A very good read!!!! 25. Oktober 2003
Von John Thornton - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
This is a very good book. The story line is well done. It is about a huge mega-star actor who is up for an academy award. The struggle revolves around the question, can anyone live out the Sermon on the Mount? God says "yes" and satan says "no." There is the "wager." (indeed, shades of Job) The story is very descriptive of the inner workings in movie productions. The characters are quite realistic and face problems that do not have simple answers. (you will ponder the outcomes) This makes the story apply to our own real life situations. The book
provides some fun twists and turns as well as an encouraging and illuminating self examination on how does one
live a righteous life. Included in the back are discussion
questions for each chapter. In my opinion, this book is every bit as good as
Bill Myers' previous work "Eli." This maybe his best work yet.

Brilliant Work - Extreme Success 27. Oktober 2003
Von Skip Ball - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
Few authors are capable of handling what Bill Myers has accomplished with extreme success. The Wager is both a gripping novella and a study in Christian living. Most Bible teachers are not good story tellers and most authors are not good teachers. Myers excels at both. Opening with an enticing page from a screenplay, casting believable characters within the compromising world of Hollywood, Myers forces the reader to consider extremes. If the protagonist Michael T. Steele can live out the teachings of Jesus Christ in corrupt Hollywood, than anyone can. The story is brilliant. The teaching is creative and challenging. The thought provoking questions and dialog compel readers to consider eternal ponderables in light of our confusing and often misguided culture. Undoubtedly, this is a five star book.

Excellent 1. Januar 2004
Von Dan Blankenship - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
Bill Myers did an amazing work putting this short novel together; a fast-paced yet easy flowing story with believable characters and a plot right out of today's headlines.
The Sermon on the Mount has broken the backs of many well-meaning Christians. This book does such a good job of describing the struggle for most followers of Christ that I loved every paragraph, from beginning to end. If you love reading C.S. Lewis, Frank Peretti, or Randy Alcorn, you'll love reading this great story by Mr. Myers.
This is now my favorite work by Bill Myers.

Thought-provoking. 14. März 2004
Von History Teacher - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
This combination of the Book of Job and the Sermon on the Mount worked surprisingly well. Myers doesn't fall into cliches or easy answers. It's a bit of an odd idea to combine a novel and a bible study, but if you're not interested in the Bible study, you don't have to do it. It might be interesting. But the book works well as a book without it.
The only thing that I didn't care for was the ending, which seemed a bit unrealistic. I don't want to give away too much so I will only say that the career change didn't seem necessary. However, the character of Steele was well-done, the book was funny and the idea of trying to live by the Sermon on the Mount is certainly a good one. I would read more by this author.
Excellent Message, So-So Tale 26. Juli 2009
Von Ken Fontenot - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
Satan bets against God's followers one more time in "The Wager." Much like in the Old Testament's Book of Job, author Bill Myers casts Hollywood star and Academy Award nominee Michael T. Steel in the starring role as God lets Satan twist the wheels of fate against a believer in order to test his faith and to see if he can live up to the standards set in Jesus' Sermon on the Mount.

Steel is put through quite a lot in this story. He's a successful film star, but his marriage has fallen apart. He is accused of pedophilia. He's pushed morally in his latest film. A pesky preacher keeps popping up on the radio and television no matter what frequency or channel Steel picks. Heck, he even gets a nasty rash from poison oak while trying to clear his head.

While the pressure mounts, Satan begins to believe that he'll finally get one over on the Big Guy. Does he? You'll have to read "The Wager" to find out.

The message in this story is very good. Myers addresses each section of the Sermon on the Mount (and devotes an entire chapter to the Lord's prayer), but the fictional tale that surrounds the message is tepid at best. The story moves along quickly, too quickly to really drive home the points of the Sermon. Also, there's no real attachment to Steel as he takes on each challenge that he faces.

Is this a bad book. Not at all. It's short length will probably attract a few folks who aren't willing to jump into larger stories. A Bible study and reflection guide is included with the story as well. I just wish that Myers had fleshed out the story a bit more.
