9780141002187: Thunder from Jerusalem (The Zion legacy)

We are thrilled to have the second installment in Bodie and Brock Thoene's new series on audio. "Thunder from Jerusalem" picks up where Jerusalem Vigil left off, in the midst of the dramatic events in 1948, war-torn Jerusalem. The production of the audio is unique in the fact that the whole Thoene family takes part. A real family ensemble, with original music arranged and composed by their son. Jake and an abridgment by their daughter, Rachel. They are recorded in London, England.

Review:

It is 19 May, 1948. The state of Israel is five days old. The city of Jerusalem is tenuously poised for a clash that will be critical in the life of the new country. Holding the keys to Israeli victory is a diverse, rag-tag group: Peter Wallich, once a teacher of agriculture in the kibbutz, now instructing teens in the assembly of Molotov cocktails; the 74-year-old Mother Superior, who desperately wants to preserve her convent from annihilation; Commander Moshe Sachar and his wife Rachel, who cling together amidst the horrors of war; and an Arab street urchin, Daoud, who repays the kindness of the "infidels" in the best way he knows how. Interspersed throughout is the appearance of a mysterious old gardener, with wounds on the palms of both hands.

In the Zion Legacy series, the Thoenes return to a cast of characters and themes from their best-selling Zion Chronicles series that earned them a sterling reputation and a faithful readership in the Christian fiction arena. This second instalment, Thunder from Jerusalem, starts slowly as the characters are re-introduced, and the stage is set. Then, the pace accelerates. The lives of Muslims, Jews and Catholics all intersect in a tale of romance and suffering, patriotism, and betrayal. Here is solid historical research paired with dramatic storytelling--a combination that has won Brodie and Brock Thoene eight Gold Medallion Awards.

Those who enjoyed the best-selling Jerusalem Vigil, the first book in the Zion Legacy series, won't want to miss this latest offering from the pens of the popular Thoenes. --Cindy Crosby
