Please don't get me wrong that there is new information that I learned in this book, but there was far more repetition of things I already knew than there was of things I didn't. This is an excellent book for non-believers. In fact the way it was written almost promotes itself to non-Christians. If you have non-Christian or agnostic friends that are interested in a fact based history on Jesus Christ's life then this is the book for them. Established Christians will learn new things from this book as well, but there will be a lot of repetition especially if you are well versed in the Bible.
although liberties were taken on what the thoughts and motivations were of some of the historical moments it was well written and well read.
The book is a must read for every Christian. There are so many details about Jesus's life and death. It was a blessing for me to have read this book.
Man I'm addicted to audible!! I enjoy fiction books a little too much
it's a must read for all those who wonder about the facts from other sources outside the Bible. This will really bring the reader into the culture and truly give you a richly filled historic view of the most iconic person who ever walked this earth.
I enjoyed the narrator even in spite of his using pronunciation of landmarks that I had never heard. It was moving to listen to this story during Holy Week and I learned more about the events leading up to Jesus' crucifixion such as the emphasis on getting Jesus to say something blasphemous. Excellent
