an excellent book

It is an excellent book to visualize every detail of Jesus' life.

A light shining in darkness...

I am usually a critic of "Life of Christ" stories. It's easy for me to mount my soap box and say, "If one wants to learn of the life of Jesus, read the gospels." However, this book was different. Oursler remains faithful to the biblical accounts of the life of Jesus, weaving the material from the four evangelists together to produce a truly great narrative. For those thirsty for some reading on the life of the Lord, I would certainly still point them first (and always) to the Scripture; however, I must admit that, regarding Oursler's narrative, there is some value to be gained from the stirring of the heart this story produces. Highly recommended for all -- both young and old.

Great for teens who know nothing about Jeus Christ.

Read this book out loud to your family and use it for discussions about the life of Jesus Christ. I have a 13 year old son who knew very little about Jesus, and now has a simple but deep grasp of the story. It has lead to talk about Jesus' miracles, His inspirational teaching of morality, and His resurrection. This book is accurate in every particular to the gospel of Mark. Oursler does a good job of describing the facts of the gospel in novel form so that the people come alive again. The language is challenging and specific, though not complicated. Oursler knows the definitive meanings of words and uses them well, but puts them in understandable context. One small remark that might be construed as a complaint: the physical descriptions of Jesus are true to the classical western paintings of a brown haired man with light eyes. Small quibble, not important. Oursler captures the spirit of the man and the glory of God in Him. If you need to "read" the Bible story before beginning your study of the Word, this book will give you a clear picture of the life and teachings of the Master. Enjoy!

The historical Jesus comes alive!

The Greatest Story Ever Told is one of the most compelling books on the life of Christ I have ever read. Above that, Edward Herrmann's reading is artful and compelling. It's an excellent introduction to your friends who don't know Jesus, and for yourself if you want to grow in your understanding of the greatest man that ever lived.

This is one of the best books I've ever read.

This book is great. It really brings the story to life. It fills in details and emotions that many people wonder about when reading the Bible. It's also very inspirational, and an awesome story. It's one of those books that everyone should read and reread.
