I am a Hindu and I know about Christianity only through my Christian friends and movies. It's so popular that many movies are taken even in my regional language. So, I entered this book with as much nervousness when one has on their interview day. As far as I am concerned, this book is just plain fiction to me, but the research work and hard work of the author can be noticed.
The story follows Jacob, whose life traverses along various historic life events. Jacob is not the usual hero type material. He is the hero, who is common man. So, seeing history through his eyes is definitely a story, that is commendable. Jacob faces so much tragedy in his journey, but still comes up with confidence and heart in each instance.
Facts and fiction play side by side in the novel and the readers will be kept interested enough to get absorbed into the life of Jacob. The real story, as said by John Neeleman, questions some major beliefs of the society. Well, I am not good with Christianity or history, so I am not the right person for judging this part.
A new perspective on history!
