Overview

When the Great Spirit Walked Among Us retells the story of the Gospels from one great oral storytelling tradition to another. With the feel of the indigenous oral storytellers, Terry Wildman captures the beauty and cadence of an oral story in written form. Imagine the story of Jesus from four different Gospels combined into a single narrative and retold for Native Americans and all English speaking First Nations Peoples. The surprise felt by many, even those who have no Native American heritage, is the profound effect on the reader. Hearing the familiar story told with a different voice, an indigenous voice, opens a world of wonderful insights and meanings. This is an elegant retelling of the Gospel story that is sure to engage and excite a broad spectrum of readers. To honor and show the beauty of the Native American tradition, all the names are translated by their original language meaning, and so Abraham is Father Of Many Nations, Jesus is Creator Sets Free, and Peter is Stands On The Rock. This is the second book of the First Nations Version Project by this author. firstnationsversion.com
