A classic of faith, fortitude, and inspiration, this faithful New Testament tale combines the events of the life of Jesus with grand historical spectacle in the exciting story of Judah of the House of Hur, a man who finds extraordinary redemption for himself and his family.

Judah Ben-Hur lives as a rich Jewish prince and merchant in Jerusalem at the beginning of the first century. His old friend Messala arrives as commanding officer of the Roman legions. They become bitter enemies. Because of an unfortunate accident, Ben-Hur is sent to slave in the mines while his family is sent to leprosy caves. As Messala is dying after being crushed in a chariot race, he reveals where Ben-Hur’s family is. On the road to find them, Ben-Hur meets Christ as he is on the road to Golgotha to be crucified. That day changes Ben-Hur’s life forever, for that is the day he becomes a believer.

    " This was my favorite book as a kid. I read it 10 times - no joke. It's been a few years since the last time I read it, but I think it's one that withstands the test of time. "

    " Finally done. The first half of the book had good moments but was too slow overall. But the second half was great - fast-moving and interesting. I'm glad to be done and free to read other things. "
