Series: A.D. Chronicles
Author: Bodie Thoene, Brock Thoene
Herod, the king of Judea, plunges deeper into madness as people wonder, Where is the promised liberator? As signs appear in the heavens, Mary of Nazareth receives an unusual visitor. What he tells her will change everything about her life . . . and impact all those in Judea and beyond for eternity!
"Sean Barrett's masterful performance gives an authentic flavor to the biblical story of Herod, King of Judea; Zachariah and his wife, Elisheba; Onias the tutor; the angel Gabriel; and Mary and Joseph. Barrett’s depiction of Herod's insanity is captivating. His depiction of Gabriel’s angelic voice, complete with appropriate sound effects, is stunning when Gabriel delivers his prophesy to Zachariah: He and Elisheba, long past child-bearing age, will give birth to a son. Barrett deftly captures Zachariah's disbelief. When Gabriel tells Mary she has been chosen to carry the Messiah, Barrett's beguiling performance equips listeners to experience her joy, wonder, fear, and even her lingering questions. Outstanding sound effects and a commanding performance of this historical fiction make this an unforgettable production."
