I always love to hear about other people's interesting experiences and this is one out of the box. I found the story moved at a good pace where I kept listening before realizing it had been sometime before I thought to take a break. Hence it did not take me long to reach the end. What a great testimony of love, survival and revelation. I am glad I chose this as it not only takes you into someone else's world but also from the point of a professional. Definitely recommend this one.

I really enjoyed this book. It covered each element a person may wonder about and question when it comes to Jesus and if He lived. I did not find it one sided as others in the reviews as I believe he brought his own challenging questions to the mix and interviewed those that had done the research and work in understanding and knowing the past. If the research found that Jesus lived then that is what has to be presented.

I found the content thorough and interesting and really enjoyed the smattering of recent cases he had covered as a journalist.

A little agonizing

I enjoyed the first third of this book. Apart from the swearing, which for me wasn't needed, I thought the story was real value. Unfortunately after listening to one torturous event after another I was eventually worn down and did not want to listen to someone putting themselves consistently through physical torment, deliberately. Perhaps I was missing the point but I thought that I had got the point in the first part of the book, that is - push through and don't give up, don't think your best is your best because you always have more in the tank. I also lost the flow of the challenges he tried to set his readers, which might have been easier to follow in the hard copy version rather than audio.

There is no doubt the man is remarkable and did some remarkable things but the story for me was a bit like a trip to the dentist, not a fun experience, you are glad when its over but somewhat worth the the visit.
