jesus, to seek out the person Jesus

It has been refreshing to read about such a mystical, mysterious time from the perspective of a man who has an intimate understanding of the Bible.

I recommend this book to anyone who is looking for a deeper understanding of Jesus. I have been searching for a way back to Him and this book bridged the gap from my alternative spirituality to the profound love of Jesus.

Excellent book. You will understand more about Jesus and His teachings. Don't miss this important book and it's message.

If any one ever wanted to "know" Jesus better, outside of Scripture this is fairly decent. The material grips the reader and does not let go. After reading the material the reader cannot help but feel closer to Christ, and actually feel that they are a part of Christ and Christ is a part of them.
This is a wonderful book that has given me a new perspective on the Gospels and the life of Jesus. Girzone has a wonderful style that is both engaging and informative. I highly recommend this book for anyone who is interested in exploring the context versus just the content of the Gospels.
