Ben Hur Author Lew Wallace Characters Ë 9 This work has been selected by scholars as being culturally important and is part of the knowledge base of civilization as we know it This work was reproduced from the original artifact and remains as true to the original work as possible Therefore you will see the original copyright references library stamps as most of these works have been housed in ou. The first thing I want to address is the speed of this book I first read this book in the fall or winter of 1971 and at that time as a high school senior I was well accustomed to reading Jane Austen Charles Dickens Victor Hugo and all those other authors of the Victorian era and before Back then I read one Shakespeare play every year for high school English literature with support from my friends and the teacher and had even slogged through the assigned portions of Beowulf That saidin 1971 I was just awestruck dumbfounded enthralled by the book Ben Hur on so many levels It was one of the foundational books of my adolescence I tried to pick the book up again in 2011 40 years later and found it to be much harder to get into By this time I d seen the 1959 version twice and had even seen the 1925 version twice Incidentally some critics say the 1925 chariot race is superior to the 1959 version because of some of the heroic camera shots and stuntmen of the 1920s Check it out for yourselfSo I ve completed Ben Hur again now with the help of Audible books My point about the speed of this book is that we have all succumbed to the fast pace of Sesame Street In this fast moving era we can no longer tolerate pausing for a moment in the story to feel the breeze observe the delicate nuances of facial expressions and well chosen words smell the gardens marvel at the stars understand enough history of a childhood friendship to be able to comprehend the incomprehensible betrayal of that childhood friend absorb the emotion of innocent women incarcerated in a jail cell known to be infected with leprosy and to read long enough to fully be able to empathize with the women who are coping with the long term symptoms of leprosy as they mentally prepare for death from the disease I m ready to go back pull out my nursing textbooks to brush up on signssymptomstreatment of leprosyWell so I had an uncomfortable feeling that my life has accelerated enough in the last 40 years that the style of Ben Hur s author has become probably 4X as difficult for me to read as it was when I was 17 and well used to reading classics of the 1700s and 1800s This makes me feel some shame No wonder we get Alzheimer s I m well on my wayOK Enough of thatThe plot of this book is earthy emotional spiritual exciting just watch 1959 and 1925 All the elements of a fast moving plot sueezed into 90 120 minutesBut I think some of us have ignored the philosophical ethical and spiritual uestions posed and addressed in the book Some of the Victorian descriptions are begging us to slow down first and then take time to pick up and ponder the weighty uestions of man s existence and God s slow unfolding of His passionate pursuit and redemption of man throughout historyThis is the book that untimately led me to firm faith in Christ The book I read in 1971 it was a version printed in 1901 given to my Grandpa as a high school graduation gift illustrated with photographs of actors on a stage in New York City At the time of this printing the authorUnion generalGovernor Lew Wallace was still alive He insisted that if this book were to be portrayed onstage that no human was capable of playing the part of Jesus Christ the Son of God The Christ was to be represented as a light shining into the midst of the actors This is another indictment of our age In 1901 even the Broadway producers could be persuaded that Jesus Christ was too holy to be represented by a human actorYou undoubtedly know the story from the Paul Newman movie Slow down your life for a couple of hours every day and soak in this book Take time to understand the viewpoints of Ben Hur s associates that baby who had such an unusual birth attended by one incredibly bright star a chorus of angels in the sky a rush of shepherds to the postpartum recovery room the arrival of mysterious Wise Men from the East Was he to be a Savior of the eternal souls of man Was he to be a victorious King of Israel forever Was he to be both And if so how COULD he be both And was He GODTake time to feel with Judah Ben Hur the thirst for revenge His enemy his childhood playmate twisted an accusation to condemn his widowed mother his sweet little sister and Ben Hur himself to incarceration slave labor in a galley ship and inevitable death Of COURSE Judah Ben Hur wanted to overcome that enemy publicly Maybe even death in a chariot race And the search for his lost mother and sister that led him to the leper colony outside the city Wouldn t you want to kill the bastard He deserved to die for his flippant accusation of the Hur familyAnd the restored fortune of Judah Ben Hur himself How to use it for the promised Messiah of Israel This Jesus is a poor man He does not lead an army What better use of a fortune than to devote it to the heir of King David This man who restores sight to blind men and heals lepers Surely this is the man God promised to restore the eternal throne of David And Judah Ben Hur could be in on the ground floorAnd the two women who were attracted toby Judah Ben Hur Which was most exciting Which was most pure Which was most beautiful Which would be the best choice for Ben Hur as a lifelong companion See what I mean This is an EXCITING book And you need the time to sit back from the action to ponder the fathom deep philosophical spiritual uestions posed in the midst of this book This book was the best selling novel of the whole 19th century