On 9/12 Jamie Cody wrote: Fictional book based on story of Lazarus, whom Jesus raised from the dead. Really brings the characters that we read about in the Bible to life! I really enjoyed this book. The authors really made the characters come to life in the story so much that it made me want to go back and re-read the story ... Very good read!

On 6/12 Freedom wrote: It is set in Jerusalem and the surrounding area during the time that Jesus walked on the earth. The story centers around and is told by the character of Lazarus. The story is scripturally accurate with some interesting character development by the Thoenes. Not much is recorded in the Bible about Lazarus ... Historical fiction at its finest
