    1. When I d finished the Work and the Glory, I decided to go to the Kingdom and the Crown series next The premise sounded great in a similar vein to Lund s famous series, a fictional family is followed during a pivotal moment in history this time, during the time of Christ Researched like a history book but as readable as a novel, it promised to provide real learning in a fun way.And then, for some reason that I still can t put my finger on, I couldn t even get past the prologue It went back to th [...]

    2. I hesitated to start reading these books because I figured it would be the same old, same old I ve read about Christ s life in the Bible, learned about His life at church for over 40 years the story isn t going to change, right I guess I forgot who was writing the books Mr Lund can make the same old, same old become riveting and a book I don t want to put down until I m finished And when I say a book, I mean all three of them.With a desire to be accurate as well as fair to differring opinions, M [...]

    3. When my husband saw the series The Kingdom and the Crown on sale at Deseret Book, he suggested we buy them and read them together Forget the fact I have never read a book with someone since my parents read to me as a kid, I just wasn t that interested I decided to humor him because it did mean some one on one time with him Never before have I tried to read a book that is fiction based solely off of scripture I never got into Tennis Shoes Among the Nephites even I didn t like the movie version of [...]

    4. I loved loved loved this book After reading The Work and the Glory, and then this, Gerald N Lund has to be my favorite author.Anyways, when I first started reading this book, maybe the first chapter, I was a little intimidated because I thought that I wasn t really in touch with this time era, and the terms would be too difficult for me to understand what it really meant But the author gives super details and explains so much to make you really understand the time that all of this took place I f [...]

    5. I had mixed feelings reading this book.The positive I learned so much Tons of detailed information about ancient Judaean life social classes, roles, beliefs, Pharisees, Sadducees, zealots, gentiles, Rome, the layout of the temple, rituals, and on and on Some things I already knew, but maybe not in so much detail, and some knowledge was totally new All of these things went a long way in putting biblical events in context, being able to consider how Christ s teachings might be received by differen [...]

    6. With this series I was drawn into the story right from the beginning I particularly enjoyed the way the author worked the teachings and events from Jesus life into the narration in a natural way, so that it was as if we are there watching the actual events transpire Lund s work has helped me reach a level of clarity regarding the Savior s ministry This series did a wonderful job helping me understand which characters in the books are really from the New Testament, and where he was favoring certa [...]

    7. After reading Echo in the Darkness, I was left disturbed by the perversion and feeling empty I immediately picked up this series after a recommendation from a dear friend, and I just devoured it What an amazing series about the 3 year ministry of Jesus Christ I felt like I was one of his close disciples experiencing first hand the many miracles performed and parables taught by Him What a powerful and moving experience I learned so much

    10. I d been wanting to read this series for a while and finally started it when I felt I had some time to give I was reluctant because I remembered the Work and the Glory being somewhat cheesy, but I really wanted to learn about the Savior s life As far as the whole series goes, I wasn t disappointed But in the first book it takes a long time to introduce Him and I kept just waitingd waitingd waiting The introduction of the characters and back stories took a really long time, and I think I would h [...]

    11. This series is one of my all time favorite books The series is written by the same author of Work and the Glory but it is so so much better When my parents gave me these books I thought, oh great, some boring church books, but when I finally got around to picking the first volume up I couldn t put it down The plot in very entertaining with love, war, politics, and history all intricately involved but what I love about this book in addition to the entertainment value is the way it helped me to un [...]

    12. It s been 10 years since I read this series, and it s definitely worth revisiting periodically Lund masterfully weaves a fictional family into the time of the true Biblical story of Christ His expert knowledge of the Middle East and Christ s time shines through every page I feel I am there to see Christ s miracles as I read this bookLund has a gift with bringing the Bible to life In sum Any Christian would benefit from reading this book.

    15. This book was great I learned so much about the Savior The only problem was that the list of characters are so long that I kept getting lost I really like the notes at the end very informative I wish I had read these before I went to Israel last year.Lines that I loved No other single life has so profoundly changed the course of history and influenced humanity.Even our basic division of time into two great eras is marked by his birth.Numerous wars have been fought in his name.The common people i [...]

    16. To me this is the definitive narrative of its kind I have always been a fan of Gerald Lund, but he has outdone himself on this one.This story is about two very different families The first is from Galilee and has strong roots in the zealot movement while the second is part of the Great Sanhedrin of Jerusalem They come into contact with each other through a mutual enemy, a highway robber of Samaria In the midst of the political unrest, a man named Jesus of Nazareth begins to teach A family that w [...]

