Bartholomew's Passage is an engaging story that guides families through the Advent season. This is the first year that we have read BARTHOLOMEW'S PASSAGE as a family for Advent devotions. We read JOTHAM& JOURNEY, by the same author, two years in a row, and really enjoyed the way the two stories intertwine! You can enjoy BARTHOLOMEW'S PASSAGE without ever reading JOTHAM& JOURNEY. Both stories stand on their own as an exciting adventure set in the time just before the birth of Jesus. As both stories allude to the other, you will enjoy alternating a different book each year.

It is a delightful story and a wonderful tradition with a devotion following each chapter. I am thrilled these have been republished and look forward to the third next year.

We have really enjoyed the story parts of this book, which are exciting and well written. However, we were disturbed and saddened to find this explanation of God at the end of one of the chapters. I'll let the text speak for itself (hang on until the end):
"We’ll never know how many times God has stepped in to protect us, or guide us, or prevent some evil. But sometimes He can’t. It seems kind of strange, but it’s His great love for us that sometimes prevents Him from helping us. He has given us free will, to do as we please. We are not slaves to Him, He doesn’t force us to follow His rules. He only offers us the joy of an abundant life if we do, and then He allows us to make our own choice.
But the price of that freedom is that He has no control over some of the storms and tragedies we face."
Is this really true of the God of the Bible that we worship, the God that we celebrate this advent & Christmas season, that He has no control over some of the trials we face?
No, that is not the God of the Bible! Psalm 139 states, "Even before a word is on my tongue, behold, O Lord, you know it altogether (v.4)" & "Your eyes saw my unformed substance; in your book were written, every one of them, the days that were formed for me, when as yet there was none of them (v.16)". There are so many examples I could give here, but this is a book review, not a theology debate :) The point is, the story is great, but the theology about that God they are seeking to point us to is terrible! Read the explanations at the end of the chapters with caution.

We really appreciate Arnold Ytreeide's storytelling in this book.

He seamlessly weaves the facts we know from Scripture with some Traditonal ideas & his fictional imaginings to tell an engaging tale of how the coming of Messiah Jesus could have interacted with several compelling families and Individuals, the most prominent of which is the young lad, Bartholomew, and his Mentor / Adopted father, Nathan.

The book chapters are set in episode format, following the Advent season, as they days count down to Christmas Eve. Our kids ages 11 to 21 would look forward to each nights chapter & application, most of the time a relevant Scripture verse.

This book was preceeded by Jotham's Journey and we obtained it after having that volume and having used it for several Advent seasons. I now note that there are other's like Istar's Odyssey & Tabitha's Travels.

We now have another year to obtain those books for upcoming Advent seasons !

Keep up the great work, Arnold !

We read Jotham's Journey a couple of years ago and, so, this year we decided to get another book of the series and picked this one. It has a reading a day (usually 2-3 pages) with a cliffhanger to encourage you to read again the next day. This story seemed a bit "darker" than Jotham's--it even has a warning at the beginning--but my eight year old is into Star Wars and it wasn't much worse than that, imo. If you're more concerned with the biblical accuracy, you may wish to pass by this book, but if you just want a good story to get you through the advent season and get you thinking about Christmas and all that it means, this is a great book for you and your family.

This felt weaker than the first book, to which it is partially a sequel. To be fair, Advent was extremely short this year, but it felt like the passages were overly long per day.

Because we see a revisit of characters from the first book, it felt like we had too many villains for this one season. We had the evil Romans who kidnap Bartholomew, the evil Roman slaveholder who is going to cut his hands off before he gets away, and then we see the evil Decha of Meggido from the first book who is also overwhelmingly evil. I didn't feel like Bartholomew was nearly as interesting as Jotham (from the first book), nor was the supporting cast sufficiently fresh.
  • Delirium
This is a nice book and we did enjoy reading it each evening. As I write this review we are halfway through the book and my complaints are really about the historical accuracay of the book. The foremost is the fact that Bartholomew prays to "Jehovah " and says that. Jehovah was not a word until the 1800s. Jews would have said "Adonai" when they prayed. JHVH would have been written but Adonai was what was said. the vowels in Jehovah were not added until the 1800s. Also, they continually use the word "skunk face" this is a bit misleading as Skunks are not really in Israel. There is an animal called a polecat which is related but isn't a Skunk.

Read this to my threee boys 3, 5, and 8, this Christmas season. They enjoyed the story each night asking if I could read another chapter each day to see what happened next. There is some violence and sad events. We spoke about these, being thankful for the world we live in now and our family. My husband felt like the story was similar to Jotham's Journey, which we read last year. My thoughts are during the time of Christ's birth, that was the life many people lived, you can't change that and you can't change the story of His birth. The kids and I enjoyed it! Next year we'll get the third one written.

This series is spectacular. Writer reminds me of Pearl S. Buck. He seems to be able to dig down into the deep things of life with kids while simultaneously remaining age-appropriate. These books are just classic. Kids and adults alike are spellbound. Makes you wish advent was every month.
