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.

Deeply moving walk through Jesus' life
This piece is truly a gift. The reader has a way of animating the story of Jesus' life in a way that is breathtaking. His voice is steady and loving and has a depth that I have never heard in a reader. The piece itself weaves the story of Jesus and His folllowers that I think is gem on this earth. I believe it will change your life.
A real blessing
I spend so much time in my car that it’s a true blessing to have these in an audiobook format. I can feel Father Peter’s devotion while he reads and I am very grateful to own this.
