Editorial Reviews

5/30/2013 - Lew Wallace
The tale revolves around two storylines: the story of Jesus and the story of Ben-Hur. The author supposedly was engaging in a discussion with an atheist over the existence of God when he discovered how little he knew about the actual historical setting of the Messianic events. He set to work, and after a season of research, turned up with the book, his primary purpose being to teach.

Reading Group Guide

One of the most popular American novels of all time, General Lew Wallace’s Ben-Hur vividly reimagines the mighty Roman Empire and the rise of Christianity. The saga of Judah Ben-Hur’s spiritual journey from slavery to vengeance to redemption is both a vivid historical adventure and a powerful story of one man’s religious awakening. As Blake Allmendinger writes in his Introduction to this Modern Library Paperback Classic, “Ben-Hur has endured for more than one hundred years because it offers something for everyone. The story of the Jewish hero Ben-Hur, his conflict with the Roman warrior Messala, and his conversion to Christianity at the foot of the Cross, combines adventure, sentimentality, athletic spectacle, and religious devotion.”

    A once in a lifetime read!!

    I decided to read only well-written and important works during this Millenial Year. I picked up the 'Focus on the Family' publication of Ben Hur as I was exiting our library. I did not know I had just picked up the novel of my life. This book is suplative in every way-wonderful plot, incredible characterizations, historically accurate, and even life changing. General Lew Wallace wrote this incredible work in 1880, and I don't believe this novel could be written by today's writers. There are some of the most perfectly written sentences I have ever read, every line comparable to fine wine that must be sipped slowly for best effect rather than gulped like present-day works. It took me a full month of pleasure to finish this fine work. It can be enjoyed by Christian and non-Christian alike, and will cause those who believe to believe even stronger, while those unfamiliar or doubtful of the Good News of Christ will be quickened spiritually. This book is gigantic in scope and life changing in effect. By the way, I've never seen the movie, but I'm going to check it tonight>>>

    It's good.

    Reading the book has filled in the movie. I really appreciated the author's use of language and sentence structure.

    Grat Great Story

    Although I loved the story, the description at some points seemed too heavy and I started skimming over certain parts. Also there are many errors in the text and it was very difficult to read. But overall a great story that I would recommend:)

    Good story but painfully slow

    I got this book as a free nook book. It's a "classic" so I figured, "why not?" This book is way beyond overly-descriptive. I found myself actually talking to my book, "I don't really care what the camels are wearing! Get on with it!" The main character of the story isn't even mentioned until page 62 of 435. It took me about 2-3 weeks of forcing myself to read this. If it had been written in 100 pages it probably would have been tolerable. Save yourself some time and watch the old movie version starring Charlton Heston.

    A Classic Always

    I had seen the movie several times, but reading the book puts nuances to the journey and events that the movie just couldn't portray. Wallace has made a classic with religious theme that will be ever a rewarding read.
