A Powerful Novelization from Bestselling Author Angela Hunt

Epic in scope, yet deeply personal, this novelization offers a unique perspective on the story of the resurrection. Roman Tribune Clavius is assigned by Pilate to keep the radical followers of the recently executed Yeshua from stealing the body and inciting revolution. When the body goes missing despite his precautions, Clavius must hunt it down.

His investigation leads him from the halls of Herod Antipas to the Garden of Gethsemane and brings him in touch with believer and doubter alike. But as the body still remains missing, Clavius commits to a quest for the truth--and answers that will not only shake his life but echo throughout all of history.

Mediocre
Traditionally I listen to biographies not novels. But this was put in my lap, so I listened.

Interest level: High, as it should be being a novel.

Spiritual level: Not much of value until close to the end of the book, when leaving all to follow Jesus was fairly well portrayed.

Content: Not particularly supportive of the extra marital relationship. While it certainly was not explicit, it certainly did make you think about where it was going, which I view negatively. They take some liberties (as a novel must) but overall the historical portrayal seemed mostly biblically sound.

Narration was well done.

Not terrible, but wouldn't recommend.

Disappointed that this was recommended by ChristianAudio
My wife and I are great fans of ChristianAudio and have listened to many books over recent years. We trust the judgement of ChristianAudio, so we were really saddened when an explicit extra-marital sexual relationship came early on in this book. This was totally unnecessary and we immediately switched the story off and will throw away the CD. We haven't seen the film, but none of the reviews we read mention anything about this sexual content. Sorry, but is definitely a one star.

Did not finish
I didn't see this movie, but the plot sounded interesting, so I picked it up. I got almost halfway through before I stopped reading because of the illicit relationship that was a side story. Young Jewish widow sleeps with Roman soldier the first time he visits her home - and sleeps with him several times before she even knows his name?! That's not what I want to read. I did skip ahead to see if I could get a clue about how her redemption would be handled - if it was done well, it would have been worth continuing. However it seemed like it was going to be "love God, love your neighbor as yourself" without any "go and sin no more." There could have been plot points about that which I missed, though.

I also thought about listening only to the "Clavius" chapters (the majority of the "romance" was in the "Rachel" chapters), but I ultimately decided not to waste any more time on the book.
