Original and fascinating story

I really enjoyed this novel and highly recommend it for its imaginative story. It is both well written and well read; has a good pace; and the vivid descriptions and interesting characters which bring scenes to life all contribute to it being an intriguing and absorbing story. Well worth listening to or reading for yourself!

The Right Read for This Moment!

The Secret Jesus is exactly the right antidote to the disruption, distress and chaos of this unprecedented moment in our history. The Secret Jesus speaks to universals in the midst of upheaval; read with a calm, soothing tone, the Secret Jesus melds science and theology to deliver an uncannily relevant message. The Secret Jesus sees transcendence in the most quotidian of details and invites readers to do the same. Stephenson's skillfully crafted narrative weaves religion, spirituality, and science into a seamless web. If everyone were to sit back, close their eyes, and simply listen to this mellifluous reader and spellbinding story, much good would come from the ensuing decrease in our collective anxiety. I strongly recommend this book to everyone, especially now.

Amazing, powerful story with a wopper ending

The story has a wild premise and kept surprising me. The writer has wonderful storytelling ability. The final chapters are hair-raising and it finishes with a powerful message. The narrator is superb. A good read!

Brilliant and compelling!

I cannot recommend this novel enough. Cinematic in scope, deeply personal in nature, and truly captivating. The story digs deep and challenges you, and Sue Stephenson's writing evokes a deep sense of place and wonder. The narration is equally brilliant and adds another dimension to the novel, and I highly recommend one as a companion to the other.

A great escape and a great story

Audiobook read like a good Netflix series. Loved the hero’s personality: strong, steady, earnest, and humble. His adventures, travels, and the characters he met were amusing and clever. Had insomnia at 2 am and couldn't resist listening. A wonderful narration voice. Loved it!
