What the Critics Say

"Richly textured and filled with familiar New Testament figures, their novel also meticulously describes the political climate of the time, including the conflicts between the Romans, Zealots, and Hasmodeans. More than a simple love story, given miracles, martyrdom, and men on a mission, this is the perfect tale for readers who enjoy such biblical epics as Henryk Sienkiewicz’s Quo Vadis, Lew Wallace’s Ben Hur, and Lloyd C. Douglas’ The Robe." (Booklist)

    "PROOF OF CHRIST'S RESURRECTION"

    "Great Book!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Another great book by two great authors! I would recommend this to anyone who likes historical fiction. It is well written and the orator does a nice job reading it. I am really looking forward to the next one in the series!

    Story
    "uninspired"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    This is the first Janette Oke book I've ever read that's disappointed me. Perhaps Davis Bunn is the problem. As I read the story I just wanted it to end.


    What was most disappointing about T. Davis Bunn and Janette Oke ’s story?

    The premise of two grown men becoming obsessed with a woman they hardly glanced was unbelievable. The connection between the Bible and fictional characters was flimsy.

    Story
    "Can't open Audible from desk top, disappointed."
    Where does The Hidden Flame rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Don't know, can't listen.


    Has The Hidden Flame turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Turned me off of Auible.com


    Would you be willing to try another one of Susan Lyons’s performances?

    Not from Audible.com


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No, I don't have that much time, but would have loved to listen!


    Any additional comments?

    Can't listen, won't download to MP3 player despite customer service. Not a good experience.
