1000 Days

"1000 Days" by Jonathan Falwell is a book that follows Jesus in the last three years of his life, through his ministry. Falwell takes Biblical text and allows us a more in depth examination of some of the most important days of Jesus' ministry on Earth. Falwell adds his own commentary and opinions, some of which were great additions to the text, and some of which weren't quite so useful. One of the most interesting parts of the book for me was the discussion about the Biblical text of Jesus' temptation by Satan, during his 40 days of fasting. I thought that this book was well written, and Falwell makes some great points and observations about important Biblical events. There were a few topics that were thrown into the book that I didn't feel like they really went with the theme, such as the idea of temporary Heaven and Hell. Overall, a good read, though, and I would give it a 3/5.

FTC Disclosure: I received this book for free from Thomas Nelson Publishers through their BookSneeze program in exchange for an honest review. I was not obligated to write a positive review.
