    The author did a great job telling this story within the greatest story ever told through the timeline of the gospels I found myself immediately pulled into the struggles the main character faced and it held me to the very end I laughed and cried and actually felt inspired by the journey the rich young ruler takes something I did not see coming You will love it and there are scripture references that the author uses to let you know when and where it is following the gospels Very clever Bravo

    A fantastic jaunt through the world of Jesus Hackett weaves scripture and fiction together to make for an interesting story The reader is treated to different perspectives of biblical scenes through the eyes of fictional characters that encounter Jesus face to face and are compelled to make powerful decisions of repentance.Hackett takes the reader on a historical exploration of the political intrigue and historical backdrop in Jesus day and puts a new, fresh spin on it.

    I picked this up during it s free promo but never got around to reading it until this week Wow, I wish I would have jumped on it earlier as it was a great read For a Christian book, it was fun, suspenseful, inspiring and thought provoking It held my attention from start to end Very nice surprise

    I have always wrestled with the strange verse in Mark 14 51, about a young man who was following Jesus in the Garden of Gethsemane, as Jesus was led away after his arrest The verse does not seem to belong or have a purpose behind it, but God always has a reason for everything.This novel is not about the ending of this young man s life after his initial encounter with Jesus, but about the beginning of it It is the untold story of the dangerous and impossible road he would have to travel if he wer [...]
