Book Review: The Searchers by Joseph Loconte

What about the two disciples whom Jesus
met on the road to Emmaus?

            Joseph Loconte explores the feelings and thoughts of Christians, using the Emmaus Road experience as a springboard. This author explores the grief aspect of those who had their hopes shattered by Christ’s death on the cross. He probes the minds of the two disciples and reminds us that we all, as believers, have endured the disillusionment these two faced.

            Mr. Loconte piqued my interest about how deeply the two disciples actually felt about what had transpired at Golgotha. This book challenged me to stay true to my desire to grow closer to Jesus. Mr. Loconte inspired me to search for God’s truth in all circumstances. This author made me think about different habits, customs, and thoughts I have practiced. I need to both replace a few of them with better ones and put others into use more often.

            Joseph Loconte uses his knowledge of world history to bring out examples of human frailty and the heartache that ensues when we allow our faith to slacken. This aspect of his writings kept me reading and waiting for what would come next.
            Mr. Loconte presented his case in an orderly fashion. He presents Biblical truth at the same time he unfolds new depths of the story of the two men on the road to Emmaus.
I would recommend this book to anyone who was in a teaching capacity in churches or to someone who searches for a deeper walk with God.
