Written by:
Richard L. Black
Narrated by:
Adam Verner

Unabridged Audiobook

Release Date

13 hours 49 minutes
A sweeping Christian fiction epic, Maximus is part mystery, part detective story, and filled with intrigue.

General Maximus is a battle-weary commander of one of Rome’s finest legions. When he returns from a long, bloody campaign, he finds himself questioning his life. Word has reached Rome of a man named Jesus, who is causing a stir in faraway Judea. Maximus, disguised as a Jew, is sent to investigate the situation and assess his potential threat to Rome.

In this innovative rendering of the story of Christ, we see Jesus from the perspective of an outsider. Stripped of his cultural identity, Maximus is therefore free to ponder whether he can believe Jesus and find a new purpose in his own life.

I love this book it’s my absolute favorite. I think the narrator did good but I don’t think he was a good fit for the voices for most characters. I also had trouble with the improper inflections given in most of the speech.

This is a book with a great Christ-centered favor. Roman soldiers fall in love with Jesus simply by observing him and his powerful ministry. Loved it!
