Publisher's Summary

Jesus of Nazareth's announcement that he is the Messiah has blazed through Jerusalem and the surrounding countryside like wildfire. As he travels through Galilee, the crowds follow him, witnessing miracles and healings. Jesus teaches the parable of the lost sheep and the return of the prodigal son. He walks on the water.

But discipleship to Jesus the Messiah has come at a high price for both Simeon and Miriam. Tensions mount when Miriam is faced with a deadly choice: confess her involvement in the events at Joknean Pass and further sacrifice her relationship with her father, or remain silent and sacrifice her friends and fellow disciples to the Romans.

Meanwhile, Ya'abin begins attacking Roman columns in the Judean wilderness, and Mordechai and Marcus unite to face a common threat. But Mordechai has bigger plans than simply ensnaring the Desert Fox; he plots to eliminate the threat Jesus poses to his religion and his family. And if his plans happen to also eliminate Simeon the Javelin, so much the better.

The Kingdom and the Crown, Volume 2: Come unto Me is a story filled with passion and betrayal, action and sacrifice, friendships forged and relationships lost. It is a novel about coming to terms with the demands placed on your heart and about coming unto him.

    "Good story!"

    I was excited to find Gerald Lund's 2nd book in the series become available since I'd enjoyed the characters and the story of his first one, Fishers of Men. I love reading stories that help my understanding of what it may have been like to be living when Jesus lived, so it doesn't have to be a great story for me to enjoy it. It was an interesting story because of the variety of characters and perspectives so I did enjoy it.
    I appreciate Lund's expressed attempt to be accurate to the text. However, in this quest, he chose to quote from the King James Version when Jesus speaks. That really bothered me because I'm pretty sure they did not speak 16th century English in those days, and it makes Jesus' conversations with ordinary people sound so stilted and formal instead of casual and natural, which is much more likely.
    This is not my favorite narrator because he also speaks unnaturally... Very slow and deliberate, with long pauses, even in casual conversations. He has a nice reading voice to listen too, but I didn't like the way he did character voices, especially women and villains.

    Story
    "I was there!"
    Would you listen to Come Unto Me again? Why?

    Would I listen to this book again? I'm not sure. I might read it instead. Sometimes I think the voices in my head are more accurate than that of the narrator. Or, it could be that I've listened to too many books narrated by George Guidall.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The way Gerald Lund develops the characters, real and made up, helps the reader to see themselves, identifying with their challenges and triumphs. He does a beautiful job of taking the teachings of Jesus and painting a picture of what it may have been like to be there and hear him teach in person. The familiar discussions that would have naturally ensued amongst family members and others are portrayed beautifully.

    When I began the book, it was somewhat uncomfortable because of the seeming departure from the style and language of the scriptures. However, once invested in the characters, I was off and running. The details created by the author do much to lend understanding to the circumstances present at the time of Christ.

    As soon as I'm done with this review, the next book in the series will be downloaded onto my phone.

    Please do yourself a favor and listen to, or read this book.

    "Great Story"

    Great story and great reading. I droped rhe overall rating because there were a couple recording issues, probably because it was from a CD set.

    "The recording is messed up in places"

    Good story. I'm enjoying the series, but this recording is messed up in places. It doesn't ruin the story, but it does take you back to reality rather abruptly every once in a while.
