After more than a year of my mom's urging, I finally decided to read a Thoene book. I am so glad I did. When I finished this novel, I had to sit for several minutes to let the content simmer. The Thoene's are a talented couple who combine their respective talents very well! In this first novel of the Jerusalem Chronicles trilogy, we follow Lazarus' story, along with his sisters Mary and Martha. Peripheral characters are quickly recognizable even by those aren't overly familiar with the Gospels. The Thoene's cite their biblical sources expertly and use both Testaments, which really adds to the impact of this book.
There were a few assumptions that the authors made that I disagreed with, but since the assumptions are interpretations of situations that no one except those present could really provided a definitive answer to, I didn't mind-and it didn't ruin the story for me.
We meet Lazarus as an adult immediately following a tragic family accident. Lazarus eventually meets and befriends Jesus the Nazarene. Through his experiences with the Lord, he finds himself fighting his own demons and ultimately finding redemption in a way he never expected.
