Believe for He is true

Scripture is hard tho discern if you are not a scholar.
The Chosen is sort of like historical fiction. True and holy scripture, yet spaces, blanks and keys to link everything together so that a believer of God like me is finally getting things straight 🙏🏻

Loved it!

I loved the book and the performance was also great. I watched the show first, but the book definitely added some layers of detail to the story that I enjoyed.

Amazing!!!

I wish I could give this book ten stars. If you have seen The Chosen television series, then you already know. If you have not seen it, then please listen to this audiobook. It is the greatest story ever told, but you will love how this retelling makes the disciples and other biblical figures come to life. It shows them as real people, just like you and me. I highly recommend it for any person, of any age group.

Wonderful narration of The Chosen! Fantastic book!

Superb narrative of the first season of The Chosen, with background music from the TV series. Best narrator I have listened to on Audible.

A great book

Although it was very much like The Chosen tv series it was a great book to listen to (and read since I purchased the Kindle edition too). It included background and interesting facts about the characters, storyline and traditions.
