The Novelization of the Major Motion Picture

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.

Description

A Powerful Novelization from Bestselling Author Angela Hunt

Epic in scope, yet deeply personal, this novelization offers a unique perspective on the story of the resurrection. Roman Tribune Clavius is assigned by Pilate to keep the radical followers of the recently executed Yeshua from stealing the body and inciting revolution. When the body goes missing despite his precautions, Clavius must hunt it down.

His investigation leads him from the halls of Herod Antipas to the Garden of Gethsemane and brings him in touch with believer and doubter alike. But as the body still remains missing, Clavius commits to a quest for the truth--and answers that will not only shake his life but echo throughout all of history.

Customer Reviews

An incredible biblical fiction story!

The characters of Clavius and Rachel are fictional and extremely well developed. I really enjoyed both of them and seeing their different viewpoints following the crucifixion of Christ. Their backgrounds are clearly described and how they are affected by events is easy to understand.

I was captivated by the story and completely caught up in reading how Clavius’ search for truth would play out. I am fascinated by the ability of writers to take biblical accounts and add depth and descriptions to them. Knowing the story from the bible itself didn’t take anything out from my interest in reading this book. I credit that to the ability of both the writer of the screenplay and Angela Hunt to weave a magical story.

This is the first time that I have read a novelization of a motion picture before ever seeing the movie. I look forward to seeing the movie to see what additions were made in this book to make it novel length.

I received a free copy of this book through The Book Club Network in exchange for my honest opinion.
