Synopsis

"One is watching history unfold when reading the Thoenes' work." (Houston Chronicle)

"Fast-paced, often riveting action . . . scenes that rival those of James Michener." (New York Post)

With sales of more than seven million copies, Bodie and Brock Thoene's works of historical fiction have topped bestseller lists and carved a lasting place in the hearts of their readers.

The first three books in their beloved Zion Legacy series began with the sweeping saga of Jerusalem's explosive history of 1948. Now, the Thoenes return with a novel that is unique to the series—a riveting story within a story that transports readers from the war in 1948 back in time to the first century A.D. In The Jerusalem Scrolls, Moshe Sachar, the leading strategist for the Jewish forces, follows the dying wishes of an elder and escapes to a secret tunnel under Jerusalem where sacred scrolls are kept. Instructions tell him to open a particular scroll first, and when Moshe sits down to read he becomes immersed in an extraordinary biblical tale. With dramatic portrayals of events and characters from the Bible and a rich backdrop, The Jerusalem Scrolls is a superb, spellbinding novel. Its magnificent storytelling, historical authenticity, and moving love story will fascinate the Thoenes' growing legion of fans as well as lovers of historical and religious fiction.

In their first attempt at crossing over to mainstream audiences, these award-winning evangelical Christian novelists (the Zion Chronicles series) fashion a rather formulaic tale of bloody battle in which Jews and Christians of unsurpassed bravery and goodness fight evil Arab Muslims who oppose th...

Characters from the first novel return to fight for Jerusalem's Old City, and while they remain one-dimensional, the suspense builds as multiple cliff-hangers keep readers guessing about what they will do next and whether they will survive.

The Thoenes' Christian message can sometimes be overstated: a mysterious Jesus figure appears disguised as an elderly gardener, and armies that oppose the Jews find themselves turned back by divinely whipped desert winds and angry hornets (per biblical promises to God's Chosen People).
