The gospel of John by Philip Saville( visu )
29 editions published between 2003 and 2013 in English and held by 1,005 libraries worldwide
This feature film on the life, death and resurrection of Jesus is adapted precisely word for word from The Good News Translation Bible. Contains the exclusive never-before-seen two hour version. An epic in the spirit of The Passion of the Christ, this widely acclaimed motion picture is a meticulous recreation of the turbulent era of Jesus and the events that changed the course of history! Narrated by Golden Globe nominee Christopher Plummer (Best Supporting Actor, American Tragedy, 2000), it's the bold and powerful story of Jesus as told by his disciple John. The best-loved but least understood of the gospels, John presents a uniquely human portrait of courage and passion encompassing Jesus' entire three-year ministry, the final years of his life. Intimate and reflective, The Gospel of John offers an unparalleled opportunity to experience the incomparable life and times of Jesus Christ! - Container
