Book Review – Talmid: The Book of John

Talmid: The Book of John by W.R.Sander

Beautifully written Biblical fiction.
Talmid, The Book of John is a tale set in the first century and follows the lives of three young friends who are thrown apart on different sides of a religious upheaval. Old Jewish law and actions are questioned by a powerful stranger, Jesus, who is teaching and portraying truth, love and life, but who is also met with extreme opposition from the strict, religious community.
The familiar Bible story is brought to life with vivid descriptions, believable characters and spellbinding narration. Jesus’ human life was such an amazing historical event filled with so many wonderful stories and miracles; Mr. Sander has intertwined the tales of his characters with recognizable Biblical events, opening up a new world as he explores the thoughts and emotions of this time through the eyes and minds of young Jewish boys.
It was a fantastic idea of Mr. Sander to present the story through the eyes of a boy, making it so much more relate-able to the youth of today.
I am looking forward to reading through this book again, at my leisure, to appreciate it fully and will be suggesting it to several friends.
You can feel the author’s passion and love for what he writes and I appreciate the care and attention brought to this book.
Highly recommended book for any age.
