The Spear

Excellent!! Bravo!!!
Incredible book. Gives a full depiction of the happenings and activities (positives & negatives) around the crucifixion. Wow. Absolutely incredible book.
I recommend it to all who say the know Jesus. In fact, this should be recommended reading.
And Richard Ferone? My good, WOW!!! In my opinion, he is THE absolute BEST NARRATOR E-V-E-R! Great voice. Just LOVE his voice. The best in the business.
I had this book for a good while. Didn’t know what to think of it. But, then I felt I needed to listen to see what it was about; so glad I did. Superb. 💞

Really excellent Novel

I don't review books but this one was really exemplary. It does a great job of bringing these characters to life and tying in allowing the characters of the crucifixion. If you're a Catholic or a Christian, you'll really enjoy this one. Wish I could read it again for the first time.
