The Searchers takes you on a journey with the 2 men that Jesus joined on the road to Emmaus after He had risen from the dead.  As you journey with them, Joseph Loconte speaks to various issues and emotions that these men would have been facing as they journeyed toward their hometown.  Loconte expounds on various topics, such as grief, conspiracy, angels, myths, and more.  Ultimately, in the end, it comes down to choice.  As Loconte writes, “Wherever we are in our journey, whatever we believe, our earthly march will come to an end.  Whether we meet Jesus at the moment of our death, or when he comes again – without disguise – we will face him.”

When I first started this book, I didn’t think I was going to like it.  Loconte’s writing style is different than I normally read, and so I had difficulties at first getting into the book.  However, as I read further, I found myself intrigued and barely able to put the book down.  Loconte drew on different instances in history that correlated with his points about the 2 travelers, and wove them together so well, that it made reading this book enjoyable.  I think anyone would do well to have this book in their collection.  It was well-researched and well-written, and I highly recommend it to anyone who is searching for answers.
