For several centuries an isolated mountain village in Mexico has held hidden an amazing secret, an immortal dog that performs miracles of healing. Recorded in ancient Spanish records, it is the dog of Christ, a mongrel stray dog that was present at the crucifixion and which was stabbed by the same spear that pierced the body of the Savior. When a tragedy reveals the dog's existence through a series of miracles accidentally caught on television, it upends the world, destabilizing governments and causing worldwide revolution.

This was one of the best books I ever read! I could not put it down. I passed it onto my mom and she absolutely LOVED it! It was so good I'm sad not to have it anymore.
I really liked the creativity and originality of this story. The story centers around the immortal Dog of Jesus who performs miracles that eventually lead to world revolution. I have not read a story with this much imagination in a while. I really enjoyed the incorporation of our current society and found the story very touching and thoughtful. Even though it is called the Dog of Jesus, this is non-denominational book enjoyable by anyone interested in a rewarding and moving read.
I was hooked when I read the first chapter online. A very interesting premise and a very good story. I would like to see this made into a movie.
I’ve read many books over the years, but this is the first time I’ve encountered a story as unique as this. The Dog of Jesus by Michael P. Sakowski is a tale about a miracle dog that is owned by a little boy named Jesus—but also turns out that the little mongrel is the same dog owned by the boy’s revered namesake. The story opens one windy night in a church, where a priest tends to a dying girl named Rosa. Little did he know that the night will change his life forever. When little Jesus comes in with a new dog, the priest tells the boy to leave it outside, worried about Rosa’s situation. When the little girl starts convulsing and lays still, the priest checks for her pulse and doesn’t notice immediately that the dog has started licking the little girl’s face. To everyone’s surprise, Rosa, whose pulse already stopped, suddenly wakes up. This is the beginning of a series of miracles in the lives of the priest, Jesus, and the dog he named Santo. I love how the narrative flows in the book. I think that Sakowski demonstrated restraint in his storytelling, because other writers have a tendency to preach when they write, especially when they talk about faith. But Sakowski’s writing style is beautiful and inspiring, and not at all preachy. Also, the transition between chapters is suspenseful and makes you want to read one after another as much as you can. The result is that you won’t be able to put down the book. Some readers may be wary in reading a story that’s inclined in religion, but the entire book is absolutely wonderful, and the plot twists are, at best, thought-provoking. I highly recommend Dog of Jesus to anyone who wants to read about kindness, faith, and a beautiful story about a little boy and his dog.
