John's Story: The Last Eyewitness by Tim LaHaye and Jerry B. Jenkins

This review was harder to write then reviews I wrote in the past for books I didn't care for.

The Apostle John is the main character and everything is seen through his eyes. He has to face trials and tribulations. He is even sent to the Island of Patmos where he receives his vision for the book of Revelations. He has Ignatius and Polycarp to help him with his church though Ignatius won’t be around for a long time. John retells the story of his time with Jesus to battle the agnostic Cerinthus. But John is really sick and unsure whether he will finish before he dies.

Tim LaHaye and Jerry B. Jenkins are good writers but this is one of the first that I have read where I really enjoyed the writing. I really felt like I was there experiencing everything in the book.
I really enjoyed reading more about the basis of my Christian faith and I enjoyed a lot of the ways that they had John speak. It is hard to really say in words how much it impacted me. But I think it helped me to see clearly some of what the Early Christians had to deal with. There isn’t a whole lot I can say about it because it is something you really need to read for yourself. It impacted me a lot and I am not sure if I want there to be more in this series cause I am not sure where they could go with it. I give this a 5/5.

I think it helped with having just finished A Voice in The Wind before this that made it easier to follow. My next book is The Oxford Murders by Guillermo Martinez. I was given this book to review so I hope I like it. :)
