Publisher's Summary

Author E.G. Lewis has paid careful attention to detail, providing a carefully studied historical background and sketching a consistent view of the unknown with a masterly pen. Follow the saga of Rivkah who accompanied her father to Bethlehem where she held Mary's newborn son. Meet Shemu'el, the young man she loves. Follow them as they convert to the Way of Yeshua. You'll encounter a cast of fascinating, multi-dimensional characters and share the high points of early Christianity as they move from Jerusalem to Antioch and eventually to Rome.

The ever-popular Seeds of Christianity Series provides a heartfelt retelling of the lives of those early believers who formed the soil that yielded a rich crop still being harvested today. Set against a backdrop of biblically and historically accurate events, these epic tales entertain, educate, and inspire.

    "hard to listen to"

    I really enjoyed the story, but it was hard to listen to at times. I could tell the reader was reading. It made conversations hard to understand.

    "Seeds of Christianity"
    What disappointed you about Seeds of Christianity 4-Book Boxed Set?

    The first book, Witness, was a good story line that kept me listening even though I was not pleased with the narrator


    Would you ever listen to anything by E. G. Lewis again?

    Not with the same narrator - I have decided to not listen to the rest after making it only a few chapters into the second book.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Ruth Elsbree’s performances?

    Never


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Yes, I liked the first book for it's story line - I wanted to be able to listen to the other 3 but could not get into the second book. It was not good enough to endure the narrator.


    Any additional comments?

    I am disappointed

    "Loved this set!!"

    The author did an excellent job of capturing the authenticity of the time period. Biblically and historically correct.

    Story
    "Great set of Christian novels."
    If you could sum up Seeds of Christianity 4-Book Boxed Set in three words, what would they be?

    I enjoyed this set of books and thought the narration was excellent. I do not usually buy novels but usually buy audio books on Christianity and Christian history and was surprised how much this set of books impacted my perspective of Christian faith and the trials that many people in the first century faced. The books also gave good illustrations of how Christians are to interact and treat other people who are going through trials. This set of books really increased my interest in Christian novels and I had a hard time turning off my phone as I listened to the books on bluetooth.


    What other book might you compare Seeds of Christianity 4-Book Boxed Set to and why?

    I really believe that although the set of books are a novel, they really bring out what Christians believe and how they God works through their lives.


    What does Ruth Elsbree bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Great narration, she made the book come alive. As stated before, I rarely buy novels and the narrator along with a good set of books really changed my outlook on novels.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    The set of books did bring out empathy when I felt what some of the characters went through as they found answers in Jesus Christ and the Christian fellowship.

    "Outstanding Set of Books!"

    It was very hard to shut down the program at bedtime. This is one of the best examples of Biblical Historical Fiction that I have read (or rather listened to) in a long time. I highly recommend this outstanding set of books!!!

    "First audio book series I ever completed"

    This series was given to me as a gift and once I started listening to it I could not stop. I have repeatedly found myself arrived at my destination and not wanting to get out of my vehicle & stop the audio. The narration by Ruth Elsbree was excellent and held my attention, even during my frequent 10 hour long drives. The many characters were well voice separated, making the story easy to follow or pick back up. The story made me laugh cry think and give me knowledge about the beginning of Christianity that I never would have otherwise taken the time to learn.

    "Excellent series!"

    The Seeds of Christianity books were absolutely wonderful historical fiction! What a realistic trip throughout Bethlehem, Jerusalem and beyond, we traveled with Rivkah and her family. It was fascinating to see how E. Lewis intertwined her life with that of Jesus, Mary, other Biblical characters and various apostles.

    Ruth Elsbree did a phenomenal job narrating these books! She brought all the characters to life in such realistic ways. Her voice became like a dear, soothing friend. Wonderful!

    "Worst narrator EVER!"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Probably nothing.


    What could E. G. Lewis have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    I turned this book off so many times because of the terrible reading. The only way I could listen to it was at 1.25x speed. For a book this long, hire a professional narrator. Also try using contractions. "Can not" or "Do not" sound more natural as "can't" and "don't"


    Would you be willing to try another one of Ruth Elsbree’s performances?

    Not if you paid me!


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Seeds of Christianity 4-Book Boxed Set?

    I prefer not to have to hear about someone "pleasuring" themselves in Christian fiction.

    "ok, but I've read better"

    the performance was by far the worst. I struggled with this set, but finished bc the content was good. I am protestant and picked up on the Catholic undertones.
