Editorial Reviews

'Whether the stories are familiar from childhood or encountered here for the first time, you will be struck by their palpable power. And the sweep of the narrative, like a vast fresco, allows us to see the big picture of God's providence in a way that we rarely do in our fragmented reading of Scripture...exhilarating, but also disturbing.'
'[Wangerin's] aim was to produce a clean, continuous story free of repetitions and genealogies, and to add in bits of cultural and historical background based on his own travels and scholarship. Sometimes he switches the narrational perspective so as to veiw biblical events through the eyes of minor characters. In all this he succeeds....'
'Powers along with great stamina for hundreds of pages....The pain of the crucifixion itself is memorably conveyed in terms of lungs, ribs, separating bones. Terse and punchy...it will be read and enjoyed.'
'Reads like 'Gone With the Wind' (of the Holy Spirit) or 'Pride and Prejudice' (plus prophets). Wangerin has done for the biblical kings what Shakespeare did for Macbeth and Richard III....Imaginative, stimulating and fresh....Bubbles with creativity but above all is the work of a craftsman.'
'An immensely readable and well-organized text and may be an acceptable and more enticing alternative for some people, especially those who -- like me -- always meant to get around to reading all of the original.'
'Considering what he has attempted, Walt does a remarkably good job, and he writes a lot of conventional'
'I was hooked...passages such as the account of Solomon's reign, seem to me to work exceptionally well....'

    I really enjoy the Book of God in print and I also love audiobooks. 3 stars for the content itself, it's fantastic.

    Taking off 1 star for the narration: hearing the author is great, but I'd really prefer a voice actor who can make the text enjoyable to listen to.

    Taking off another star for the audio files themselves. The individual files are mp3s that do no match up with the chapters. Not helpful. Unless you listen to this in one sitting (you won't) you'll need to rely on your audio player's resume function to keep you at the right spot.
