Young Ben-Hur and Messala were the best of friends. They loved to race chariots. One day, Messala had to leave Jerusalem and his Jewish friend to study in Rome and become a Roman officer. When Messala came back, the boyhood friends were now men but friends no longer. Messala falsely imprisoned Ben-Hur's family and sent him to the galleys.
But Ben-Hur survived. And he returned, seeking his family – and Messala. What happened next, and what became of them at the hands of a magnificent Stranger, makes Ben-Hur: A Race to Glory an epic, thrilling, inspiring adventure of two childhood friends—one Roman and one Jew—whose friendship is tested. Only the healing grace of Christ can make Ben-Hur whole again.
