For me, the story didn't immediately grab my attention, but I'm glad that I kept going as the story ended up drawing me in. The more I read, the more that I wanted to find out how everything ended up fitting together. The ending was unexpected, but quite good. Webb did a great job helping me travel back in time to when Christ walked the earth. It made me think about what it might have been like for all those involved in the death of Christ. While the story was fictional, it felt like it could have really taken place.
Disclosure: I received a copy of this book to help facilitate the writing of a frank and honest review. A positive review is not guaranteed or expected.
The dusty streets of Jerusalem, the political/religious intrigue, and characters that pulled me into their daily lives made me reluctant to put this novel down. When I had to because of normal daily obligations, I couldn't wait to pick it up again.
I hope some producer spots this work and makes it into a movie.
For some who love to get lost in a great novel, there are just not enough great writers working in Christian Fiction. You find a new author to love, and soon you've read everything the guy has to offer. Then there is the withdrawal, the idea that there will be a new one for Christmas. My kids don't even ask me what I want for Christmas anymore. Christian fiction.
The really good news is that I have found an author you probably don't know anything about. And he has three other published works available right now. And I even happen to know that there's another one coming shortly. The Master's Quilt is the first in a trilogy called Giants in the Earth. I have just completed this book and will be reading the other two very soon. I'll report on the others here.
Michael Webb brings so much more than just nail biting action to the stage. He has an amazing knowledge of history and the inter-relationships of the major players during 1st Century AD. He weaves tales of deceit and manipulation that provide us one view of what might have been going on behind the scenes as Pilate, Saul of Tarsus, Herod Antipas, Caiaphas and others battled for power.
There is seemingly never ending stream of specific anthropological, cultural, and religious insights that help us to see more clearly what the struggle between Rome, the Jews, and the new Christians was really all about. Add the spiritual realm to the equation to complete a tapestry that keeps you guessing throughout the work.
Some reviewers on Amazon have argued that the book starts off a little slow.Read more ›
The author did a great job of storytelling, developing a story that is both intriguing and sticks to what few historical truths are known of this period. The story was both realistic and easy to follow. I found it hard to put this book down once I started reading it.
Michael J Webb did an excellent job of developing his main characters, building on the known history and adding fiction to tell a story. It was easy to identify with them and feel the internal struggle they were going through.
I really enjoyed The Master's Quilt by Michael J Webb and I highly recommend this book to all reader.
