Publisher's Summary

Author E.G. Lewis has paid careful attention to detail, providing a carefully studied historical background and sketching a consistent view of the unknown with a masterly pen. Follow the saga of Rivkah who accompanied her father to Bethlehem where she held Mary's newborn son. Meet Shemu'el, the young man she loves. Follow them as they convert to the Way of Yeshua. You'll encounter a cast of fascinating, multi-dimensional characters and share the high points of early Christianity as they move from Jerusalem to Antioch and eventually to Rome.

The ever-popular Seeds of Christianity Series provides a heartfelt retelling of the lives of those early believers who formed the soil that yielded a rich crop still being harvested today. Set against a backdrop of biblically and historically accurate events, these epic tales entertain, educate, and inspire.

    "hard to listen to"

    I really enjoyed the story, but it was hard to listen to at times. I could tell the reader was reading. It made conversations hard to understand.

    "Seeds of Christianity"
    What disappointed you about Seeds of Christianity 4-Book Boxed Set?

    The first book, Witness, was a good story line that kept me listening even though I was not pleased with the narrator


    Would you ever listen to anything by E. G. Lewis again?

    Not with the same narrator - I have decided to not listen to the rest after making it only a few chapters into the second book.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Ruth Elsbree’s performances?

    Never


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Yes, I liked the first book for it's story line - I wanted to be able to listen to the other 3 but could not get into the second book. It was not good enough to endure the narrator.


    Any additional comments?

    I am disappointed

    "great book"

    The storyline takes a little bit to start. After things are set in motion there is lifelike feel to the story. Wonderfully done. instant classic.

    "Outstanding Set of Books!"

    It was very hard to shut down the program at bedtime. This is one of the best examples of Biblical Historical Fiction that I have read (or rather listened to) in a long time. I highly recommend this outstanding set of books!!!

    "First audio book series I ever completed"

    This series was given to me as a gift and once I started listening to it I could not stop. I have repeatedly found myself arrived at my destination and not wanting to get out of my vehicle & stop the audio. The narration by Ruth Elsbree was excellent and held my attention, even during my frequent 10 hour long drives. The many characters were well voice separated, making the story easy to follow or pick back up. The story made me laugh cry think and give me knowledge about the beginning of Christianity that I never would have otherwise taken the time to learn.

    "Excellent series!"

    The Seeds of Christianity books were absolutely wonderful historical fiction! What a realistic trip throughout Bethlehem, Jerusalem and beyond, we traveled with Rivkah and her family. It was fascinating to see how E. Lewis intertwined her life with that of Jesus, Mary, other Biblical characters and various apostles.

    Ruth Elsbree did a phenomenal job narrating these books! She brought all the characters to life in such realistic ways. Her voice became like a dear, soothing friend. Wonderful!

    "Great Story, Awful Story Teller"
    Where does Seeds of Christianity 4-Book Boxed Set rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Average.


    Any additional comments?

    I liked the story very much. It seems to be very well researched and included a lot of detail information about day to day life in the first century. Unfortunately, the narrator sounded like she was reading to grade school children, which was particularly disturbing considering the PG-13 content of certain sections.

    "A walk through history "

    This series was GREAT! It was captivating. The author's efforts were made evident in the historical details and the depth of the characters. I felt like I was watching their lives. I enjoyed the author's notes, they helped me to have a better understanding of the period. I can't wait for book 5 to see where the characters lives go from where we left off.
