I just finished another outstanding Theone book. I was excited to have the chance to review this book because I wanted it badly anyway. I read all the Theone novels I can get my hands on. I am a Bible study nut and these novels, although fiction are woven throughout with truths that inspire me to dig deeper into the Bible.
Behold The Man is the 3rd book in the Jerusalem Chronicles, a series following Jesus and His followers.
I love that many of the vivid characters have been present in more than one series. I feel as if I know them personally after reading about them for years.
There is a discussion guide in the back, and this is a great choice for a Book club. So much meaty dialogue would come out of this book!
Behold The Man travels through Jesus' last days and crucifixion through three major people who had interaction with Him: Pilate, Claudia, Pilate's wife, and the Centurion ( who has been one of my favorite characters in many of Bodie and Brock's novels).
If you love excellent writing, very well-developed characters and storylines, colorful people and thorough historical research, you will be enthralled with this book. The Theone's never fail to deliver emotion and deep truth with engaging imagination all rolled into one glorious tale. Intrigue, danger, joy, love, passion, fear, greed, heroism, kindness and cruelty - you could not possibly fail to fall in love with some characters, sympathize with or despise others. All in all, another successful work for my favorite authors.
