"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. 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 Gospel as revealed to me, 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.
