By: Gen. Lew Wallace
Ben-Hur by Lewis Wallace is a historical novel, published in 1880 and has been widely translated ever since the first edition. The story depicts the oppressive Roman occupation of ancient Palestine and the origins of Christianity. The main character of the novel Judah Ben-Hur is wrongly accused by his former friend Messala (who is a Roman), of attempting to kill a highly ranked Roman official. He is then sent to be a slave on a ship and his mother and sister are imprisoned. Many years later Ben-Hur returns and wins a chariot race against Messala; and is later in the story reunited with his now leprous mother and sister. His mother and sister are cured on the day of the Crucifixion, and the family is converted to Christianity. Overall, I would have to say that Lewis Wallace has created one of the most enduring and entertaining novels of all time; and I would definitely recommend it to anyone remotely interested in well-written literature An interesting saidelight that is usually overlooked about Ben-Hur is that the book was written by Lew Wallace, a general who fought for the Union in the American Civil War.

This web site is dedicated to Mr. Maltie Sassaman, my fourth grade teacher. When I entered his class I could not read. When I left his class at the end of the school year I was reading at a sixth grade level and I haven't stopped reading since. Were it not for Mr. Sassaman, this page would not exist.
