    This is a dangerous tale of times past... a love story full of deep seduction. A story of terrible longing and bold sacrifice. Then as now, evil begins its courtship cloaked in light. And the heart embraces what it should flee, forgetting it once had a truer lover. With a kiss, evil will ravage body, soul, and mind. Yet there remains hope, because the heart knows no bounds.

    Bethany says: "Breathtaking"
    "Not one of Ted Dekker's best"
    Overall

    I have listened to several of Mr. Dekker's books and this one, while good, is definately not his best. It took over half the book to get to the best part of the story. Seems to be a prequil to the Red, White and Black Trilogy but I am only guessing on that. The best part of the book is the last two hours after all the character development is done. If you like Ted, you will like this book.

    near the bottom


    What other book might you compare Witness to and why?

    None comes to mind.


    What didn’t you like about Ruth Elsbree’s performance?

    I could not finish listening to it. I really tried but her style is not for me. Got on my nerves.


    If you could take any character from Witness out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    The main character


    Any additional comments?

    The book itself is pretty good. The narrator made the book impossible for me to finish.

    Raised like sisters, Mariamne and Salome are indulged with riches and learning - a rare thing for females in ancient Jerusalem. But Mariamne has a further gift: an illness has left her with the power of prophecy. After seven years in exile, they return to a Judea, where many now believe John the Baptizer is the messiah. Salome too begins to believe, but Mariamne, now called Magdalene, is drawn to his cousin, Yeshu'a, a man touched by the divine in the same way she was during her days of illness.

    Michael Allen says: "Captivating & Thought-Provoking"
    "Just Bad"
    Overall

    If you are a Christian, please don't waste your money on this. The story uses just about every theory of how Christ fooled everyone into thinking he was the Messiah. The narrative is at times very hard to follow. In my humble opinion it is not very well written fiction but it is complete fiction if you believe the Bible to be true.
