Wow! Mr. Eden really knows how to weave a good tale. This book is set during biblical times, specifically when Jesus really started performing miracles and teaching the masses. It tells the story of Raf, the cripple, and his friends. I will say I saw some aspects of this book coming because of what it says in the Bible, but that does not make it any less enjoyable. In fact, I'd say that made it even better. One thing I really enjoyed about this book was the flow. It was written in modernized language, so it reads a lot easier than reading something actually written and translated from way back then. There was no attempt to try to make this sound like that, in fact. You have the impression of the current timeline because of the descriptions of the surroundings and how people behaved, but not because of the language. This also makes it way easier to relate to the characters and really care what happens to them. I found this book fascinating, because it really brings people to life that were mentioned in the Bible, but only in relation to Jesus. This book really drives home that the people He touched were real, and had real lives and struggles before and even after meeting Jesus. 5 emphatic stars!

I really enjoyed this book.  Mr. Eden is an incredible storyteller.  This book takes a fictional look into what the lives of those people around Jesus could have been and gives depth to their lives.  The authors portrayals really get to you and give greater connections and meaning to the miracles written in the Bible.   The characters are really alive and had tremendous depth.  Some of the story is predictable if you are familiar with the gospels but this didn't ruin anything,  rather it made it feel more real.  I look forward to seeing more from this author in the future.
