Summary

Summary

In this bestselling series Bodie and Brock Thoene have thrilled readers with an epic tale chronicling the struggle for the world's holiest and most turbulent city. As Jerusalem's Hope opens, strategist Moshe Sachar remains hidden in a secret tunnel beneath the Temple Mount, safely removed from the chaos of Israel's 1948 war of independence, while the funeral of an elder rabbi proceeds above him. Using the instructions the rabbi gave him before his death, Moshe opens another sacred scroll and is once again transported to the dramatic biblical story of a charismatic but mysterious prophet. As word of the miracles performed by this seer spreads, bloody violence erupts, threatening the future of the Roman state and revealing the prophet's surprising identity.

The resulting novels both inspire and educate, broadening readers' awareness of understanding important slices of history. Their critically acclaimed collaborations will stand as the benchmark in their category for years to come.

The Zion Covenant series comprises six novels covering events in Europe leading up to World War II; the five books in The Zion Chronicles describe the events surrounding Israel's statehood in 1948; the three books of The Shiloh Legacy provide an American perspective on the war.

The Thoenes made their home in Glenbrook, Nevada, but traveled frequently as they researched historical and geographical settings for their novels. They had three grown children and enjoyed grandparenting.
