    Well, this is the first book I have read by the Thoenes in years! My first historical fiction book was from their wonderful WWII series, and I always felt that they had the formula for writing historical fiction, especially in relation to history involving Jews. And they have not lost their touch as they tackle ancient Israel and the time of Christ. I love good Biblical fiction, and this definitely counts as such.

    From the first page, they drew me in. They made me consider portions of the well-known story of Lazarus and his family in a different way, and I was emotionally drawn into the story in a way I never have before. I am glad to know that this is the first in the series, and I can hardly wait to read the rest in the series! If you think that you know all there is to know about Lazarus, Mary, Martha, and Jesus, let me challenge you to give this book a try. You may find that you are pleasantly surprised.

    I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. I was not financially compensated, and all opinions are 100 percent mine.

    As far as biblical fiction goes, you can't get better then the Thoene's. Their depiction of Lazarus is insightful, captivating, and filled with such depth and beauty, it's as if you're standing right there in a first century vineyard.

    Now, if you're looking for a quick, entertaining read, look elsewhere. This is a first person bible story. There is a lot of scripture woven throughout the book, and yet, it is still a novel. In my opinion, "When Jesus Wept" is one of the most faith-filled pieces of Christian fiction out there.

    I am a huge fan of the Thoenes, and although I can't classify this as a personal favorite, I'm still so glad I read it. If you love biblical fiction then this is not to be missed, but for all of you who feel this wouldn't be your style (like me), I'd say read it anyways. After all, there's nothing like broadening your horizons with a good solid piece of writing. Stick through it, and I guarantee you'll come out understanding just a little more about our Lord...

    I mean, isn't that what we're here for?!

    This book makes you picture the Bible story of Jesus raising Lazarus from the dead in a way that seems like you were almost there. Even more interesting is the fact that it is told from Lazarus's perspective. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys Christian fiction.

    I loved the book. It brought the story of Lazarus, Mary and Martha to life for me. These characters are more real to me after reading the book. It was a wonderful account of Jesus' relationship with His friends.
