Summary

Have you ever wondered what it would have been like to be one of the 5,000 when Jesus multiplied the fish and the loaves? Or one of his disciples when he walked on water? Or to have seen Lazarus come out of the tomb? Ever wonder what Mary thought when Gabriel told her she was pregnant by the Holy Spirit, or what the fallout was like in her personal life? Ever considered how those two disciples felt on the road to Emmaus, when they found that the man with whom they had been talking was in fact their risen Lord? 

This collection of retellings from the gospels is designed to bring each of these stories and more to life in your imagination. They stick to the facts wherever the facts are known, from either the scriptures themselves or from extra-biblical commentaries. But they also add in back story when necessary, reimagining the sights, the sounds, the colors, and the emotions for the person most involved. Each retelling ends with an afterword discussion, summarizing the reasons for the choices made in the story, followed by the scriptures themselves. 

Together, I hope these retellings help to paint a portrait of the Messiah.

Stretches Your Imagination

I enjoyed this book, and it makes you think, about these stories they are retelling. They do stick to the facts and add some backstories in. I would recommend this audiobook to anyone interested in reading the bible. James Cheatham as the reader was good. I was provided this audiobook for free in a promotion, and this is my voluntary review.
