Loved it! Riveting; hard to put down. Can't wait to get the next one in the series. It detours from the original story line, as the main character is locked in with ancient scrolls. First scroll he reads expounds on the life of Mary Magdalene.
In The Jerusalem Scrolls, bestselling authors Bodie and Brock Thoene take the story back in time from the battle for Jerusalem in 1948 to tell an ancient tale of love, faith, and redemption. After days of brutal fighting against Arab forces, Moshe Sachar, the courageous leader of the Israelis, escapes to a tunnel under the Old City and discovers sacred scrolls that tell the history of his faith and people. Opening a scroll, Moshe becomes immersed in the extraordinary story from the first century A.D. of Miryam, a beautiful yet troubled young widow, and Marcus, her Roman suitor. With stirring accounts of many events and characters from the Bible, The Jerusalem Scrolls combines wonderful storytelling with a captivating historical setting.
This is a modern-day Bible story, but watch out! You may not want to let your kids read this one until you do! The story is a Bible-based Christian fiction, that goes into the elements of Bible stories, and helps one to understand some parts of the Bible. Also, wrapped up in the package is some Biblical history, a love story, some abortion, death, a love story with steamy scenes to visualize as you read, and lots more. A great read!
Another terrific book and a must read by the Thoene's. Although is is the 4th book in the series of the Zion Legacy....the first three book are during the first two week of the war and struggle over Jersalem. Irael has become it's own country after two thousand years. This book takes you back to the time our Lord Jesus walked the earth. Moshe the only Jew left in the city is below the Temple Mount with Alfie has started to read one of many scrolls in the order Rebbe Lebowitz instructed him in a note. dg
