Reviews - What do customers think about Prisoner In The Third Cell?
The Prisoner in the Third Cell Jan 11, 2007
This is a very thought provoking book, especailly if you focus on each of the characters in the beginning of the book and then follow their lives, where their choices lead and what causes ended up with them in prison. But when you get to the prisoner in the 3rd cell there is such revelation and the light really goes off-- I would recommend this book to every one to read, it is just awesome.
Waste of an hour Nov 26, 2006
I bought this book based on reading others' reviews of how great it was, how the author's storyteling "pulls you in from the start & never lets you go." Others gave the impression that it was helpful to those going through a difficult time. I have to say - I don't get it. It was very short (I read it in less than an hour) and kind of pointless. The basic point of the story is that God is a mystery, and we don't always know why he lets certain events happen. Yeah, I get it already. Have since I was little. I can't believe I spent $10 for this book.

The man who prepared the way... Sep 5, 2006
This was a great read. It allowed me to think about all that John went through. I am not a big time book reader and find it hard to get into many books, but I was hooked from the start. I was even in tears by the end of the book. I recomend this to anyone in need of direction and is a must read for Christian Leadership.
An intimate look Mar 15, 2006
This book serves as one of the most intimate looks into the thoughts of Christ That I have ever read...aside from the Word itself. You become John the Baptist. You walk through his desert, sleep in his cell and experience his thoughts. Edwards is a master story-teller. If you've ever wondered why God doesn't seem to move when you think He should...this book will speak to your heart.
