This is such a great book! It really gives you a better understanding of the Old Testament. It's set in the form of a story so it's very easy to read & understand. My Mom & I both had to put this on our keeper shelves!
this book takes the Bible and fictionalizes the accounts from Genesis to the Gospels. Very well written and enjoyable.
Making the Bible easier to understand in story form. I wonderful read.
I love the Bible. I read it through regularly. The "begats" and the Law bog me down, and I slog through some of the prophecies. But I love the Bible.
Mr. Wangerin does too. His work on this book is excellent. He reverently serves God through making much of the history come to life, including context and surrounding, while not getting bogged down as I do. I truly appreciate what he has done in this book. I may not put it back on my bookshelf!
I would recommend this book to anyone who believes in God. It is the old testament written as a novel which makes reading it so interesting. You will not be able to put it down. Got two of them, one for my husband and he is on his second time reading it. We tell everyone how amazed we are with this book. Great Reading.
