    Would you try another book from Joel C. Rosenberg and/or Patrick G. Lawlor?

    I doubt it.


    What was most disappointing about Joel C. Rosenberg’s story?

    The story is so slow! I am up to chapter 20 and something is only just starting to happen!


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Patrick G. Lawlor?

    Christopher Lane - he read


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Boredom - if I hadn't paid for it, I would stop listening to it.


    Any additional comments?

    This is the 2nd Joel C Rosenberg I have listened to. The Tehran Initiative was excellent and I listened to it twice! I was excited about listening to another Rosenberg book, but this has been a grave disappointment. The story moves so slowly - I keep waiting for something to happen. I doubt I will try another Rosenberg book unless it is personally recommended by someone I know.

    When Conrad Davis crashes his car, he should be dead. Instead, he finds himself in a parallel universe with a single difference from ours - Jesus Christ did not come 2000 years ago! Conrad finds himself in the midst of events surrounding a man named Eli - events that carry strong contemporary echoes of the life of Jesus. Following Eli, Conrad is challenged to accept what he witnesses, just as Christ’s apostles must have been challenged. Eli gives a unique twist to a question many people have asked themselves over the past two millennia: How would I react if I lived in the time of Jesus?

    As always, another excellent Bill Myers book. Thought provoking and stimulating. A lot to reflect on while listening to this. Love Bill Myers' work, and love Richard Ferrone's narration.

    A small section of vine with bloodstained thorns has been encased in candle wax for centuries - and some believe the blood came from Christ. Convicted killer and death-row inmate Michael Coleman agrees to have the genes from the mysterious blood planted into his body. The results are so astonishing that the research must continue outside prison walls. But nobody can predict what will happen when Coleman assumes a new identity and reenters society. Blood of Heaven delves deep into the human heart and examines the very nature of good versus evil.

    Every single Bill Myers book I have read or listened to has been amazingly brilliant! Richard Ferrone is a very good narrator too. Is is the kind of book I will listen to again.

    Kent Anthony is a brilliant software engineer who is cashing in on a brilliant career. He's finally living the idyllic life, far from thoughts of theft and murder and other kinds of horrible criminal behavior. He's left his past far behind.... or so he thinks. This story will bring you face to face with a hidden world more real than most people ever realize; a world where the unseen is more powerful than anything seen.

    Story
    If you could sum up Heaven's Wager in three words, what would they be?

    Can't do it in 3 words, but just like Frank Peretti's "This present darkness", it is an excellent reminder that the spiritual world is just as real as the physical.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Didn't have a favorite really; liked the relationship between Helen and her maker though. Encouraged me to refocus my life on what REALLY matters


    Which character – as performed by Tim Gregory – was your favorite?

    Wasnt really into Tim Gregory as a narrator at first, but he grew on me half way through the book. Think he was pretty good with Kent's character though.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No. There is a lot to think about in this book. I liked taking breaks to digest the story and even more, to reflect on life in light of this story.


    Any additional comments?

    Brilliant book - one of the best I have ever listened to.

    Imagine answering your cell phone one day to a male voice that gives you three minutes to confess your sin. If you don't, the madman, Slater, will blow your car to smithereens. You barely manage to exit heavy traffic and ditch the car when, precisely three minutes later, your car blows sky high. The media and police descend on the scene; your world has just changed forever.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes! This book held my attention from start to end. The plot is exciting and the ending was totally unexpected. Am going to listen to the whole thing again in light of the ending!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Kevin.


    Have you listened to any of Rob Lamont’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No, but he is an amazing narrator! Very impressed with him - way better than some others I have heard since joining Audible.
