Risen the Movie Coming to a Theater Near You Soon but Risen the Book is in Stores NOW

There are a lot of fabulous movies set to debut in 2016. Risen is one that I am looking forward to seeing. Risen is the story of Clavius, a Roman centurion, who is sent to find the risen Jesus of Nazareth. The movie will be released mid-February and the trailer is AMAZING!

I was already looking forward to the release of this movie and after reading the novel adaptation based on the movie, I am even more excited about the release of the movie.


Risen:  The Novel is the story of the Resurrection is told from the perspective of a non-believer.  Once Clavius realizes the body of the Messiah is gone, he ventures on a journey throughout the land which causes him to question his own beliefs.  Clavius knows the body was in the tomb.  He saw it there.  He knows the tomb was sealed.  He saw it.  However, he cannot explain the stories he is hearing of angels, stones being rolled away, he must have something to report to Pilate.  Along the way, he meets Rachel, who has seen Yeshua alive.  Unlike Clavius, Rachel believes for she has seen with her eyes.  Clavius and Rachel begin an affair and although the story doesn't center around their romance, the development of their relationship makes for a great backdrop to the plot.  It is their tests of faith, their encounters in their search for truth which make for a great story.

Overall, a GREAT read!!

The Story of the Resurrection as You've Never Seen It Before
"Epic in scope, yet deeply personal, this novelization offers a unique perspective on the story of the resurrection. Roman Tribune Clavius is assigned by Pilate to keep the radical followers of the recently executed Yeshua from stealing the body and inciting revolution. When the body goes missing despite his precautions, Clavius must hunt it down.

His investigation leads him from the halls of Herod Antipas to the Garden of Gethsemane and brings him in touch with believer and doubter alike. But as the body still remains missing, Clavius commits to a quest for the truth--and answers that will not only shake his life but echo throughout all of history."

Buy It:  Risen: The Novelization of the Motion Picture is available wherever books are sold including Barnes and Noble, Amazon, and others.

Here’s your chance to start the new year off with a win. One lucky Three Boys and an Old Lady blog reader will receive a $15 Walmart eGift card. $10 may not seem like a lot but it’s enough to stock up on some last minute Christmas clearance gifts. Trust me. I bought a 6’ Christmas tree WITH lights, 2 animal massagers, 3 Jelly Belly BeanBoozled Jelly Beans Mystery Bean Dispenser, Christmas cards and wrapping paper less than $20 during an after Christmas Walmart shopping trip.

I was searching for some cough syrup when my friend’s kid spotted the Jelly Belly BeanBoozled Jelly Beans Mystery Bean Dispenser on sale for 50 cents. What a steal! The regular price is $10 so to find them on sale for 50 cents was a deal. We cleared the shelves.

A few rows down we spotted some animal neck massager…
