Product Description

About the Author

Sometimes admitting you know nothing is the only way to see what you do know. Retired college professor C. L. Francisco’s faith reemerged several years ago after a time of struggle and radical doubt. A Southern Baptist childhood, a liberal college education in the midst of late 60’s protest movements, a year at Swiss L’Abri, several years as an art therapist in an inner city psychiatric unit, and a PhD in world religions all contributed to the confusion of her early life. But as a woman whose life had always been grounded in faith, she determined to begin her search anew. Oddly enough, it was the voice of non-human nature that spoke most clearly—that and a stubborn attachment to C. S. Lewis’ fiction. The whispers were faint at first, and often resulted in dead ends, but when they finally spoke clear, she found herself in the presence of the Christ who lives beyond all walls. The Gospel According to Yeshua’s Cat emerged from Francisco’s desire to offer fellow strugglers a fresh perspective on Jesus of Nazareth. The book’s feline narrator speaks with the wise voice of a young cat whose death after a devastating wildfire provided Francisco with the impetus to begin the book.

This book for me is a sheer delight. I am still reading it. I love the natural wisdom of Mari the cat and the I enjoy the lovely perspective of seeing Jesus in his natural everyday life. Artfully and insightfully written, a talented writer.
I savour each chapter and will be a little sad when it is finished!

A Cat For All Seasons 9 Oct. 2013
By heypancho - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Possibly the most original extra-biblical account of Jesus' life I've ever read! (Okay-- the author's my sister, but it's still true.) It's fresh, and Mari's (the cat's) perspective is objective and clear, without all the baggage of a human trying to tell the same story. New Testament characters that were previously rather dry and opaque become remarkably alive as they are seen through the eyes of a cat, especially when they react to her. Though obviously a fantasy, I had no problem at all believing that such communication was possible. The truths communicated are no less eternal when seen through an animal's eyes. This book really does stand with such fiction as C.S Lewis' books. An enjoyable, fascinating read!

A modern-classic of christian thought, yet far less stuffy and far more insightful 9 Oct. 2013
By J Lambert Brooks - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
The Gospel according to Yeshua's cat is one the more refreshing, accessible, and human tellings of an often misused and misunderstood text. It's wonderfully ironic that God has used donkeys, murderers, and outcasts of every kind to lead people to His love. I guess It's perfectly fitting and within character to now see Him alive through the eyes of a lowly cat! C.L. Francisco has written a modern-classic of christian thought, yet far less stuffy and far more insightful. It's well worth the read.

Beautiful, astonishing... like Narnia, or The Shack, yet all it's own. 6 Oct. 2013
By Wendy Francisco - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
CL Francisco has created an astonishing tale of the Gospel from the point of view of a little cat who is tucked in the robes of Jesus. It is like Narnia and the Shack, and yet all its own. Amazing. You will need Kleenex.

Cat-Like Simplicity 11 Oct. 2013
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
He rescued her from a pack of wild dogs and gave her the gift of language. Now Mari tells of her life with Jesus. Her simple trust serves as a model for the kind of faith that changes hearts.

The author deftly weaves insightful translations of well-known passages from the gospels, characters from her own imagination, and a story of devotion between a man and a cat. While the book touches on themes such as hatred and marginalization, God's deep love and compassion shine throughout it.

Puts things in perspective 22 Oct. 2013
By David Kirkey - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The strangest thing is that it seems to focus me on Jesus's real message far better than any of my other religious training. Some will say that it is blasphemy, but if it helps even one person, it can not be bad. Read it and see if it opens you mind.