    17. My dad read this series before he died and since I got the 2 book on CD for free I read the first one I really liked it It really takes you there, with the issues facing the day, the fractions of Jews, the Roman empire, the places and how far it took to get there 2 fictional families a zealot, a Sadducee, a Pharisees and a few Roman soldiers The book made me get out my scriptures and write stuff in there, and look stuff up on line I could see how people could easily believe and how others would [...]

    19. I am a big fan of Gerald Lund s Kingdom and the Crown series I ve found it to be far less cheesy than The Work and The Glory series, with a lot of useful insight into the scriptures It might sound far fetched to say I could learn about the scriptures from a fiction book, but Gerald Lund s Kingdom and the Crown series is remarkably well researched Lund includes detailed notes at the end of each chapter, explaining sources for his historical and scriptural material It s a refreshing change after m [...]

    20. After I read The Robe, I became intrigued with the Jewish culture, and Jerusalem during Christ time What better way to learn a little bit and have a great fiction unfold And what a great story I love the way Lund writes I also have a different perspective on the stories about Jesus For instance the feeding of the 5000 with 2 fish and 5 small loaves of bread, and the woman who touches Jesus Robe, and the many encounters with the Sadducee and Pharisee I grew up with those, but to get an eyewitness [...]

    21. This is another LDS church book I had friends that so highly recommended it that I was surprised to find how hard of a time I had getting into it I started it several times and just quit If you know me and books, I just don t do that I will read ANYTHING And even if I hate it, I have the hardest time not finishing it I thought I had finally found the book I couldn t finishd wouldn t care if I didn t But I love stories of Christ could I not like this So, one last chance My problem was the charact [...]

    22. After the Book of Mormon, this is probably my favorite set of books People who say that the story of Jesus is the greatest story ever told, are right And these books definitely tell the story in a way that is easy to understand, follow and helps us to gain a testimony of our Savior Upon finishing these novels, I have felt driven to explore the New Testament again I am amazed at how closely Lund s series shadows the chronological harmony version of the King James Version of the New Testament Lund [...]

    23. This has to be one of the most fulfilling books I have read in a very long time Sure, I ve given many 5 star ratings in the past, but, this book is of a religous nature and, consequently, trancends action and other elements I usually yearn for when I read I really loved this book It was a first for me I have never read a religous fiction novel before Then to have this novel teach me so much about the times of Christ, Jewish rituals, customs, etc Let me just say that I cannot believe I couldn t f [...]

    24. After reading the Mark of Lion series, I have been very interested in the early Christian time period I remembered that I had this book sitting on my one of my bookcases for the last 10 years that I had never read I just finished it and I LOVED it I have enjoyed so much learning about the culture and customs of the time when Jesus was on the Earth It makes his words and teachings have a deeper meaning for me I have had lots of ah ha moments It is really fun to study my Bible lately with this ne [...]

    25. I love how this book follows many of the paths in the life of Jesus along with others who were impacted by the information received from the prophets of old about the coming of a Savior who would save I was especially impacted for instance about one of the shepards who was visited by the angels when the Christ child was born and how he wondered about the young boy child who was born The Zealot movement which was one of many movements where the thought was what Christ coming would mean and how th [...]

    26. I struggled to get through this book at first The language, names and Jewish customs were all very unfamiliar to me I had the first two volumes in this series, and then when I finally tracked down the third one, it had been long enough, I couln t remember the story line very well, so I went back and re read the first two volumes I enjoyed them much the second time I have now read them each 4 times, and the last time I read them, I read with the purpose of cross refrencing some of Lund s teachin [...]

    27. I really enjoyed this book It was a good mix of action, religion, and romance I really appreciated how the author explained the Jewish culture, it made the book understandable and it put the doctrine and reactions to the doctrine into context, which not only helped me better understand what was happening in the book, but it also helped me better understand the actual scriptures and what Christ meant by them I really like how the author focused on a family and how Christ s ministry affected them [...]

    29. My tastes in reading materials have definitely matured I used to love Lund s books, despite the fact that I found myself annoyed by his repeated use of contemporary cliche which doesn t fit its historical context, and overuse of the adverb fiercely to describe a speech tag said fiercely, whispered fiercely, etc I had the entire trilogy on my bookshelf, so I started reading As I read, I was reminded why it had been such a long while since I picked up Lund s books His writing was much worse than I [...]

    30. This is an awesome historical fiction book series about several characters families living at the time of Jesus Christ s ministry My dad read it to my brother and I a long time ago, but I really didn t remember any of it.I loved how Jesus was portrayed It wasn t so much focused on him as a main character rather, the book is about how he affected different people and what it cost or granted them to follow him He seems closer as I read this series and there are so many qualities that I want to lea [...]
