I will listen to this book many times. For extreme fundamentalists, there may be some issues, none of which are significant. Mostly because the put the historical evidence in line with what the bible states. Also, most Christians feel the Jesus started his public life at 30, but this references starts his public life at 33. It also puts many of the events into some contect. For everyone else, this is an amazing historical reference to align the biblical life of Jesus on earth with the historical evidence available. In many respects it reminds me of Og Mandino's "The Christ Commission." On the other hand, having a historical alignment makes understanding the times and the events even more prolific.
I'd suggest The Christ Commission by Og Mandino (regretfully not availablel here). Mr. Og was a pen pal of mine before his passing. We first communicated when I just wanted to thank him for my favorite book (The Greatest Miracle In The World). When I read The Christ Commission, it gave me a great understanding of the faith of those that followed Christ in the times immediately following his time physically here. I have strove to do the same ever since.
Perhaps the inflections of the author, also a historian and public figure.
After reading some reviews, I thought it had potential, and it did. The problem is that the pectoral was not met. Sorry ended too soon and let too much unsaid and unanswered. It chose poorly.
No, but yes to the author.
None. Just not enough completeness to the story to find something worthy of calling a favorite.
Missed opportunity to say the least.
No one I know would find this book worth the time of listening to. It was boring and after continuing attempts to listen through following all the claims of greatness, I finally gave up.
I'm not really sure what the genre of this book is, but it went nowhere in the chapters I read. There was nothing worth spending more time on it.
The narrator was acceptable, but the story itself was so bad that I finally just gave up on it. Ms. Battoe's reading was pleasant enough and fit with I could gather of the character of the story.
I found nothing redeeming of this book. It was full of something, but nothing appealing or worth the time I had already spent. Paying for this torture should be illegal.
Perfect, perfect, perfect.
A seamless progressions from the first two books in the trilogy. It just made sense from where it was to where It picked up and ended.
Jay was AWESOME as always. Not only in the book trilogy, but also in the three films (soon to be four and don't expect anything less), and the miniseries of seven parables. David Gregory has put together the Perfect message.
Perfect from the start, but it takes a Perfect Stranger to keep you on the right road.
My only regret is that this is the end of the trilogy. I'm hoping that the author continues to give us stories that include Jay and his interaction with people today.
