Simply the Best

This book has it all! It's Action! Drama! Comedy! Romance! And best of all, Historical Fiction. It is a story of a man who tested and tried religion and then accepted faith. But in the mean time he is faced with trials, danger, and love. All of it cast beautifully in the Roman empire. It is not another testiment of the Bible so much as the telling of one man's journey to acceptance of Christianity in the time immediately following the death of Jesus. Anyone, could relate to the main characters of this story. I highly recommend it.

Best Audio Book Yet

After listening to over 50 audio books, this is by far the best one yet, the narrator makes the voice of each character distinct and come to life. The book keeps moving at a very good pace and keeps you on the edge of your seat, while adding enough color to make you feel each scene. You won't want it to end. My mother read this book back in high school in the early 60's and said it was always one of her favorites. Can't believe I never read it before. The author must have done his homework well, to have colored the novel as accurately as he did. You will not be disapointed with this one. I saw the movie many years ago and it was good. But, they couldn't make a 20+ hour movie, so of course you miss most of the story.
