Third Reading Lent 2017Could there be a better classic to read during LentSecond reading Lent 2016 Absolutely better on the second reading What American is unaware of the Charlton Heston chariot race It is absolutely iconic In Anne of Green Gables Anne is caught reading Ben Hur during lessons but couldn t put it down because of the intensity of the chariot race Most Americans have grown up with at least a passing exposure to the Hollywood epic of Ben Hur and therefore will find the text to be surreal and disorienting at first and then much richer than the beloved movie as the story evolves This very complex story has a whole cast of important characters and hundreds of pages to work out their stories It is a lot to read and keep straight but it is packed with one incredible story and some of the most beautiful biblical imagery I have ever read While the story is layered exciting and uick moving it is the beautiful scenery that Wallace paints that stays with me Wallace carefully orients the reader in the sights smells and people in the background of each scene This makes for very entertaining reading but in the scenes with Christ this leaves a reader feeling as though they were actually there We see Christ through 3rd person eyes but sometimes we also see him through Judah s eyes and this is very helpful during the Passion We relate to Judah s struggle against wanting to defend Christ with a sword against the Romans but being bound by His will Wallace does a brilliant job of drawing Judah right into those famous biblical scenes without compromising the Gospel one iota His ability to hold a fictional plot line in tandem with these eternally famous final days of Christ s life is inspired I was particularly gratified by how Wallace was able to include Judah into the most famous scenes of the Gospel without changing Christ s words one syllable The way that he fills in the context is very inspiring to this reader In fact I wish that biblical movies would study the final chapters of this brilliant book There are so many interesting themes that one could teach an entire year on this text and the rabbit trails it takes us on Egyptian mythology Eastern religions Jewish customs Jewish law Judaism across different cultures Roman expansion and occupation Roman military engineering specifically their dominance at sea Roman games specifically chariot racing Arabian horses Leprosy Jewish banking Slavery the life of Christ persecution of the early Christians etc etc etc This is a book that I will re read every few years and always during Lent This is a

I ve been meaning to read this book for at least 40 or 50 years and have just never gotten farther than starting it and then not finishing it The reason I hadn t finished it in the past was that I d pick something else up to read See this book was written or at least published in 1880the language and the writing reflect thatLook that is not a criticism it s simply a fact I had trouble acclimating myself to the period writingAlso I suspect most reading this will have seen the Charlton Heston film It will be almost impossible not to compare the two Let me say therefore that I like the movie and have seen it enough to have favorite parts That said there are significant differences in the book and movies there are a couple other movies of the same book The book has much content about Jesus I mean the book is subtitled A Tale of the Christ The novel takes much longer to get rolling again probably a product of the time it was written and it takes longer to set up the tragedyAlso the relationship between Judah and Messala is completely different here than in the filmAnyway good book be ready for some slow story telling but again a pretty good book Recommended
