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.

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.

Great book

Book is great, but it’s super annoying that it tells you every time you need to change CDs. This audiobook obviously isn’t on cd...

Betrayals and Betrothals... loved it!

Enjoyed this book even more than the first.
Christianity, paradoxes, betrayals and betrothals... one of my favorite page turners. It was not a good bedtime story as I’d find myself repeatedly extending the timer into the wee hours of the morning... but it was excellent for my long drives as I was captivated!

Good book but...

I love this book. I’d give it more stars if they got rid of the “end of cd #__ please continue listening on cd #__, cd #__” from the recording.

Come Into Me

I loved it. I loved the narrator,I loved the explanations of Jesus's sayings the descriptions of the places. Yes how I enjoyed that the biblical account of Jesus with the people in the story has given me more of the bibilical cultural, linqustic, understanding I so had longed for.
