Day 3: A favorite book

Once again, another tough question! There are so many good books out there... Actually, this one was fairly simple.  My all time favorite book has to be "Christ Commission" By Og Mandino.

(From the back of the book) "In front of eight million TV viewers, "The Greatest Mystery Writer in the World" bragged he could prove Christ was actually stolen from the tomb and never really rose from the dead...if he were given just one week back in ancient Jerusalem.  That night, author Matt Lawrence got his wish.  A knock-out punch took him right out of this world and landed him in the Biblical Judea in 36 A.D., just six years after the execution of Jesus at Golgotha.  In relentless pursuit of his investigation, Lawrence walked the same streets Jesus walked, visited the same places... and found himself facing the same dangers. Eyewitness reports might lead him to a discovery that would shake the world- but will he live long enough to tell the 20th century that he just solved the greatest mystery of all time?"

Definitely a must read!!

In Christ's Service,

This one was excellent, although he did take liberties with some of the charactors. We don't really know who the person in white was at the tomb where Jesus had been laid. But yes, very good!
