9780670030125: The Jerusalem Scrolls (The Zion Legacy, Book 4)

"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.

Review:

Prolific authors Bodie and Brock Thoene have earned a loyal readership for their fictional sagas of Jerusalem's stormy history. In The Jerusalem Scrolls, the fourth book in the Zion Legacy series, the husband-and-wife team surprise readers with a new spin, creating a story within a story and swapping time periods. It's 1948 when the tale opens, and flames are engulfing the Jewish Quarter. The battle for Old City Jerusalem is lost. Moshe Sachar and Alfie Halder escape the chaos through a secret passageway that leads to a cavernous, subterranean library, where the most sacred Jewish texts lie safely hidden. As Moshe prepares for their long confinement, he finds a tightly rolled papyrus scroll inscribed with the names Miryam and Marcus. He reads, and the scene shifts to the first century A.D., where a love story unfolds. Faithful fans of the series may have to stretch a bit to make the transition from following characters they've come appreciate to enjoying this diversion to a biblical epic. But the Thoenes have the skill to pull it off. Their ability to craft a historical novel and their careful attention to detail and description have resulted in sales of 6 million copies of their books in print, and eight Gold Medallion awards. --Cindy Crosby
