Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nancy Austin | 2/3/2014

    " Super quick read. Kind of an interesting idea: definitely thought provoking. For the time it takes, definitely worth it in my book. (No pun intended.) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Allen Lim | 1/28/2014

    " A very interesting take on Luke 7:23 "and blessed are those who are not offended by me." "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Joe Hightower | 12/30/2013

    " Very inspirational - facing the future without answers can be difficult and in this short book the author focuses on trusting what we know of God instead of focusing on what we do not know. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Susie | 12/27/2013

    " This book taught me about submitting to my circumstances - even when I don't like or understand it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rolando | 12/26/2013

    " Excellent book following the style of Gene Edwards. This question pierces through your heart: Can you follow a God that does not meet your expectations? Based on the life and death of John "The Baptizer", Gene helps us wrestle with the reality that God may not produce the outcomes we expect even when we're obedient and faithful. This book will give you plenty to chew on for a while. Highly recommend it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gloria | 12/15/2013

    " Fast Read. Interesting perspective of one possible theory on what John the Baptist and Jesus relationship may have been like. Was interesting. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Maxine Rybka | 12/5/2013

    " I agree with an earlier assessment that the theology is very flawed and the story takes liberties that spoiled the book for me. It had the potential to be so good and was a huge disappointment. Thank goodness it was a quick read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Pete Pharis | 11/26/2013

    " Good story with a fresh perspective. Too short. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Karen | 11/10/2013

    " This profound book was a huge transforming influence in my walk with God. When my husband picked it up and flipped through it, I was so protective. Hehe! I told him not to read it until he could give it the time and attention it deserves. =) I still feel that way a bout it. Read it and be changed "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lillie | 11/2/2013

    " Short, but very thought-provoking. Even John the Baptist sent to Jesus asking if He was the Messiah. God heals some people, but not everyone. He saves some from terrible tragedies, but not all. Do we believe and trust Him even when He doesn't do what we expect or think He should do? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jeremy Hatfield | 9/16/2013

    " This was a very powerful rendering of the life of John the Baptist, centering around the line "Blessed is he who takes no offense in Me." "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michelle | 8/15/2013

    " A short book, with a great message. Will we choose to follow a God who we are left questioning or leave him and blame our Earthly struggles on him. "Blessed is he who believes even though he had not seen". "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Laura Schrillo | 7/27/2013

    " Quick read. Thought provoking book on faith and how to stay faithful in adversity we cannot understand. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Thomas Kinsfather | 7/22/2013

    " An interesting look at the life of Jesus through the eyes of John the Baptist. John struggles with his doubts about Jesus' ministry and thoughts that his own ministry was a failure and God had abandoned him. Interesting book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jim | 6/20/2013

    " A wonderfully written narrative of John the Baptist that brings up the issue of expectations of God "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Deedee | 10/22/2012

    " Thought provoking. What were John's thoughts before he died? Hmmm... What would we think in that position? "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 S | 7/3/2012

    " Not really my genre, maybe. It doesn't seem to be a very honest approach to what John would have been feeling, although it does *try* to be... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kate Joyce | 3/29/2012

    " This is a short book but very powerful. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Gina | 3/1/2012

    " I really enjoyed this perspective on John the Baptist's life. It personalized it and helped me experience the pain and suffering and all that he sacrificed. Having seen the dungeons in Israel, I could picture where John was imprisoned. Very good book and most convicting. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amy | 2/19/2012

    " This was an extremely quick read, but definitely gave me a new perspective on a life of faith even when you don't understand God, and you have lots of "why God" questions to ask, with seemingly no answers. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 BC | 12/24/2011

    " Be ready to ask yourself some questions. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Christy | 10/2/2011

    " A little difficult to follow at the beginning but it all makes sense in the end. Suggested read for everyone! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alyson Daley | 9/5/2011

    " Loved this book...it's a short fictional read but very thought provoking for any Christian. I highly recommend it! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Charlie | 5/17/2011

    " Very easy and quick read. One of my favorites. Makes you think about your relationship with the Lord. Will you love a God whom you do not understand? "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Thomas | 7/23/2010

    " An interesting look at the life of Jesus through the eyes of John the Baptist. John struggles with his doubts about Jesus' ministry and thoughts that his own ministry was a failure and God had abandoned him. Interesting book. "

    " This book taught me about submitting to my circumstances - even when I don't like or understand it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Marcia | 1/27/2008

    " This book is a "fleshed out" story of the life of John. Like Mr. Edwards' other novels, much research into the lives of people during that time has gone into the story. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Netta | 5/27/2007

    " So simple... so profound.
    Hmm, makes ya think about your purpose. "
