Reviews - What do customers think about The Titus Diary?
The Titus Diary reviewed Oct 24, 2005
This is an excellent read and undoubtedly brings the book of Acts to life in a whole new light. Gene Edwards is a great storyteller and has a technique to his writing that portrays his Biblical characters down-to-earth and authentic to the reader.
Sometimes we like to put Biblical characters on a pedestal. This book offers a human side to the Apostle Paul, Silas, Luke and Timothy, which is very refreshing. One realizes that when it comes down to it we are all the same - spiritual beings incased in a temporary earthly body. The Titus Diary has a way of compelling the reader to look inward to the issues of the inner man. Taking the Christian to a deeper level of faith and leading to a journey of the spirit.
After reading The Titus Diary, the travels of the disciples in the New Testament will have a new reality when read. I highly recommend this book for anyone who is on a spiritual journey to know God more.
Paul's Third Missionary Journey Leaps to Life Mar 4, 2003
The Bible presents a general outline with details of some major events. Gene Edwards fills in the gaps of Paul's Second Missionary Journey in his book, The Titus Diary. Gene broadens the Biblical account by using realistic, natural explanations which are fictional but in no way do harm to the Biblical records.
His amplifications create a human element to the Biblical account. He paints vivid pictures of Paul's struggles and of the life of the early churh. You begin to feel what Paul felt as he faced the rejection of the Jewish leaders and the pagan culture of the Greek and Romans. At the same time, you will experience the joys of new believers in Christ as they meet in their homes--their new found faith, the joy of sharing and encouraging one anoher in a natural and spontaneous manner.
Gene develops not only the character of Paul but also of numerous others including Silas, Luke and Timothy. He also creates numerous other fictional characers, one of which is
Blastinius, a man determined to undo everything that Paul sets out to accomplish.
In short, Gene makes the book of Acts leap to life right before your eyes. I recommend that you read all of his books on the Book of Acts, The Revoltion, The Silas Diary, The Titus Diary, The Timothy Diary, The Priscilla Dairy and The Gaius Diary. By doing so you will have covered the entire Book of Acts and will have a completely new appreciation of not only this book but of the letters of Paul recorded in the New Testament.
Read on as Paul goes on... Dec 19, 2002
If you read the first one, the Silas diary, you don't even need to read a review to want to read the second one. But if you're still unsure, you have nothing to fear! Once again, the new testament comes to life through Paul's journey. The action, the passion, the love these first missionarie had for the world are fictionalized in these diaries and presented in such an awesome first hand view, you have to sit back in awe. I gave it a 4 instead of a 5 star only because the first book made me cry. This one didn't, although it was still moving.
After you read this book, the writings of Paul become richer Sep 1, 1999
Gene Edwards can make you see the works of Acts and the New Testament in a fresher light. You seem to understand what happened to make Paul address certain issues. It also ushered a much awaited healing for me. No matter what we walk through, or the lies spoken against the church today, Paul and the strength he walked in from Christ shines through for us today. It said to me, "Hey! If he can forgive those people, then I can forgive too!" It is really a must read for every believer!
