Publisher's Summary

Transported two thousand years into the past, readers are introduced to Antipas, a Roman civic leader who has encountered the writings of the biblical author Luke. Luke's writings spark Antipas's interest, and a correspondence transpires between them. As the two delve deeply into each other's lives, Antipas begins to see things in fresh ways, causing him to rethink the values upon which his life had been founded. In due course, a gladiatorial contest in Pergamum forces difficult decisions on both the Christians in that city and on Antipas himself.

Troy and the reading of The Lost Letters

Troy narrated well. The story was rather excellent. Not as good as some books but alright.

Long Lost Letters

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

Anyone with an imagination will love this book. It is historical fiction well written by Longenecker. Although it is quite scholarly, you won't notice as you are drawn into the correspondence between Antipas and Luke in the days of Pax Romana.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Luke was my favorite character because he diplomatically answered Antipas' questions while at the same time giving historically accurate information that filled in the background of life in the Roman Empire for a minority follower of The Way.

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

Troy Duran does an excellent job of pausing at just the right time, speeding ahead with emotion when necessary, and overall living the story. While I could do that for myself in my head, it's not the same as being able to knit and let someone else do the reading for me!

Who was the most memorable character of The Lost Letters of Pergamum and why?

Antipas was the most memorable for me because of his inquiry into truth.

Any additional comments?

This narrative is quite immersive. Do give it a listen! You may have to allow yourself a few chapters to get into it, but it will be worth your time.

Slightly Intriguing with a Great Ending

Any additional comments?

I love everything that Longenecker and Witherington 3rd put out, but this was informative, and a little slow. It was developed using a creative approach, but nobody understood it except myself. Great for a glimpse into the enigmatic culture of the Roman/Greek mindset. Would it help with explaining our Gospel to an equally ignorant modern audience? Maybe.

Wow

Talk about taking a time machine back to the times of the early church! I actually felt like i was right there. The language used is so descriptive and flows so well that the imagination just follows. It gave me a clear and accurate idea of what life may have been like for early christians in and around roam after Jesus was killed and the gospels were being written. A good read historically, spiritually and academically as a lot of the accounts echo what the text books say.
