De Wohl's masterpiece 5 septembre 1999
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
This is the best novel that deals with Christ's life, death, and Resurrection that I've ever read. It's solidly, unabashedly orthodox and pulls together the Gospel accounts in a brilliant weave of history and imagination. Unlike other novels of the genre, it doesn't try to "explain away" the supernatural... it simply presents it and invites the reader to believe. But it also does not attempt to enter into either the mind of the God-Man Jesus Christ or his immaculately conceived mother Mary. Although HIDDEN VICTORY by Fr. Herbert Smith, S. J., does an admirable job of trying to understand what God and the Blessed Virgin Mary may have thought and felt, I also appreciated De Wohl's implicit understanding that such a task is impossible. While the meditation might be fruitful, it is also something to approach cautiously.
This is why I think De Wohl's technique of presenting the story from St. Longinus' point of view, rather than Christ's or Mary's, works so well. Here is someone like ourselves, sinful as we are sinful, who tries to grasp the cosmic events swirling around him. When, by God's grace, he is brought to belief, we cheer and see our own struggles reflected in his while praying for the same triumph that he experienced.
All this sounds very lofty. I hope I haven't scared off people who are simply looking for an entertaining novel. Those people will find such a novel in THE SPEAR, but they will also find so much more!

Powerful, realistic portrayal of a man's journey to faith... 9 juin 1999
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
I was moved by this beautifully written story of Longinus, the Roman soldier believed to have been present at Christ's crucifixion. Not only is this an interesting look at Rome and Israel 2,000 years ago, but it is most importantly a powerful story of Longinus' conversion from a bitter, revenge-driven man to a repentent, joy-filled soul. Inspiring, and a very good read!

An eye-witness account of the crucifixion 14 novembre 1998
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Cassius Longinus is a man searching for ...something. He is not sure what. He does not believe in the Roman gods, but he knows he should believe in something. He lives for revenge and he lives for the love of two women and somehow it isn't enough. The elusive Yesua (Jesus)seems to bewitch everyone who comes in contact with Him. Cassius avoids Him until after the crucifixion. This novel is exciting and has some romance and also makes you think. I highly recommend it.

Classic for a REASON - I loved this book! 18 septembre 2013
Par Sarah Reinhard - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Thank you, oh friend who picked this for our fiction book club. It's a hefty book, to be sure, and it's a classic for a reason.

I've never read any Louis de Wohl, but I'll be reading more after this introduction to him.

This book examines Jesus's life and passion and death through the lens of real people. It's truly almost a spiritual read...and, though I claim NOT to like historical fiction, I think this is definitely historical fiction and it's WONDERFUL.

I caught myself, while reading it and since reading it, listening to the Gospel readings at Mass differently, actually hearing a voice and picturing people. This gave grit and dirt to things that I think I take so much for granted: the wonder of our faith and of the real-life events that happened during Jesus's life.

Even though I knew the story, I didn't. At all. Truly, a masterful work that should be required reading for...well, for all of us. GOOOOOOOD stuff.

A Seamless Garment of Fiction and Scripture 27 mars 2010
Par Gerard Webster, award-winning author - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Louis de Wohl has the amazing capacity to take one obscure figure from scripture, the centurion who pierced Christ's side with a spear, and breathe life into him by creating a novel around what his life might have been like.

Cassius Longinus is introduced as a young soldier in Rome, the son of a retired general. He is infatuated with the lovely Claudia, a distant relative of the emperor Tiberius. But when enemies entrap his father in a swindle, Cassius sells himself into slavery to pay off his father's debts and keep him out of prison. Claudia shuns the slave Longinus and weds the newly-named procurator for Palestine: Pontius Pilate. Cassius is further betrayed when his father is murdered and he himself is destined for destruction in the gladiatorial games. He acquits himself well in the arena, however, wins his freedom, and sets about to plot his revenge.

Cassius Longinus is presented as a noble but pagan Roman. His thirst for justice requires distance from his enemies and time to build his power and resources. To gain both, he returns to the soldier's life and accepts a post in Jerusalem. From there the story blends in beautifully with the last days of Christ. Cassius's journey takes him from a dark existence of cynical disillusionment to a life of faith and love again.

I am grateful that Ignatious Press resurrected this timeless masterpiece. In it, Louis de Wohl weaves a seamless garment of both fiction and scripture. MUST reading!
