The Bodine ranch and resort in western Montana is a family business, an idyllic spot for vacationers. A little over thirty thousand acres and home to four generations, it's kept running by Bodine Longbow with the help of a large staff, including new hire Callen Skinner. There was another member of the family once: Bodine's aunt, Alice, who ran off before Bodine was born. She never returned, and the Longbows don't talk about her much. The younger ones, who never met her, quietly presume she's dead.

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...

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.

Any additional comments?

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