The Thoene's have scored another good one. I have almost the whole series and am getting the next one soon. They instill in us the powerful messege of Jesus. Excellent reading and I would recommend there books to everyone.
Such pagentry... Such imagery (?) If you are like me, and have never had the opportunity to visit the Holy Land, well the Thoene's have a bargain for you. Not only can you visit Jerusalem, but you can "see" it in the first century at a very reasonable cost! I have finished the first eleven books of the A.D. Chronicles series and book 12 is on the way. As is true with all of their other novels, the Thoenes paint a magnificent portrait of a time long since lived in a place that has changed a great deal since the setting of the series. Providing names and histories to those individuals we think we know from God's Word, Bodie and Brock demonstrate an amazing gift that offers the casual Christian reader a wonderful walk through an ancient time and land. To those with a deeper understanding of the Bible and it's teaching, this series paints a magnificent portrait guaranteed to richly bless you. (I can't wait for the mailman to bring my next volume.)
Your book 11th Guest is excelleny as usual. I always look forward to the next one. Will there be a 12th? I have read 34 of your books and I just loved them. When I read the Gospel of John, all the characters mean so much more and scripture simply comes alive now.
I have sincerely enjoyed this A.D series more than any of the other books written by the Thoenes. They depict the person of Jesus Christ like no other author I have read - and I am an avid reader since I was a young child. I am in the process of rereading them again and enjoying the process more than the first time.
Bodie and Brock never dissappoint me! I have read all of their books and they have such a gift of bringing the Messiah to life in such a personal way. In this book the characters show such commitment and love for their Messiah...can we show any less...keeps you on edge during the whole masterpiece..cant put it down I cant wait for the twelfth!
