Ben-Hur: A Tale of the Christ is a novel by Lew Wallace and was considered the most influential Christian book of the 19th century. Ben Hur tells the adventures of Judah Ben-Hur, a fictional Jewish prince from Jerusalem, who is enslaved by the Romans at the beginning of the 1st century and becomes a charioteer and a Christian. Running in parallel with Judah's narrative is the unfolding story of Jesus, who comes from the same region and is a similar age. The novel reflects themes of betrayal, conviction, and redemption, with a revenge plot that leads to a story of love and compassion.

Great Classic. This seems to me to be Lew Wallace's one hit wonder. Superb realism, although I know anyone but the diehard reader will possibly get turned off by the wordiness of descriptions and older language and dialogue. No problem for me though, when the story is this good.

After an unexpected accident, Ben Hur, a Jewish prince and merchant of Jerusalem, is arrested and sold as a slave. Through his courage and fortitude, he works himself out of serfdom and into a respected Roman family. Determined to get revenge and enact destruction on his enemies, he encounters the person of Christ and learns the value of mercy and forgiveness. One of the most widely read novels of the 19th century!
