Product Description

There are countless paths to follow when seeking spiritual guidance, but thousands of years of religion and theology cannot replace the premier example that Jesus himself set. In A Portrait of Jesus, bestselling writer Joseph Girzone recaptures the truth of Jesus that is presented in the Gospels and gives a compelling vision of the person Jesus' contemporaries must have known. In his most powerful work yet, Girzone seeks to personify Christ in the minds of readers by asking some simple questions: "What did people see in Jesus as he walked down the street? How did he approach others and what would these people take away from meeting him? What do his actions tell us about how we can live our lives today?" It is Girzone's empowering and loving understanding of the heart of Christianity that will make A Portrait of Jesus a groundbreaking classic in the tradition of his bestselling books, Joshua and Never Alone.

    I rented this book from the local library to write a paper for my World Religions class. I've never read a book from this author. I feel in love with this book and could not stop reading it. I now plan on buying the book for my own personal library. It would be a great tool for a new believer.

    The author of this book is a retired Catholic priest. He manages, in spite of some obvious "lapses" into orthodoxy, to construct a picture of Jesus which is simple, but not simpleminded. His approach is to discuss Jesus as one might envision him under several of the principal themes of his ministry, such as God's abiding love for humanity. Anyone looking to this work for a theological discussion of Jesus' teachings will be disappointed. But that is not Fr. Girzone's purpose. Instead, he reaches back, beyond the centuries of doctrinal accretions which have all but buried Jesus, to paint a portrait of the human figure to whom so many were attracted, and who now seems altogether missing from what calls itself "Christianity" in our time. The portrait is essentially a sketch, incomplete and perhaps not amenable to completion, except by each of us individually, out of a commitment to Jesus which, if it is to be vital and sustaining, must necessarily be intimate. That may well be Fr. Girzone's great insight.

    Joseph Girzone makes reading a book a spiritual experience. Joshua was a story that made Jesus become real for me. I've read it three times. A Portrait of Jesus does it all over again but in a different perspective. Mr. Girzone describes in detail along with scripture who the true Jesus is and what he really is all about. His message and the depth of his love for ALL God's children. Anybody really wanting to acheive a closer personal relationship with God's Son needs to own this book and share it with others.
