The Thoene's have done it again. They bring the historical events of the Bible to life. Have a Biblical sceptic read this book! A college astronomy professor! I'm sure they will come out with a new opinion of our amazing Lord!
The AD Chronicles are almost like reading the Bible. I love the way the Thoenes bring the charachters to life. You feel that you are there. Their attention to detail is keen. The story of Zadok and Rachel saving the life of the little black boy by adopting him and the little black lamb by covering him with the the skin of the mama ewe's dead baby resonated with me.
I have always enjoyed reading the different Thoene series, but this one is just so much different than the rest of the series the authors have written. The A.D. Chronicles series is set in Jerusalem before, during and after Christ's life. You encounter so many characters that your have read of in the gospels and some that are not recorded in the gospels. Even as a Christian, I know so much about the life of Christ but these stories make is so much more real. I recommend this series of books to readers who enjoy historical Christian fiction and who also love to read about the life of Christ.
