Christian Fiction That Doesn't Back Down

Although I've been a Christian for most of my life, I'm almost always disappointed by Christian fiction due to it's lack of honesty. Rarely does a book shine the light of Jesus so clearly, while not denying the truth of what living in the world is really like. This story is full of wonderful characters dealing with the real issues of life in ancient Rome. We are shown the open debauchery, decadence, and brutal violence of the time very vividly by Francine Rivers, who gives us a "meaty" story that will satisfy both Christians and non-Christians alike.

The narration is weak, and if you're picky about that in an audio book, I suggest you listen to the sample for a long time before you decide to buy this book. The cast of characters is very large, and the narrator does not use much variety with his voices or accents, especially with the females. All his women have a weak, whiny quality to their voices. It took me a couple of chapters to stop being distracted by him, but eventually, the strength of the story itself was enough for me to really begin to enjoy the book.

excellent story

This has to be my favorite Francine Rivers book so far. It has lots of different elements in it which can appeal to different people. It has romance, suspense, action, and much more. The narator is quite good too. I've read other books that he has narated, and I didn't like them too much. I loved this one. The book starts out a little slowly at first, but that is because all of the characters have to be introduced and that takes a while. I recommend this one whole-heartedly. It's awesome!
