Publisher's Summary

Behind the men who shaped history are the heroes who forever changed it.

In The Scribe, the fifth and final book in the Sons of Encouragement series, beloved author Francine Rivers illuminates the life of Silas. Like the other Sons of Encouragement, this book tells the story of a lesser-known biblical character who made an impact on eternity. The Scribe tells the story of Silas, the man behind the spotlight who recorded most of the New Testament Scriptures we know today. In classic Francine Rivers style, the story lets listeners grasp the scriptures in a whole new light from a perspective never before imagined. Along the way, listeners will be captivated by the growth of the early church and the trials Paul suffers before he is martyred for the cause of Christ.

Last in series. 😪

I have read the series on different men in the Bible from Aaron to this last, Silas. Francine Rivers does a wonderful job of making these persons from the Bible much more real to me. They have fears, anger, hesitation, doubts....in short any one of us. Love the series of the men as much as the series of five different women

Great story

It confirms that God used people with the same desires, needs and weaknesses that we have. She is an awesome story teller.

Very good.

This was very very good, & I really enjoyed it! I do wish, though, that there would be a pause or something to indicate a change of times, etc.

good but...

I love anything from Francine Rivers. this one is no different. however, I take offense at the every mention of a slave, nearly, they're black slaves. There were slaves of all types mentioned in the beginning but Ethiopian or black saves are always mentioned specifically. Black people weren't the only victims of Roman oppression. please stop pin pointing black people as slaves.

Not Rivers’ best / melodramatic narration

Francine Rivers is one of my favorite authors. This was not her best. Much of the story was a recap of the Bible almost directly. She usually does more to bring the characters to life. Hardly any character development here.
The narration was not good IMO. He made Silas sound whiny. He tried too hard with the characters making them almost into caricatures. He put so much personal inflection that it seemed at times to change what Rivers was actually trying to say.

Great Book!

A blessing. Thank you.
God has given you a wonderful gift to share the gospel in this special way to His glory. Keep up the good work. The Narrator was excellent.

Not what I expected.
