The Poem of the Man-God (Volume 2)

It narrates the birth and childhood of the Virgin Mary and her Son Jesus; the three years of Jesus public life (form-ing 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. The greatly-revered Gabriele M. Allegra, who highly esteemed Valtorta s work, wrote, "Gifts of nature and mystical gifts harmoniously joined together account for this masterpiece of Italian religious literature and perhaps I should say of Christian literature on a world level. The Poem of the Man-God, a worldwide success of spiritual literature, is now available in English. It is an inspired work or, as some say, a "gospel which neither replaces nor changes the Gospel, but rather narrates it, integrating and illuminating it, for the purpose of reviving in men s hearts love for Christ and his Mother. The Poem of the Man-God is a series consisting of five volumes. Volume one contains a short but notable biographical sketch of Maria Valtorta
