A Powerful Novelization from Best-Selling Author Angela Hunt
Epic in scope yet deeply personal, this novelization offers a unique perspective on the story of the resurrection.
Roman Tribune Clavius is assigned by Pilate to keep the radical followers of the recently executed Yeshua from stealing the body and inciting revolution. When the body goes missing despite his precautions, Clavius must hunt it down. His investigation leads him from the halls of Herod Antipas to the Garden of Gethsemane and brings him in touch with believer and doubter alike. But as the body still remains missing, Clavius commits to a quest for the truth - and answers that will not only shake his life but echo throughout all of history.

This my first time listening to christian audio audio book and it did not disappoint.
I very much enjoyed how the book was told from a 2 person simultaneous situation. I find it amazing that a new life was brought to the most beautiful but also best know stories of all time. Having to come up with a unique presentation and then a high quality telling of the greatest story ever told.
I will definitely see the movie even though it cannot possibly compare to this book. This was a very interesting telling of the events of the cross. The author explains the creative liberties at the end so the reader/listener should not be critical is perceived inaccuracies.
I enjoyed the premise of the book and the idea that the body of Christ, after the Resurrection, would have been searched for by the Romans so as to prove He was just an ordinary man. The book has a lot more to it than the movie, with additional characters and insight into their personalities. I think in both, although more so in the movie, the sheer awe of seeing this Man, whom you helped to kill, is now alive and walking the earth again, is missing, but the writer gets close to it in the book.
Dreamer and Weaver of Dreams - which means I like some fiction especially if it fits my world view: there is evil in the world and good must ALWAYS overcome it.
Read this and believe. The vivid power of the Risen Jesus is here but handled with human hands. The narrative is beautiful and it's easy to come to love all the characters for who they are. Rachel and Clavius are real somehow despite their fiction. But best the love story only augmented the Love Story of the Creator for His creation especially... man
"Different and interesting perspective"
enjoyed the unusual telling of the resurrection story from the perspective of a hebrew girl and roman tribune. Intend seeing the film version.
