Customer Reviews For "Eli"Write Your Own Review
It took me a little while to settle into this book as it is written as 2 concurrent stories, jumping between the 2. After a short while I found it easier to switch between the 2 along with the author. Having said that, I'm glad I persisted as I would say this is probably my favourite novel. The synopsis states the book "strips away religious tradition to present Jesus fresh and unvarnished" I wholeheartedly agree and was deeply moved by this book. The publisher claims this is a story with a "truth that will refresh your faith". I would go a step further suggesting this modern day parable, written to appeal to a broad audience, may also appeal to those non-Christians yet to find the truth of Jesus, and could potentially ignite their faith. It certainly should get people thinking!
