I Was Called Barabbas – Book Review #AD

I was recently sent a copy of I Was Called Barabbas and Pillars Of Barabbas in exchange for an honest review. #AD

We all know the story of Jesus Christ, it was educated to us in school and to some of us at church.

The story of Christ’s demise is one that sticks in our minds, some may remember the story well.

To kick start your memory of that fateful day, we heard how Jesus of Nazareth was imprisoned by the Romans with another man named Jesus. Jesus Barabbas is variously described in the historical record as a thief, murderer, rebel, and notable Roman prisoner

On the day of the Passover feast in Jerusalem, both men were put to trial, Roman Prefect Pontius Pilate was to free one man. Pilate wanted to free Jesus of Nazareth, however, the people decided their fate and they let Barabbas go free.

Having been freed Barabbas is overcome with guilt, why was he spared? Why was he free to live his life?

Many have wondered what became of him, or rather, who he became after that fateful day. Someday we will know the answer, but in the meantime we can imagine that, like all of us, he too sought a path of personal redemption, imperfectly.

I Was Called Barabbas is M. D. House’s fictional account of the life Barabbas could have gone on to live. 

This book has been a pleasure to read. I couldn’t put it down and I was very impressed with the research and detail that has gone in to this book.
M. D. House has perfectly told the story and along the way has weaved in other significant characters we know from the Bible. There are many twists, turns and some sad chapters, I really don’t want to give to much away in this post.

The story has shown me that anyone can be forgiven and I’m sure its message will help many readers.

I am already looking forward to reading the second instalment, Pillars Of Barabbas.
