This book is literally everything you could ask for in a christian allegory. Ted Dekker is literally amazing in that he makes you feel so interpersonal with these characters that you feel what would have been if you lived durring the time of Jesus. This book is nothing less than the Flame. Dekker literally comes through with the flame thrower and sets fire to every area of your being. This book is lit and why don't you own it. Buy this book.

I would highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a good allegory. Ted Dekker has written a masterpiece with The Circle series! It kept me enthralled and turning the pages so that I could see what happened next. The alternate ending in Green completely wraps the series up. It is one I will read over and over again...there is so much in it to be discovered.
