Writer and director Bill Myers has won over 40 national and international awards and sold more than four million copies of his books and videos worldwide. In Eli, he creates a fascinating scenario that reaches to the heart of Christian faith.
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? Richard Ferrone’s thoughtful narration captures the true conflict of a man’s struggle with the decision to give his life over to Christ.

Eli held my attention, but it was not my favorite book. It did make me think about my relationship with Christ, & how I show my faith.
Eli ranks on my top 10! Great story and parallels!
The unending love of God. Jesus' story brought into todays society struggles.
Richard Ferrone is rate one of my top 5 narrators!
Even with the similarities of scripture, the story was unpredictable and compelling!
So talented! Love it!
As with all audio books, the narrator adds his own "tone" to this book. I'm not sure I would interpreted some the scenes the way the narrator did, but it was good, none the less.
Shared the life of Jesus in a way that relates to the 21st Century without compromising the message as it appears in the Bible.
His interpretation of the emotions behind the story.
I would have to say Julia. She is the character that seemed to need encouragement!
This book was very well written and presents a interesting approach to sharing the Gospel of Jesus. I'm considering sharing this book with a young woman who is seeking to know 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.
