I really enjoyed listening to this audiobook of the film Risen.

28114264Although I’m very familiar with the resurrection story from the bible, this novel brought out lots of extra historical and cultural facts for me. I liked the way the story was told from the Roman and Jewish viewpoints, making it far more human than the accounts in the bible. The characters were well developed and their story lines kept my interest throughout.
The narrators Alana Kerr and P.J. Ochlan were very easy to listen to, although some of the male accents did niggle me a bit.

I would definitely recommend this audio to anyone who feels they’ve become over familiar with the Easter story, as it really helped to think about it with fresh insight.
