    Ben Hur eBook ☆ Hardcover Ben Hur ePUB Out of that vast tomb Christianity issued to supersede the Caesars Ben Hur is one of those classic works better recognised for its many adaptations To this end it seems fair to compare it to another highly similar work Les Miserables Both are classic historical fiction works which use history to spread themes and ideas about humanity as a whole Both novels also regularly divert from the storytelling to provide detailed insights into history This is perhaps where Ben Hur is stronger than Les Miserables in that as a novel it works histor

    Ben Hur eBook ☆ Hardcover Ben Hur ePUBThird Reading Lent 2017Could there be a better classic to read during Lent?Second reading Lent 2016 Absolutely better on the second reading What American is unaware of the Charlton Heston chariot race? It is absolutely iconic In Anne of Green Gables Anne is caught reading Ben Hur during lessons but couldn't put it down because of the intensity of the chariot race Most Americans have grown up with at least a passing exposure to the Hollywood epic of Ben Hur and therefore will find the text to be surreal and disorienting at first and then much richer than the beloved movie as the story evolves This very complex story has a whole cast of important characters and hundreds of pages to work out their stories It is a lot to read and keep straight but it is packed with one incredible story and some of the most beautiful biblical imagery I have ever read While the story is layered exciting and quick moving it is the beautiful scenery

    Ben Hur eBook ☆ Hardcover Ben Hur ePUBThe first sign that I should not have read this book was the discrepancy in hours between the abridged and unabridged versions on audible Unabridged 21 hours Abridged 3 hours I bought it anyway and soon discovered why There's about 15% story and 85% fluff in Ben Hur It is hands down the best argument for editing I have ever read For example there was a section in the beginning where two men embraced That's all we need to know right? No no Of course not We have to hear that they threw their right arm around each other keeping the left to the si

    Ben Hur eBook ☆ Hardcover Ben Hur ePUBLike probably most if not all of you I have seen the movie made from this book and than once To no one's surprise I last saw that movie a very long time ago Consequently I cannot say just how faithful the screen adaptation was to this book but I think the book as we would all expect is better and the ending much fulfilling Now why read a book first published in 1880? To be honest as a kid I liked the movie though after reading this book I think Charleton Heston was horribly miscast as a Jewish man in his late 20s to early 30s Later in my fascination with history I learned that the author of Ben Hur was Lew Wallace a Union general in our Civil War I thought it very odd for a general of Wallace's repute would be writing a novel and a novel such as this one So I was curious about this book and got even curious wh
