As far as I have been able to find, this is the only novel of the life of Jeremiah. In its pages, you experience the turmoil and passion of Jeremiah. You feel the burden he carried trying to bring God‘s Word to an unbelieving people. You experience the anguish of his sufferings. Through it all, you see the hand of God at work. This is a must-read.

The Masterpiece | Francine Rivers
Mehso-so

I have loved Francine Rivers‘ books for years. She is without a doubt, one of the finest Christian Fiction authors out there. However, I was highly disappointed in this book. The plot was incredibly predictable. You kept hoping you weren‘t correct about what was coming next, but you were. It‘s a nice enough story, but does not reach the heights of “And the Shofar Blew.”

Looking at the life of King Herod through the eyes of his sister is the profound perspective of this book. While the book never apologizes for Herod‘s violence, the author weaves in the historical narrative that provides a deeper understanding. Yet, the story never loses its way or become preachy. This book left you wanting more even though it is the last one in the series.

This is one of the most thought-provoking, soul piercing books I have ever read on teaching children the gospel. It has effected everything I do with my children and the children I teach in Sunday School. I've read the book twice and it still challenges me to do better.

This is a must-read book for understanding the background of the Galatian churches. The perspective it offers on Galatians chapter 4 is astounding. When you try to wrap your brain around the cult of Cybele and its influence on the region while examining the Galatians acceptance of the gospel and the Judaizers will forever change the way you see this book of the Bible. I cannot recommend it highly enough.

When I choose to read this book, I was afraid it was going to be 4 sappy love stories. It was not that at all. Instead, it showed the complexities and nuances of 4 of Solomon‘s wives and the impact each had on him. I especially loved the tie-ins to the book of Ecclesiastes. This book, at its heart, is not a love story, but a journey about wisdom. I highly recommend it.

Just finished reading this book for the second time (4 years between readings). This book does not fail to disappoint. Sheba‘s story will take you through the depths of a soul scarred by psychological abuse and how the love of God redeems that pain. Besides an amazing story, this story offers fascinating historical insights into Israel and Judah during the time period of Jezebel‘s life. This book is a work of art.

Rereading this incredible book this weekend.

I have lived so much of what is written in this book. I wish all my family and friends had read this as I dealt with the death of my husband. If anyone around you has experienced a significant loss, this is a must read book.

To quote Paul Harvey, “This is the rest of the story” of the Waorani people. This book dives deep into the history of the Waorani from the martyrdom of the 5 to what happened next. It looks at the influence of Christianity on the tribe and the encroachment of the modern world. It‘s a non-fiction book that reads like a story. It‘s hard to put it down.

Best read after the first year of widowhood and young widows should read some suggestions with the viewpoint of they are meant for the older widow. The mending while intending section is very helpful.

This is an incredible retelling of the story of Daniel. The intricate history that is woven into the story teaches much while carrying you along in the plot. Giving Daniel a wife is a stroke of genius. This is not a story to be missed.

Loved this book. I enjoyed the differing perspective of each of the wives. The story moved quickly and kept you wanting more.

I gave this book to my husband for Father's Day one year and ended up stealing it from him. I re-read it every other year. This book makes Philippians come alive. You experience the people and culture of the Philippi church. You share in the joys, sorrows, and struggles of these early believers. No other book compares to this. It is also a commentary of the book, which allows you to dive deeper. It's an unforgettable read.

Mostly liked this book. Enjoyed the perspective of the characters. At times the story seemed too improbable with the women being the only strong characters and the men weak in comparison.

A great treatise on the problems in teaching writing today, but stops short of practical solutions.

One of my favorite books of all time. A treasure.
