Book Review: Joseph Girzone


Joseph Girzone writes stories about a modern day Jesus. In his stories we see Joshua (which is the literal translation of Yeshua the true name of Jesus) and his impact on today’s society. A picture of what it might be like if Jesus was alive in physical form today, centered on his force of goodness to the people around him. It is my opinion that reading these books puts an understanding of Jesus in a way that few people can. The books are a connection to Jesus that we can visualize.

Joseph Girzone is actually Father Joseph Girzone.  He was born in 1930 and is still going. He was born in New York, and works today. I have not read all of Girzone’s books, I truly have just found out so much more about him that I am excited to know more and read more. Some of his books I have read multiple times.


Some of my favorite books are:

Joshua: A Parable for Today

Joshua and the Children


Joshua and the City


Joshua The Homecoming


The Messenger


Joshua in the Holy Land


Joshua in a Troubled World


Kara The Lonely Falcon


Girzone has written more than 30 books, all faith centered and all very readable. I have yet to read one I didn’t like. I recommend looking for them at your local library, but many can be found on amazon or other book sites. Goodreads is a good place to start.

When you google Joseph Girzone books, a banner of his books shows up and you can see which book interest you and click on it to find out more about it.

You can purchase his books from:



This link to Catholic publications also sells some of his works.

Father Joseph is getting up in age and is once again a “poor” writer, but it isn’t stopping him. I want to be a writer with that much devotion.

So go enjoy a good read.
