    I absolutely loved this book and I'm usually not fond of fictional accounts of parts of the Bible. However, the author brings to life each story and then talks about each in such a way that the reader learns a great deal about the Bible. I'd recommend this book for new Christians as...

    Gifted author Charles Martin brings bible stories to life like no one else. He masterfully weaves his re-telling of bible events, together with lessons to learn and he shows how to apply these biblical principles to your life. I was deeply moved by how real and vulnerable the autho...

    This book was part story format and part commentary. The author started the chapters with a scene from Scripture in which he filled out the details with speculation. He was pretty clear about what was directly from the Bible, what was his speculation, and what he based that speculation...

    Beautiful Like any Martin books, this is a well written story that draws you in. Unlike the others, this draws you into the story of Jesus. Christ in me, the Hope of Glory. ...

    When I saw Charles Martin had applied his novelistic mastery to a tender moment in the Christmas story?on Earth and in Heaven?I was spellbound. That piece was first published on his website and eventually found its way into this book. I obtained an early copy from NetGalley and hav...

    ?So let me come back around?what is your personal experience with Jesus? To you, who is He? No, I mean really. Spend some time here. Ask yourself, when things are bad, who holds the power?? --Charles Martin Charles Martin takes a great many biblical stories and readings and...

    If I described What If It's True? by Charles Martin in one word, it would be... piercing. He doesn't sugar-coat things. He fully believes in the Bible as inerrant and divinely inspired. He calls out false prosperity movements. He tackles heavy topics such as rejection, resignation, sex...

    I wanted to love every moment of this book. I read Long Way Gone in one of my book clubs. I had never heard of the book or the author. Our leader didn't realize she had selected a Christian Fiction book. It is a library book club so we normally stay away from that genre. I loved how he...

    I have not yet finished What If It's True?: A Storyteller?s Journey with Jesus because it's overdue at the library and there are people waiting in line for it. I intend to reorder it and finish it. What If It's True?: A Storyteller?s Journey with Jesus is a very intense book ...

    Wow, pretty amazing perspectives and thoughts shared to really challenge and prepare my mind for Holy Week. I liked the fictional perspectives of those that had miracles occur and reminder of how much Jesus wanted to connect with them and love them. I loved that this book had so much s...

    This is a "Must Read" book. Charles Martin has wrote a book that will speak to your heart about Jesus. He tells you in the front of the book, to read this book with your bible and notebook beside you Compare what he is saying to what the bible says. This is a book that I will buy in ha...

    This is a deep book for deep thinking and will require multiple readings to really get the most out of it. Mr. Martin uses Scripture and Biblical stories throughout to encourage a deeper relationship with the Lord and does a great job bringing to life the historical context of what too...

    This book was a God send for me. If you are searching reviews trying to decide whether or not to try this book, let me just STRONGLY suggest yes with a capital Y. I love Charles Martin as an author of fiction novels but this book made me appreciate his writing even more. I enjoyed hi...

    Hard to lump this one into a category: Part personal testimony, part Bible study, part devotional, part Christian living. The really great thing about it is the absolute passion of the author about the truth of Jesus Christ, and what that means to each and every one of us if we take it...

    The first part of this book made the Bible come to life for me. The author?s style allowed the reader to experiences in biblical times through more normal narration than the Bible verses and Psalms Christians are familiar with. It is written with so much passion and humility, it felt...

    Thanks to NetGalley for the ARC ecopy for my Kindle. And because it was an ARC, the first part of the book repeated lines and sentences which I'm sure will be corrected in the editing process. I have read all and purchased most of Charles Martin's books. He is an interesting writer wi...

    Stunning I have read all of his books. Each year I look forward to the next one(s), often enjoying his writing on vacation, and passing his books around to friends, my dad, and my wife. Then this book was published and smacked me square in the jaw. There?s no mystery in why he wro...

    So very many thoughts about this book, and ones that I cannot adequately encapsulate in this text box. So many thoughts! It is one to take your time with, to re-read, to keep on your nightstand and to read as you journal or as you read Scripture. For now, let me just say, I feel this i...

    A couple of things you need to know about this book from the start: it is not a quick read. Martin himself asks his readers to linger, read slowly, write in the margins. I could only handle about one chapter a week. To benefit the most, you'll need to wrestle things out, mull over what...

    He is a true disciple Charles Martin?s book glorifies the living Christ. This book is indeed an invitation, a confirmation, a declaration, an affirmation of HIM who loves us beyond all human comprehension. It is a beautiful gift. Thank you, Charles Martin and thank you Christy Mar...

    I love Charles Martin's novels! Unfortunately, this nonfiction fell a little flat for me and it took me a long time to get through it. I will say that he made some very profound points and I am glad that I read it, I just felt that it moved very slowly. One of the good things about t...

    This book has forever changed how I view the gospel. I have long been a Christian, but Martin made the gospel real in a way I have never considered. He reaches deep into the surroundings of the crucifixion, the potential thoughts of those witnessing the events. Martin isn't trying to...

    Charles Martin is my favorite author and that goes beyond his writings. While I have enjoyed all of his many novels to date, this one is very different in both taking the story of Jesus and putting it into very meaningful modern day context with soulful personal insights by the author....

    Take time to read this book. Charles is so gifted at bringing understanding through his words, and he does it with humility and a genuine desire for others to experience Jesus the way he has. Several times I had to put the book down until the tears stopped. If meeting Jesus on the day ...
