Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Garrison Keillor

Philosophy & Religion • 7.25 hrs. • Audio Program • © 1996

The repetition in the four Synoptic Gospels is edited out in this production to create a coherent story of Jesus’s time on earth. Sentences are also “cleaned up” for flow, revealing a narrative more beautiful and moving than any previous condensation or abstract. Best of all, the sonorous Garrison Keillor was recruited to work his usual magic on the English language, and he doesn’t disappoint. His impeccable diction is only the beginning—near perfect phrasing expresses his artist’s sensibilities and deep appreciation of one of the greatest stories in any language or culture. Even better, the production is packaged in a sensible retail pak with a detailed table of contents and a subject index that will further satisfy what’s sure to be a huge range of listeners. T.W.
