Publisher's Summary

A Powerful Novelization from Best-Selling 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.

    "Captivating story"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I recommend this to all people who love this genre. I just couldn't stop listening. Although the theme is quite familiar, it has all the elements to present it in a fresh way.


    What other book might you compare Risen to, and why?

    I can with honesty compare this to the AD Chronicle series of Brodie and Brock Thoene.


    Have you listened to any of P. J. Owen and Alana Kerr ’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    The presentation by PJ Owen and Alana Kerr is excellent, they totally draw you into this human drama.


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    The last couple of chapters made me again consider what love really is, and I thought it was beautifully written.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a must read. I wanted to give it five stars, but nothing on earth is perfect, and 4.8 was not a doable option.

    "Brought to life a familiar story"

    I very much enjoyed how the book was told from a 2 person simultaneous situation. I find it amazing that a new life was brought to the most beautiful but also best know stories of all time. Having to come up with a unique presentation and then a high quality telling of the greatest story ever told.

    "Extraordinary telling of a well known event"

    I will definitely see the movie even though it cannot possibly compare to this book. This was a very interesting telling of the events of the cross. The author explains the creative liberties at the end so the reader/listener should not be critical is perceived inaccuracies.

    "Better Than the Movie"

    I enjoyed the premise of the book and the idea that the body of Christ, after the Resurrection, would have been searched for by the Romans so as to prove He was just an ordinary man. The book has a lot more to it than the movie, with additional characters and insight into their personalities. I think in both, although more so in the movie, the sheer awe of seeing this Man, whom you helped to kill, is now alive and walking the earth again, is missing, but the writer gets close to it in the book.

    "An amazing story of an Awesome Truth"

    Read this and believe. The vivid power of the Risen Jesus is here but handled with human hands. The narrative is beautiful and it's easy to come to love all the characters for who they are. Rachel and Clavius are real somehow despite their fiction. But best the love story only augmented the Love Story of the Creator for His creation especially... man

    "Different and interesting perspective"

    enjoyed the unusual telling of the resurrection story from the perspective of a hebrew girl and roman tribune. Intend seeing the film version.
