Publisher's Summary

Master storyteller Walter Wangerin, Jr. makes the Bible come alive in vivid detail with The Book of God, his passionate, exciting dramatization of the events and people of the Scriptures. Recreating the high drama, low comedy, gentle humor, and awe-inspiring holiness of the Biblical narrative, Wangerin reveals the humanity and eternal messages behind the text. Imaginative yet meticulously researched, The Book of God is a sweeping history that covers thousands of years and hundreds of lives, in a myriad of foreign yet familiar cultures. The award-winning Wangerin, one of our most respected and beloved contemporary writers, has produced his magnum opus, a timeless masterpiece that rekindles the imagination and nurtures the spirit.

The Book of God: The Bible as Novel (Unabridged)

I enjoyed every chapter in this book. It made the stories and the people much more alive and real. I have a different impression of Simon Peter,Mary Magdaline,the time of Abraham and even Judas. I find myself remembering parts that I never would think of before and pick up the Bible to re-read different chapters and verses with a new understanding. Just reading the Bible never brought me back for clarification, but this book brought me back to the Bible.

Don't let the voice throw you. Awesome book!

This man has made me cry tears of joy and wonder. The voice of the guy that reads it grates on you at first, but he is able to be many voices through the course of the book, and becomes very intimate and convincing. Hang in for a while and at the end of this very long book, all you can do is eagerly look forward to the other one on the life of Paul. Its not just me saying this. Several friends to whom I have recommended the audiobook say the same thing. If you have never read a chronological Bible, this is going to be a special treat for you. Enjoy!
