You won't be disappointed!
5 stars By Mekkie, Jun 03 2018
This is an awesome book by a wonderful author and I'd reccommend it to anyone without hesitation! In fact I believe it is a "must have" for any Christian's personal library!!

This book has different sections in each each chapter, being:
The biblical narrative (from the Bible but filled in with extra dialogue, action and atmosphere), all accurate to first-century history;
The "Sacred Text" (Scriptures);
"Walking it out" which details how the biblical account (true story) applies to us, practically, in our lives today;
It also has "Talking points" (discussion guide) at the back - I'm hoping to use this wonderful resource to start a book club (small group) of sorts as I think it's the perfect place to start for such a study group!

I absolutely love how Viola brings the story to life and enables the reader to really put themselves in the shoes of the each character.

I also really admire how Viola manages to strike a captivating balance between Jesus' Divinity and His Humanity - I've never come across another author do this in the way Viola does. I can't wait to read "The Day I Met Jesus" now!

You won't be disappointed with this book!
