Millions of visitors to Israel visit the looming and isolated ruins of Masada to contemplate the spirit of the martyrs who died there in 73 A.D. in defense of their beliefs. These "Zealots" are famous for their final moments, but until now the beginning of their story has not been told. In Sons of Light, John Merrill vividly recreates real life characters and historical events to carry the reader back to the Zealots' early years.
Drawn from extensive research into the Dead Sea Scrolls, the work of the first-century historian Flavius Josephus, the Bible, and Pseudepigraphic sources, this story follows five generations of Jewish rebels fighting for independence from the mighty Roman Empire.
