Risen


RISEN

A novel by Angela Hunt, Based on the story by Paul Aiello
Screenplay by Kevin Reynolds and Paul Aiello

The novelization of the major motion picture.                                                                                                         

The book starts when the crucifixion of Yeshua (Jesus) is taking place and the book is able the search for the body of Yeshua to prove that Yeshua has not risen from the dead and alive as the believers are saying. Clavius, the Roman tribune, ordered by Pilate to find the body so the rumors would end.                                                                                                                                         

Clavius is determined to find the truth and interviews many that knew Yeshua and had part in the crucifixion. The author uses most of the details from the four gospels in the story making it very true to the Gospels.  Through many interviews and searching the facts, what Clavius discovers is more than he had hoped for.

Other characters of the story: Rachel, the Jewish woman, Lucius, Clavius’s helper assigned by Pilate, and many people from the Gospel story are included.

I found the story of great interest and an actual version of the Biblical account, just from a different view. This is great fiction based on Biblical facts. The book would be, in my opinion, a great resource for a family or small group discussion book. Another use could be to compare it with the Gospel account.

I received this book free from Bethany House Blogger Review Program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255
