Joseph of Arimathea is a rich member of the Sanhedrin, yet something is missing from his life. At the advice of his closest friend, he seeks the teacher Jesus to see if he holds the answers he seeks. Little does he know the events that are about to unfold.

A 6,000-word short story about the first Easter.

I'll be listening to this audiobook again!

I LOVED this book. It grabbed me from the very beginning and left me wanting more. The author did take the liberty of identifying Joseph of Aramathea as being two other unnamed people in the New Testament, but it was very well done!
And as far as the audio version of this book – amazing. I normally prefer to read physical copies of books, and kindle if I can’t afford a paper book, and audiobooks if I’m driving or doing chores. But the narration of this audiobook was so good I think listening to it was even better than reading it would have been!
I highly recommend this audiobook and I think I may need to make listening to it an Easter tradition!

Bringing the story alive again

Title: Joseph of Arimathea
Written By: Sarah Holman
Narrated By: Stephen Floyd
Genre: Christian Biblical Fiction
Recommended Ages: Any

I haven't read much fiction about the resurrection, so I was interested to listen to this book. I am glad I did.

Characters: 1/1
The characters were each unique in their own way. I especially liked Joseph, Cleopas, and Nicodemus. Stephen Floyd brought them to life very realistically as well. I loved the accents he used for some of the characters.

Dialogue: 1/1
I loved how much Scripture was brought alive in this book in the dialogue. It was well done and the parts that were not from the Bible fit in with the time period.

Plot/Storyline: 1/1
Sarah brought in three of my favorite stories in the New Testament and wove them together in a way I had never thought of before and did it very well!

Overall Writing and Production Quality: 1/1
The story was well-written and the use of the Bible done well without it being all straight from the Bible. The production of the audiobook was well done, too. The narrator did a good job portraying each character as well as the narration.

Un-put-down-ability: 1/1
This is a short story and audible says it is 36 minutes long, so it would have been hard to put down simply for that fact, but even though I knew roughly what the end of this story would be since I know my Bible, I still didn't want to stop listening. It helps that the narrator had a good voice that is easy to listen to.

Conclusion: 5/5
If you are finding the Resurrection story to be stale, try listening to or reading this short story. It will help bring the story alive again.
