An Exciting Adventure Jul 11, 2007
Phil Ginsberg takes us into the lives of important Biblical Characters. We are able to see from their eyes what it may have felt like to be a follower of Jesus and to lay your life and family on the line. The Bible comes alive through Phil's eyes. I've known Mr. Ginsberg for 32 years. He is a man of God who has the ability to put onto paper what many of us have surely thought about. Paul, Mark, John, Luke, The Lame Man at Beautiful gate...all of born witness to our Savior and Redeemer, Jesus, our Jewish Messiah.
Excellent, easy reading. Excellent for a Home School Drama group for Readers Theatre!
An "Experience", Not Just A Read Jun 2, 2007
"Voices Beyond the Veil" is an important work that needs to be read by nearly anyone with an interest in God or the Bible, and I do not say that lightly. This is an undiscovered treasure that needs to be known! The caliber of (the author's) talent that comes through these pages is awesome in itself, but the possibility of what can be learned here, by the lowliest seeker to the most learned theologian, is extraordinary and unprecedented. What you find when you open this book is people--real people, except they happen to have jumped from the pages of Scripture to say hello and tell us a little bit about themselves and their experience of God. Does that sound like a bit too much? Well, it isn't--not in the hands of Phil Ginsburg. In fact, as I think about it, this book also speaks to anyone interested in drama, acting, the stage, or skits, because the tone of the work is unerringly top-notch, just begging to be performed. The humor, the pathos, the pain--it's all expressed in language you can "see" as well as understand and will return to more than once. Don't think you can read it lightly, or in one sitting though, despite the pleasure you will have whenever you pick it up. Each little "spotlight" (speaker)packs a powerful and deeply considered human being's heart--coming clean, coming out and speaking up--appearing before you from the pages of the past as if by magic, only instead of magic, it's just plain brilliance. Got a drama team? Get everyone a copy and start using this book for performances--you will astound and delight your audiences. Got a book you've never seen the likes of before? Try this one. Got God? Take a look at Him through the eyes of those who speak from these pages, who are sometimes bemused, aghast, or even confused by how they've known Him--but they are alive!--(in a manner of speaking) and they want to tell you all about it. What to do? Get a copy, and let them tell you. This is a valuable book, a very dramatic, moving book, and you should not miss it.
Living Bible Stories Apr 15, 2007
This book is a terrific resource for storytellers and Bible students alike. It could also be used to provide part of a worship service. Ginsburg bring alive the characters, and provides us with stories we can read, study, enjoy--or perform! I intend to use it on all four. An audio version of this book would be very powerful.
Insight from the heart of scripture and the human condition. Mar 30, 2007
There are hundreds of books, fiction and non-fiction about the Bible. Most of them are predictable and frankly a boring and dry read. Voices Beyond the Veil, however, is anything but that. Ginsburg is able to perform heart surgery on each Biblical character that he writes about and he delivers the gist of that characters story--bringing it forward into the light of the human condition. I gleam more from reading two pages about one of the individuals he writes about then reading a 100 page commentary. The main difference here is that Ginsburgs' creativity keeps you coming back for more. Once you read it you will want to purchase it for others like I did. I hope he writes 80 more insightful readings!
