A Review of The Searchers by Joseph Loconte

Based in a time shortly after the death of Jesus, Joseph Loconte’s book the searchers finds two disillusioned disciples walking down the road to Emmaus. Loconte uses Luke’s account of this biblical story and this seems fitting as they are both historians. You can read the background for the book in Luke 24:13-35

A third man joins their journey, a man they should have instantly recognize but they a blinded to his true identity. Only after a conversation and a meal with him do they recognize who he is.

Their conversation is full of meaning and wisdom for all. The book is a great read for audiences of all ages. If you have been searching for life’s meaning, this is a great read for you. If you are walking by faith but you find yourself disillusioned and depressed at times, this book is for you.

The book has wide appeal as it draw on everything  from politics to popular culture to tell the story and unpack it’s wisdom for the reader. As we learn of their reason for hope we discover our own. Hope may just fill your heart as you read this “Quest for faith in the Valley of Doubt.”
