Winner, 2004 Logos Bookstore Award for Fiction

Go back in time to first century Jerusalem—just after the massacre of Jews before Passover—a dark time in the nation's history. Many long to see Yeshua . . . be healed by Yeshua . . . find hope in Yeshua. Others feel threatened and seek to destroy him.

Meet Peniel, a blind beggar who longs to see the True Light. Flee on horseback with Marcus, a Roman centurion searching for Yeshua while on the run from Ceasar. Shudder as government offcials plan to assassinate the Galilean prophet. Pray with Zodak, chief shepherd of Israel, for the Messiah he met at the manger. Feel the pain of Susanna and Maenen, a couple in love, forbidden to be together.The one constant in all of their lives is Yeshua . . . loved or loathed . . . a man who will forever change their lives . . . and the world as we know it.

About the Author:

BODIE AND BROCK THOENE (pronounced Tay-nee) have written over 45 works of historical fiction. That these best sellers have sold more than 10 million copies and won eight ECPA Gold Medallion Awards affirms what millions of readers have already discovered-the Thoenes are not only master stylists but experts at capturing readers' minds and hearts.

From AudioFile:

Sean Barrett depicts multiple emotions--especially fear, passion, and excitement--in a wide array of characters. The story begins in modern-day Israel and then moves Palestine during the time of the New Testament. The harrowing story of Peniel, a beggar blind from birth, is fraught with excitement as he yearns for the Messiah to come and bring peace. Suspense and romance also play a part in this wonderful story, the first of 10 in the A.D. Chronicles series. Barrett adds just the right touches of drama to keep one glued to one's earphones. N.L. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine
