–Will he ever get revenge?
–Will his family ever be freed?
–And what does Jesus of Nazareth have to do with Ben-Hur’s goals?
Ben-Hur made history for the way it combined a reverent portrait of Jesus with sequences of action, emotion and suspense that have enthralled millions of readers. Now its formal old-fashioned prose has been brought up to date in a riveting new version that accompanies the release of the magnificent 2016 film starring Jack Huston, Toby Kebbell, and Morgan Freeman.
Each edition includes a full-color section of production and film photographs and a mini-biography of the original author, Civil War general Lew Wallace.
