Once I started reading this I couldn’t put it down. Even though it isn’t true, it gives nuggets of the culture and times that Jesus would have been surrounded by.

I started this book waiting for the author to make some egregious mistake  of sacrilege but it never came. I believe that there is a fine line that we shouldn't cross when it comes to our description and portrayals of God and the Heavenly realm. This author did not cross those lines. He used the God given gifts of creativity and imagination to tell a story that is true to the Biblical account. He did not take any artistic license and change up the Biblical story to fit his story. His writing style does NOT rob you by be over descriptive. He lets your imagination freely paint the picture of scenery. This book shares the same elements that made the move Ben-Hur such a great movie. While Jesus may seem like a background character, His pretense and teachings are ever present throughout the entire book. This makes Jesus the fore front of this book and its ultimate main character. I have never been so involved in a protagonist such as the character Maviah. The author portrayed all of His characters in a way that was very relatable.