it surpassed Uncle Tom s Cabin To this day Ben Hur has never been out of print This is an exceptionally significant book in terms of literary historyAll I can say now is that it s written in a different style than we re used to Over the years we ve gradually become used to RUN Sally RUN faster faster faster and have drifted away from an afternoon playing a board game with the family with a pitcher of iced tea on the porch Just look at the previous reviews good movie but the book is weighted down with descriptions philosophical uestions I would encourage you to tighten up your belt sueeze on your thinking cap if you can find it and wade into this book like you KNOW you can conuer the distance in years Because if I can do it you can easily do it Take some time to lay the book down when the uestions get too heavy and just THINK about it for a while While you re shoveling snow or mowing grass or driving the kids to soccer Think about the uestions Ben Hur and Simonides and Balthazar are wrestling with Or think about the injustice Ben Hur s mother and sister are living and dying with Because these uestions and issues are the same ones we have while we re cheering Sally to Run Sally Run Gee Sally can t you run any FASTER This book takes fight and determination to read for those of us born in the 20th century It isn t written for a lazy reader of Harleuin romances It s written for someone who wants to develop teeth and the digestion to read a book you have to churn a bit Lew Wallace who wrote this book was a general with the Union army during the Civil War he witnessed some of the bloodiest battles this nation ever saw and wrestled with the weightiest spiritual reasons for fighting a war the value of a slave s soul and being He struggled for most of his life with having been blamed unjustly and unfairly for the direction the battle of Shiloh took He later served as governor of New Mexico during a time of violence and political corruption had to wrestle with justice versus forgiveness He had negotiated a contract of forgiveness with the outlaw Billy the Kid and wrestled with the powers that be to try to deliver this pardon even though he was living in a world of politicians This author was not a shallow man and when this book was written in 1880 it undoubtedly presented the dilemmas he d wrestled during this difficult period of American history I think he presents these stories concepts in a poetically beautiful manner and a spiritually cleansing manner Although the literary style is different from what we ve become accustomed to the concepts and uestions are cutting edgeWeight Watchers isn t easy Curves isn t easy 5K s aren t easy Marathons aren t easy You can sit on the couch and watch reruns on Me TV You can read through a Harleuin romance in a couple of days Or you can determine to train your mind and spirit and read one of the BEST BOOKS you ll ever read Although it was harder to tackle at age 60 than it was when I was 17 this is still one of the very best books I ve ever had the privilege to read I still have my 1901 edition and it is one of my most highly treasured heirlooms But my recorded version of Ben Hur is something I want to burn to CD to share with my kids grandkids descendants It is truly one of the most significant books I ve EVER read Or listened toTackle it

Third Reading Lent 2017Could there be a better classic to read during LentSecond 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 uick moving it is the beautiful scenery that Wallace paints that stays with me Wallace carefully orients the reader in the sights smells and people in the background of each scene This makes for very entertaining reading but in the scenes with Christ this leaves a reader feeling as though they were actually there We see Christ through 3rd person eyes but sometimes we also see him through Judah s eyes and this is very helpful during the Passion We relate to Judah s struggle against wanting to defend Christ with a sword against the Romans but being bound by His will Wallace does a brilliant job of drawing Judah right into those famous biblical scenes without compromising the Gospel one iota His ability to hold a fictional plot line in tandem with these eternally famous final days of Christ s life is inspired I was particularly gratified by how Wallace was able to include Judah into the most famous scenes of the Gospel without changing Christ s words one syllable The way that he fills in the context is very inspiring to this reader In fact I wish that biblical movies would study the final chapters of this brilliant book There are so many interesting themes that one could teach an entire year on this text and the rabbit trails it takes us on Egyptian mythology Eastern religions Jewish customs Jewish law Judaism across different cultures Roman expansion and occupation Roman military engineering specifically their dominance at sea Roman games specifically chariot racing Arabian horses Leprosy Jewish banking Slavery the life of Christ persecution of the early Christians etc etc etc This is a book that I will re read every few years and always during Lent This is a beautiful example of fiction revealing Truth Goodness and Beauty I am a better person for having let the Prince of Hur move into my heart First reading Apr 1 13 2014 Without a particular thought to the season in which I chose to read this I was by Divine Intervention scheduled to read this at the end of Lent The incredible last 50 pages on Palm Sunday weekend Ben Hur was a beloved childhood movie I had no idea how much richer and profound the book would be Beginning with the wisemens meeting and ending with the persecution of Christians by Nero this book is a Christ story as well as an incredible fictional adventure and love story Absolutely incredible
