Lund spins a fictional story that puts a family in position to listen and interact with to Jesus. I was surprised that Jesus is not heard from until after 100 pages. Lund gives lots of background into the politics with the Jews and how they are ruled by Rome. The first was confusing with all the background information and setting the story but as I stuck with it I enjoyed how the story unfolded. I also liked that the characters didn't immediately understand the teachings of Jesus. They would often discuss as a family what the parables meant which let me ponder those questions as well. First of three but you there was enough closure that you are not left hanging on till the next book to find out conclusions. Also Lund is careful not to add to much of Jesus that is not taken directly from the scriptures.
