Review

Ok, I am slightly obsessed with the Chosen! After all there is no better Bible show out there, so why shouldn’t I be obsessed?

This book is the written version of season 2 and it is fabulous! Following every episode and even going behind the episodes so you can get a glimpses of the characters in a new light! With plenty of suspense, action and adventure to keep you going this book is made for Christian readers!

Ok, I love the Chosen and I love the books! (So this was the perfect B-day gift for me!) However, there is some violence, nothing graphic, demons, mention of people on crosses and such. Nothing is described in detail but it is in there. (Pretty much just like the show)

Over all, I totally suggest getting and reading book 1 and 2!!!!! These are sooooo worth it and something any Chosen fan would LOVE! (If they like to read that is) And yes I passed my finals and I am now back and focused on books! Love ya! -The Young Llama Reader.

Pros

  • An AMAZING book!!!!!
  • Christian friendly and just like the show!!!!!!

Cons

  • Some mention of violence and things from the show.

As Jesus’ ministry grew, more and more people wanted to hear and be healed by this man claiming to be the Messiah. Some were eager; others were critical and reluctant. All, by encountering Jesus, were forever changed.

Follow along with Jesus’ disciples as they witness miraculous healings, confrontations with the religious establishment, growing concern among Roman officials over Jesus’ popularity, and, most of all, love personified.

Based on the acclaimed TV series, The Chosen, the most amazing story ever told—the life of Jesus—gets a fresh, new telling from New York Times bestselling author Jerry B. Jenkins.

The Chosen: Come and See captures all the action and drama in season two of The Chosen TV series. But it does much more than reflect the show. It also takes us into the backstory, thoughts, and motivations of key characters like Simon (who will later be called Peter), Matthew, Philip, Mary Magdalene, Simon the Zealot, and others. It helps us see them even more as very real, very human, and very much like us.
