Great book  Mar 28, 2010
Bill meyers is one of my favorite fiction authors. His fiction is clean, inspiring, and action-packed. This is a parallel story to the struggle Job went through. A story of a man trying to live a section of scripture, something like applying the golden rule or What Would Jesus Do?, but more accurately, as many people think Jesus would do whatever they do. This wager is controlled by Scripture, not by personal whims,prejudices or feelings. Great story line.
Excellent Message, So-So Tale  Jul 26, 2009
Satan bets against God's followers one more time in "The Wager." Much like in the Old Testament's Book of Job, author Bill Myers casts Hollywood star and Academy Award nominee Michael T. Steel in the starring role as God lets Satan twist the wheels of fate against a believer in order to test his faith and to see if he can live up to the standards set in Jesus' Sermon on the Mount.

Steel is put through quite a lot in this story. He's a successful film star, but his marriage has fallen apart. He is accused of pedophilia. He's pushed morally in his latest film. A pesky preacher keeps popping up on the radio and television no matter what frequency or channel Steel picks. Heck, he even gets a nasty rash from poison oak while trying to clear his head.

While the pressure mounts, Satan begins to believe that he'll finally get one over on the Big Guy. Does he? You'll have to read "The Wager" to find out.

The message in this story is very good. Myers addresses each section of the Sermon on the Mount (and devotes an entire chapter to the Lord's prayer), but the fictional tale that surrounds the message is tepid at best. The story moves along quickly, too quickly to really drive home the points of the Sermon. Also, there's no real attachment to Steel as he takes on each challenge that he faces.

Is this a bad book. Not at all. It's short length will probably attract a few folks who aren't willing to jump into larger stories. A Bible study and reflection guide is included with the story as well. I just wish that Myers had fleshed out the story a bit more.
The Wager  Jul 4, 2009
Can't review this book ... still waiting to receive it. Was ordered June 6, 2009, today's date is July 4th, 2009!!
Have to give it 1 star ... won't accept unless a star is marked.
Excellent story but...  May 27, 2009

review: Excellent book. I didn't want to put it down and finished it in one day. I'm not sure though how some of the questions in the back fit with the story.

Michael is a famous actor and a Christian. He is put to the test in his career as well as in his personal life. There are examples of how things aren't always as they appear and people especially the media, twist events and words to ruin a person (for example, with Charlie; in the television interview; and regarding the poison oak episode).

Michael thinks as a Christian he has to "do, do, do" and he tries to obey those things in the Sermon on the Mount, symbolically throwing up his hands in frustration knowing he can't live up to it. No way. No how. His sister explains what a relationship with God should look like in the wonderful example she uses of the apple tree. So when the author asks some of the questions at the end of the book such as regarding Chapters 6 and 9, I'm not sure I'm tracking with those (questions). The story says one thing but the questions seem to be agreeing with the "do, do, do."
Don't Bet On It!  Dec 21, 2008
Here's a story of a modern day, successful, Super Star, who happens to be a nice guy. Find out what happens when a man who has everything accepts a challenge from God. Encouraging and inspiring!
