Read Risen: The Novelization of the Major Motion Picture Online Free - A Powerful Novelization from Bestselling Author Angela Hunt
Epic in scope, yet deeply personal, this novelization offers a unique perspective on the story of the resurrection. Roman Tribune Clavius is assigned by Pilate to keep the radical followers of the recently executed Yeshua from stealing the body and inciting revolution. When the body goes missing despite his precautions, Clavius must hunt it down.
His investigation leads him from the halls of Herod Antipas to the Garden of Gethsemane and brings him in touch with believer and doubter alike. But as the body still remains missing, Clavius commits to a quest for the truth--and answers that will not only shake his life but echo throughout all of history.

This book is amazing from start to finish.
You may have already seen the movie, Risen, which is being praised from all quarters. I haven't had the chance yet. But I did listen to the audiobook, and it is AMAZING. The story is told from two points of view, a Roman Tribune, Clavius, and a Jewish wid...

I am very familiar with the story of the resurrection of Christ but this book made the people in the story seem more real. The story follows Clavius, a Roman Soldier charged by Pontius Pilate with locating the missing body before the Emperor arrives in Jerusalem.
Fast paced and vividly described,...

When I first watched the movie, I LOVED it! So when I learned their was a novelization, I just had to get it. It took some time before I got to read it, but now I did.
It was the first time I read a movie novelization and I wasn't sure what to expect. The movie was so good, I didn't know if the bo...

This book was really good. It kind of picks up where Mel Gibsons' The Passion of the Christ left off, taking readers from the crucifixion through the ascension and Pentecost. A few liberties have been taken with the timeline and the parties involved in specific events, but overall I was impressed...

This is now my favourite historical fiction. I really, really enjoyed it, and will have to read/listen to it again. Even as a Christian of around 7 years, this book was such an encouragement and means of rejuvenation to my faith. It reminded me of my need to return, and never lose sight of, first...

The story was written in first person through the eyes of non-believers Clavius, a Roman Tribune and Rachel, widower and intimate friend of Clavius. The thing that jumped out to me about the book cover was the author Angela Hunt and the fact that this was a novelization of a movie that would be o...

[No Spoilers] Written in the first person point of view and spanning just over 300 pages, the novel follows two individuals: a Roman tribune named Clavius and a Jewish widow named Rachel. The book is historical fiction so it wraps fictitious people and/or events in with real people and events. In...

The Movie Was an Appetizer, THIS is the Meal!
What a surprising gem! I so loved the movie that, frankly, I didn't expect much here - I just didn't think that it was possible to surpass it. But I started this audiobook on a whim none-the-less and within minutes I realized that the novelization cont...

As stated, my bar of acceptability for Christian fiction is pretty low, but this one easily surpassed it. Most don't show the awfulness of sin against a holy God, so they don't leave much room for genuine gratitude. As in, "Great, God got me out of a 6 inch hole." Most don't show lost people taki...

I was pleasantly surprised by this book. It was offered for free from Christian audio for July. I did not have high expectations after seeing it was a novelization of a motion picture (and not the other way around). However, the narrative style quickly sucked me into the story. This book makes th...
