Publisher's Summary

Jesus of Nazareth's announcement that he is the Messiah has blazed through Jerusalem and the surrounding countryside like wildfire. As he travels through Galilee, the crowds follow him, witnessing miracles and healings. Jesus teaches the parable of the lost sheep and the return of the prodigal son. He walks on the water.

But discipleship to Jesus the Messiah has come at a high price for both Simeon and Miriam. Tensions mount when Miriam is faced with a deadly choice: confess her involvement in the events at Joknean Pass and further sacrifice her relationship with her father, or remain silent and sacrifice her friends and fellow disciples to the Romans.

Meanwhile, Ya'abin begins attacking Roman columns in the Judean wilderness, and Mordechai and Marcus unite to face a common threat. But Mordechai has bigger plans than simply ensnaring the Desert Fox; he plots to eliminate the threat Jesus poses to his religion and his family. And if his plans happen to also eliminate Simeon the Javelin, so much the better.

The Kingdom and the Crown, Volume 2: Come unto Me is a story filled with passion and betrayal, action and sacrifice, friendships forged and relationships lost. It is a novel about coming to terms with the demands placed on your heart and about coming unto him.

this is the end of disc 11

Wonderful book but was annoying to hear "this is the end of disc 3 to continue put in disc 4. Disc 4..." .and then there were random numbers being spoken throughout the story. It was a bit confusing.

Good story!

I was excited to find Gerald Lund's 2nd book in the series become available since I'd enjoyed the characters and the story of his first one, Fishers of Men. I love reading stories that help my understanding of what it may have been like to be living when Jesus lived, so it doesn't have to be a great story for me to enjoy it. It was an interesting story because of the variety of characters and perspectives so I did enjoy it.
I appreciate Lund's expressed attempt to be accurate to the text. However, in this quest, he chose to quote from the King James Version when Jesus speaks. That really bothered me because I'm pretty sure they did not speak 16th century English in those days, and it makes Jesus' conversations with ordinary people sound so stilted and formal instead of casual and natural, which is much more likely.
This is not my favorite narrator because he also speaks unnaturally... Very slow and deliberate, with long pauses, even in casual conversations. He has a nice reading voice to listen too, but I didn't like the way he did character voices, especially women and villains.

Come unto me

What a beautiful story with accurate scripture reference to the life of Christ. I love how the author had characters who followed Jesus but had questions as to what His parables meant. Through their discussions they brought to life the meanings and how to use them. I love the romance. This series has brought Jesus Christ to the forefront of my life. He seems so real as I know he is.

great story but not great audio

I really enjoyed this book. I kept wanting to listen or read but the audio had many issues. Voice changes when they were in the middle of a sentence and reminders to change the CD when it isn't a CD anymore. other than that, I totally recommend this book.

Best Story Ever

I absolutely love this story. It is the best narrative I have ever read of Christ’s life. It is interesting, informative, historical, spiritual, and the fictional story and characters are perfect with how they interact with the real people! I begin to listen to this series every year before Christmas and try to finish just before Easter. But I always finish sooner because I love it too much to wait. It helps you know and feel so much closer to the Savior! It always fills my cup!

Love the Story

I have 1,2,3. This 2nd book made me sad because it was a CD recording and I did not get the chapter notes which I need for a historical fiction.

Like Unto Us

loved it! I don't think I've ever had a problem understanding the New Testament. But to hear it applied in someone's life made it easier to apply it in my life. Listening to this book allowed me to personalize the Savior's teachings far more than I ever have.
