I just finished the book and absolutely loved it! I found it very interesting and easy to read. Some people find it hard to relate to people in the Bible, because of the way the information is presented. This presentation makes the information so much easier to digest, and makes the people seem like acquaitances, and thus allows you to relate to them. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys reading the Bible, or enjoys Christian based writings.

Mark was not one of the twelve disciples but he was a friend of Peter and it was at his home that the Last Supper was served. He isn¿t sure that Jesus is the Messiah at first but senses there is something special about Jesus. He hears the prophecies Christ predicts before his death and sees them all come true. After the Crucifixion, he learns that many have seen Jesus and when he sees him as well he is convinced that he is looking at the Son of God. ---- He wants to preach and be part of the ministry but he is still too young and has much to learn. The twelve disciples were given powers to heal and they start preaching the ministry begins to grow. One of his most bitter enemies Saul of Taurus claims he heard Christ speak from heaven. A schism arose in the ministry when gentiles become Christ followers and did not have to adhere to law. Mark finally accompanied Peter to Rome where the believers were growing at an amazing rate. The more Nero tried to snuff it out, the more believers listened to the preaching of Mark and Peter. Mark writes the stories that Peter told him of Christ and it becomes one of the gospels. After Peter, his wife and Paul were executed, God sends Mark to Alexandra to start up a new church. ---- Tim LaHaye and Jerry Jenkins write so that readers can understand the preaching of Christ, how the church spread and the terrors believers had to endure because they were considered enemies of the state. These talented writers chronicle Mark¿s belief as he and others perform heroic deeds in a dangerous atmosphere that in many ways will remind the audience of what is happening to day in Myramer. Readers well feel love, heartache and hope as they read this special tale based on the Word. ---- Harriet Klausner

Looks like it will be a terrific book; however, the sample had only 3-4 pages of actual book; the first 100+ pages were cover pages, notes, etc. Very disappointing

I really appreciate the dialogue and interpretation of Biblical Gospels in this book. It's helping me take a fresh view of Scriptures that I've read many times over.

I had difficulty getting into this book, partly because so much of it quotes Scripture in King James English, but it was well worth persevering. The book fills in the context around the early church, especially the controversy over the Judaizers and the climate of persecution in Rome. In Scripture, Peter¿s failings help readers identify with him, but his humanity is even more marked in this book. Yet he continues to pick himself up and be used by the Lord, which encourages me to do the same. I also appreciated finding out the possible fates of early Christian workers like Paul, John Mark and Barnabas.
