Available for the first time in audio, Fulton Oursler's 1949 novel about the life of Jesus Christ was written with powerful simplicity and set against a rich historical background. Using a fictionalized narrative, Oursler takes events from the Gospels of the New Testament and adds imaginative dialogues and personalities to recreate the first century, while maintaining Biblical integrity. As you experience Christ's nativity, the Holy Family's flight into Egypt, Christ's public ministry, passion, death, and resurrection, you will almost feel as if you were there. With an introduction by Billy Graham.

  • AudioFile Magazine Since 1949 Fulton Oursler's fictional account of the life of Jesus has been a perennial favorite. The author's intent was to remain faithful to the Christ portrayed in the Gospels; thus, this work will probably appeal to those of a more evangelical bent. Edward Herrmann gives a respectable reading. His stately voice has a congenial, soft quality. He gives a controlled dramatic interpretation to the narrative and characters, which aptly portrays mood or personality without being overbearing. M.T.F. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine

    April 15, 1997
    In this highly regarded 1949 account about the life of Jesus, Oursler imbued the New Testament gospels with life, embellishing them with descriptive detail, dialog, and personality. The compelling fictionalized narrative, which remains faithful to the scriptures throughout, can be heard now on cassette via the talents of Tony Award- winning actor Edward Herrmann. Listeners will experience a sense of "being there," as author and narrator capture the essence of the compassionate yet forceful Son of God and his mission amidst the political, religious, and social turmoil of the early first century. This program's messages are timeless and ever relevant and will have wide appeal. Highly recommended for public libraries.--Barbara J. Vaughan, State Univ. Coll. at Buffalo Lib., N.Y.
