[Francine Rivers] Ç Mark of the Lion Trilogy [wonder-woman PDF] Read Online È This has got to be the best, and I mean, THE best Christian trilogy I ve ever read You know those good ol movies such as Ben Hur and The Robe This trilogy reminded me of the movies In fact, how I wish they would make a movie out of the books The only problem I have with the series two of the books anyway is Hadassah, the heroine of the tale She was too perfect, too good, and she spoke Christianese What I m saying is this nobody is that perfect a Christian in real life Although Hadassah is a meek and fearful person, she was never angry, never hated anyone and never imperfect in her behaviour when it comes to being a Christian Therefore, I found it difficult to relate to her.
Marcus, on the other hand, is a well rounded, flawed character Someone who has doubts, someone who gets angry, hates, gets disgusted and yet is capable of love and compassion That s a real human being there.
Still, the series is simply amazing I couldn t put it down, and created a love in me for all things Roman If you know anyChristian novels set during Roman Times, do tell me I m always on the prowl for one Meanwhile, let me slake that thirst with Rosemary Sutcliff s works I cannot say how much I love these books I read them every couple of years The characters come alive and I think about them often Sometimes I will find myself asking what would Hadassah do in this situation A MUST read Loved, loved, loved, them These are can t put down, aren t going to feed the kids or the dog, not doing laundry kind of books books 1 2 need to be read as if they are one book If not, all the darkness esp Julia in book 1 may turn you off bc it nearly did for me Plus, it s tough to get into at first, but don t give up Book 2 is the redemption part SO good I loved it Couldn t get enough of book 2 and I didn t want it to ever end.
I have mixed feelings about Book 3 I rated it 3.
5 stars 5 but I was disappointed about the last quarter of the book, esp Atretes treatment of Rizpah It s still a good book but it frustrated me and made me not like the trilogy as a whole as much So, I definitely recommend the first two books with book 3 being optional These books will make you think, learn some historical facts, and maybe make you cryat least they did for me Good stuff This has got to be the best, and I mean, THE best Christian trilogy I ve ever read You know those good ol movies such as Ben Hur and The Robe This trilogy reminded me of the movies In fact, how I wish they would make a movie out of the books The only problem I have with the series two of the books anyway is Hadassah, the heroine of the tale She was too perfect, too good, and she spoke Christianese What I m saying is this nobody is that perfect a Christian in real life Although Hadassah is a meek and fearful person, she was never angry, never hated anyone and never imperfect in her behaviour when it comes to being a Christian Therefore, I found it difficult to relate to her.

A good read, heavy in drama and emotion, impossible to put down, and uplifting and encouraging.
Unless you didn t cry at the end of Toy Story 3, in which case I don t have anything for you.
These three books are amazing The first book takes a little while to get pulled into, but once you do, you won t put either of the books down Amazing series with several stories being told within Top 10 of my favorite books This Best Selling Trilogy Chronicles A Tale Of Persecution And Perseverance Of St Century Christians In Hedonistic Rome A Voice In The WindTorn By Her Love For A Handsome Aristocrat, A Young Slave Girl Clings To Her Faith In The Living God For Deliverance From The Forces Of Decadent Rome An Echo In The DarknessTurning Away From The Opulence Of Rome, Marcus Is Led By A Whispering Voice From The Past Into A Journey That Could Set Him Free From The Darkness Of His Soul As Sure As The DawnAtretes German Warrior Revered Gladiator He Won His Freedom Through His Fierceness But His Life Is About To Change Forever The Mark of the Lion series was wonderfully written The author, Francine Rivers, has done her homework, and writes about the tyranny of Rome about 200 AD in a way that transports you back to that era Indeed, to crack the cover of these books and begin reading is very like discovering a time machine and traveling back in time As Jerusalum falls, you are there, feeling the terror of the Jewish people and early Christains as Rome persecutes and and nearly exterminates a whole group of people You feel the pain of the early Christains as they face the lions in the arenas of Rome You feel the forgiveness and mercy of one fine young Christain Jew as she loves her enemies and grows to become what Christ would have us all to be.
The third book in the series was almost anti climatic for me, and wasn t up to the quality of the first two, but even then, the third book is an excellent read I strongly recommend these books.
I was never a reader of Christian fiction, but this collection was recommended by a good friend she was reading it aloud to her family, and said they had a hard time putting it down They couldn t wait to return to it the next evening.
I found myself in the same situation This is so well done every single book holds the interest and the reader is hard pressed to take a break I became very invested in the main characters and was dying to know what happened next.
Highly recommended I have the trilogy and will re read.
One of my favorite series ever
