Genre: Women’s Fiction / Christian / General / Fiction

Breaking Free has become one of my favorite reads in all of Christian Fiction! Before I begin, it is important to mention that this is not a fun or light read. It’s emotionally gripping. If you’ve been or are going through this type of situation, you might have a tougher time reading this because it deals with some really tough issues. Due to this, it’s going to be tough to write this review.

Risen by Angela Hunt

27066723Risen by Angela Hunt

Release Date: January 2016

Publisher: Bethany House

ISBN: 9780764218453

Genre: Historical Fiction / Biblical Fiction

Angela Hunt is one of my favorite authors  so when I learned she wrote the novelization of the movie, I was ecstatic and had to read it! While the story is on the redundant side, it’s always fascinating to imagine the resurrection of Jesus Christ through a tribune’s eyes.

I have not seen the movie so I cannot compare the book towards it. However, I have heard that the movie is good but lacks in the scriptural content. Angela Hunt uses tons of scripture references (but not overwhelming!) and lots of historical context. She also includes a bibliography of her sources that can be found at the back of the book.

Ripped from her family, she’ll spend her days serving as a Lint, the lowest level of society. She knows it’s her duty to follow the true way of the Authority.
