Tor, A Street Boy of Jerusalem

Read by Patrick Saville

(4.6 stars; 51 reviews)

Tor is a young beggar living in the city of Jerusalem during the tumultuous time of the Roman occupation. Shouts of hope are the last thing this street boy expects when he witnesses Jesus riding into Jerusalem on a donkey. Tor comes face to face with the man Jesus and from that moment his life is forever changed. With thievery, injustice, and brutality as the backdrop of this novel, Tor learns to trade his hatred for love, and what it means to be a follower of Christ. This novel is for ages eight and up.

Interesting Listen

(4 stars)

This book presents the last week of Christ's life through the eyes of a street boy whose life is transformed by him. Like in this author's other books, she goes to great lengths to create a realistic picture based on the gospels and other historical sources. In matters of creative interpretation one may differ--Peter is presented as not merely impetuous but even cruel, which felt like listening to a good friend be libeled! I tried to look past this as the content otherwise is quite good. The reader has a nice tone and pacing, and his reading would be improved by reviewing unfamiliar words ahead of time to give them the right pronounciation and inflection.

Good story

(4 stars)

This story kept my attention. It helped fill in areas that the Bible writers leave out. It told the story from a peasants point of view. Showing that no matter who you are, Christ can touch your life and change your outlook.
