This book is outstanding! It is well written and well researched. It would appeal to YA and Adult readers. I started to read it and wanted to finish it within 40 days as it was designed. I received the book as a Library Thing member giveaway and so glad I had the opportunity to experience this book. The balance of truth and wit was refreshing. ( )

I received this book from the author through a giveaway he had on LibraryThing, and the following is my honest opinion.

This book came at just the right time for me. I had been doing some reading on different theories of spiritual growth and was very confused. Scott Douglas did an excellent job of taking scripture, connecting it to the thinking and customs of the time, and adding a dash of humor to make it very approachable. As a native Catholic, I had heard sermons about the Crucifixion and Ascension but never noticed small details like how the number 40 is so significant in Scripture. Jesus was tempted for 40 days, the Israelites wandered the desert for 40 years, and Jesus was on Earth for 40 days between the resurrection and the Ascension. Why is this important? As Mr Douglas points out, those 40 days are a metaphor for our journey in faith. It all makes such perfect sense.

There are self-help books on spirituality that are heavy-handed and there are books on spirituality that help you grow. Jesus Ascended is definitely one that gave me the facts that I needed and gently helped me make decisions on my own. The best recommendation I can give is that I will be sharing this with friends, I don't do that unless I'm sure that it's an author and book that I can stand behind. ( )

I received a MOBI.file for this book from the author through a giveaway he had on LibraryThing, and the following is my honest opinion.

Anyone who is a [devout] Christian believes, knows and accepts that Jesus had died on the cross for their sins. And those who now come to the Lord for the first and take Him as their Savoir are likewise transformed and freed of their sins.

During the Lord’s time here on earth, he had been a Great Teacher, teaching anyone who would listen to Him, a far better way in which to live their lives. There are scores of books that discuss this period in great detail as there are scores that deal with what happened after the Lord’s Resurrection.

No one gets instantly transformed the moment they come to and believe in the Savoir, and neither had this been the case for any of His Apostles until after His resurrection.

Despite all the nonfiction Christian books I’ve read/reviewed, I still consider myself being a layperson, however, what amazes me the most is there had been 40 days between the Lord’s resurrection and His ascension to Heaven. The number 40 is quite significant in the Bible.

It rained for 40 days/nights [GENSIS 7:12].
Moses spent 40 years tending flocks in the desert after killing the Egyptian [ACTS 7:30].
Moses spent 40 days/nights on Mt. Sinai [EXODUS 24:18].
The Israelites spent 40 years wandering the desert [DEUTEROMONY 8:2-5].
Jesus had gotten tempted for 40 days/nights [MATTHEW 4:2]
Etc.

What the author, Scott Douglas, has done in his book, is to give his readers an examination of what had transpired during these 40 days/nights. Mr. Douglas points the small occurring details that ultimately caused individuals like Peter and John to become the powerhouses of the Lord after His resurrection. What I liked most about the writing of this book is that it had not been overhandling spiritual, Mr. Douglas wrote it so it could easily get understood by the masses of individuals that might read this book, and it, for this reason, I’ve given Mr. Douglas and his book 5 STARS.
