A Life Changing Encounter Nov 2, 2005
This heartfelt story places the reader alongside a disfigured little boy who is responsible to provide comfort for prisoners meeting their death by placing a sponge next to their mouths as they perish. The sponge has been soaked in vinegar and herbs. This sad, orphaned child had heard of the Messiah and hoped that this healer might see his face and heal him. The little boy never dreams that it would be Christ's face that he sees in a life-changing encounter.
REAL CLASSIC!! Sep 12, 2004
This is a real classic that I wasn't familiar with until recently. It is a fictional account of a young boy directly involved in the events surrounding Jesus' crucifixion, resurrection, and ascension. Since I was so impressed with the book, I've been sharing it with others. The book was originally published by Moody ("The Name You Can Trust") in 1970, republished in 1989, and published again in 2002. I agree with the comment on the back cover of the 2002 edition that this is definitely "a classic work of fiction that has inspired thousands of Christians for decades." After reading the book, I believe this would make an excellent Easter drama presentation.
Beautifully Written! Aug 3, 2004
Alberta Hawse has a vivid, delightful style, and her story of a young orphan who hopes Jesus will give him the life he wants is captivating...not just in the way it re-tells the events of the crucifiction day, but in revealing the change that happens to a heart that encounters the living God. Highly recommended.
Not Interesting Whatsoever Dec 23, 2003
I didnt appreciate this book as much as I thought I would. The spiritual and hopeful thoughts in this story was a little too much for me. I do not recommend this book to anyone.
