Publisher's Summary

Nehemiah, the young son of a Jewish woman, a weaver from Jerusalem, is born and raised among the Jews who didn't return to Jerusalem from the Exile. Educated by Rabbi Kagba, one of the magi present at Jesus' birth thirty years earlier, Nehemiah grows up with the expectation of a soon-coming Messiah. Could the Yeshua of Nazareth, who is walking the earth, reportedly doing miracles, be that Messiah?

When young Nehemiah must travel the long caravan road to Jerusalem, he is charged with an unusual mission - to carry a mysterious object back to the holy city of Jerusalem...an object whose reappearance heralds the Messiah's arrival.

Nehemiah arrives in Jerusalem just as the final events of Jesus' earthly ministry are coming to a climax: The Feast of Dedication, the Triumphal Entry, the last cleansing of the Temple, and culminating at the Last Supper in the Upper Room. Only Nehemiah understands the true sacrifice that is to come as he makes the cup worthy of his Savior.

    "Loved it!"

    I was transported back in time and space. The rich descriptive passages, which, if I was reading myself, I would have hurried over, painted the scene, and enriched my imagination. The change of voices for the characters was ver well done. The book came alive.

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

    Yes. An eye-opener and another level of knowledge of Jesus' mission; another level of knowledge of those who loved and served him, and another level of the activities of the times. It's a great book!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Nehemiah. Because the Lord was with him his entire life.


    Have you listened to any of Tom O'Malley’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No I've not, but I enjoyed his soothing voice.


    If you could rename Take This Cup, what would you call it?

    Nehemiah.


    Any additional comments?

    Great Book!

    "Loved this book, definitely worth the read."
    Would you consider the audio edition of Take This Cup to be better than the print version?

    did not read the print version.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Nehemiah,loved his determination, his loyalty, and his humaness.


    Which character – as performed by Tom O'Malley – was your favorite?

    The rabbi


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

    This book did both make me laugh and cry. Can't wait for the sequel. The research is amazing. I think Ms Rivers is equal to Brock and Bodie Theone in her research and storytelling and means something to me because the Theone's have always been my favorites.

    "LOVE this book!"
    What made the experience of listening to Take This Cup the most enjoyable?

    The reader of the book brought the story to life. Brock & Brodie Thoene have written an excellent story. They truly bring to life what it might have been like to be in Jerusalem during Jesus's time.


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

    Yes, it made me laugh and cry. But hearing of Jesus's final days. The writers and reader made it seem like I was there. Knowing what was to come for Jesus.. I was overwhelmed.

    Get this book!! You won't be disapointed!!

    What did you love best about Take This Cup?

    I love the characters in the story and their development


    How could the performance have been better?

    The sound track for both my husband and I was hard to hear. He could not hear it in the car. and I had to hook it up to my speaker to hear it in the house.


    If you could rename Take This Cup, what would you call it?

    This author has me watching a video in my mind as I read or listen to her books! I have to remind myself that they are fiction.

    "An Inspiration"

    A beautiful story of the heart leading one to a greater love of God. The bravery of the young boy Nehemiah and his journey, inspires the listener to read God's word with true reverence and to seek to know Him and draw closer to Him in the sure knowledge that He loves us more than anyone else.
