Jesus of Nazareth has been preaching in Judea for three years and has gathered many followers with his teachings and miracles. But he has also made enemies who fear his power and his influence and who have conspired to put an end to him by whatever means possible. The family of David ben Joseph continues to follow Jesus, though the Savior's teachings now carry an undercurrent of sorrow and unsettling prophecy.

From the blood-soaked sand of the Roman arena, a divine destiny will rise. For as long as Jonathan Tarquinius can remember, everyone has wanted something from him. His half-brother wants him dead. His master's wife wants his innocence. The gladiator dealers want him to fight - and die - for their greed. Rome's most famous prostitute wants his love. And the gentle slave girl who tends the wounds on his body and the hidden ones on his soul, longs for him to return to his faith.

Lawyer Will Chambers is still reeling from the death of his wife, when he is forced to give up his partnership at a prestigious Washington D.C. law firm. Taking the case of Angus MacCameron, a reverend who has been named in a libel suit, Will sees a chance for redemption. The case seems simple enough, but after a little digging, he finds a vast conspiracy that could shake the very foundations of Christianity. Trial lawyer Craig Parshall’s debut novel is a tense thriller about rediscovering faith and fighting for the truth.

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

I would recommend this book because it is well written. The author creates a compelling story with great characters and a deep meaning. I could not wait to get back to it.

What did you like best about this story?

I found the accuracy of the law matters and the spiritual matters to be very refreshing. I also liked how the intensity built gradually.

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

He adds a certain richness to the characters.

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

This book made me think about truth.

Any additional comments?

Read this book and then read the next in the series. I read them out of order but I still enjoyed them both.

The End Series by New York Times best-selling author Tim LaHaye and Craig Parshall is an epic thrill ride ripped from today's headlines and filtered through Scriptural prophecy. As world events begin setting the stage for the 'end of days' foretold in Revelation, Joshua Jordan must weigh the personal price he must pay to save the nation he loves.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Joshua Jordan of course, he is an old school hero. His tough and gritty persona reminds you of John Wayne with a missile launcher. The story is very well written and captures both the Christian and the cowboy in me. The cast of characters is very rich as well.

Which character – as performed by Stefan Rudnicki – was your favorite?

Joshua Jordan

If you could rename Thunder of Heaven, what would you call it?

Soon to come.

Any additional comments?

This is a great listen can't wait on the next installment.
