Publisher's Summary

Adolf Hitler spilled the blood of millions for his own sake. Jesus Christ shed his own blood for the sake of millions. Hitler set himself up as a god and the masses succumbed. Jesus Christ was God in the form of lowly man. Hitler created a living hell for the masses. Jesus endured hell to save the masses. Hitler's name is synonymous with power, evil, and genocide. Jesus' name with love, peace, and life. Put the two in a room together and you won't believe your ears. The third compelling book in Ravi Zacharias' Great Conversations series addresses fundamental issues of life and death, the evil of violence in light of the value of human life, and other tough issues in modern society.

- As my Wimsey takes me

A brilliant Idea that was poorly executed.

Would you try another book from Ravi Zacharias and/or various?

Yes


How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

One. Men who only value power would never listen to a man who tries to appeal to his emotions and reason. 'Look what you've done Hitler, you've murdered thousands don't you feel horrible?!' He would have scoffed and said something like 'Then you'll be just another of the weak who have fallen dead at my glorious power.' And then put a bullet between his eyes. For men who value power, the only way to get through to them is to be more powerful than them. That's why we have the Justice system. That is why we bombed them mercilessly. Thats why Bonhoeffer was apart of the resistance to assassinate him. That's why Jesus comes in Revelation with wrath and a sword.

Another thing was the voice acting was really bad. The only voice i believed was the american in the prologue. The german accents were really fake sounding and you even chanced Hitler's voice actor after he commits suicide. And Jesus's voice sounded like some college kid that still had teenage angst. Nothing like the sound of rushing water both gentle and soothing yet powerful and authoritative.

And lastly some of the writing was just simply heavy handed. Like when the character's are saying what they're doing or where they are going. I know it's supposed to be a dialogue; and the reader can't see what the characters are doing unless the book tells them what's going on; but you could have done that with a narrator in the 3rd person like, 'Jesus then lead Hitler into a court room.' Or if you wanted to just use the dialogue you could have said it like this: 'Jesus: Step in to my court room Hitler.' Otherwise it just sounds really cheesy.


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

Yes


If this book were a movie would you go see it?

Yes, the heavy handedness would not need to be there since i could physically see what the characters are doing. And if better actors played the part.
